72 Department of Homeland Security Employees On Terrorist Watchlist

Congressman Stephen Lynch (D) MA:

"...Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector General did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security. The director had to resign because of that. Then we went further and did and eight-airport investigation. We had staffers go into eight different airports to test the department of homeland security screening process at major airports. They had a 95 percent failure rate. We had folks—this was a testing exercise, so we had folks going in there with guns on their ankles, and other weapons on their persons, and there was a 95 percent failure rate..."


Oops.

1. Serious question - should we eliminate the terrorist watchlist altogether?

It would appear there have been tons of mistakes, not even beginning to include all of the shady stuff with regards to constitutional liberties.
