Could this be a joke?

DHS Ignores Security Lapses at Biochemical Labs

U.S. Lets Saudis Bypass Regular Airport Security

DHS Plugs Secure Border as Grenades Explode Near Area U.S. Consulate

U.S. Lets Naturalized Terrorists, Spies Keep Citizenship

An astonishing number of naturalized U.S. citizens have been convicted of grave national security crimes—including terrorism, espionage and theft of sensitive technology—yet the government allows them to keep their American citizenship.

Years after 9/11 U.S. Fails to Regulate Foreign Student Visas

Though a number of Islamic terrorists have entered the U.S. with student visas, the Homeland Security agency responsible for overseeing educational institutions that host foreigners rarely combats fraud or enforces laws that could help prevent future attacks. Considering that two of the 9/11 pilots, the would-be Wall Street bomber and…

$5.8 Mil “Text Against Terror” Fails To Provide Any Tips

DHS Covers Up Failures of U.S. Counterterrorism Centers

Fake Docs Used in Several States to Get Driver’s License
