U.S. has not developed a plan to keep bomb materials from crossing border

Five years after Department of Homeland Security officials vowed to block the importation of radioactive materials that could be used to make a bomb, they still have not closed security gaps at U.S. borders, according to government auditors and researchers.

The failure to develop a strategic plan has delayed the creation of a "global nuclear detection architecture" that would guide a variety of federal agencies that share responsibility for preventing terrorists from detonating a nuclear bomb in the United States, the Government Accountability Office, the investigative arm of Congress, has found.

Instead of formulating a plan, the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, part of DHS, spent more than $200 million on an ill-fated project to develop and deploy thousands of new high-tech detectors for screening vehicles and cargo at ports, according to the GAO.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the Department of Homeland Security: the best thing the US can do to keep itself safe is by not mucking about in other people's countries to obtain, or get access to, resources which do not belong to the US!

If the Federal Government had spent the money we have spent on conducting the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq on R&D for alternative energy, we would have had something that could power a jet fighter or a tank by now, making wars for resources unnecessary.
