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…

DHS Covers Up Failures of U.S. Counterterrorism Centers

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

More than a decade after the Islamic terrorists who attacked the U.S. obtained driver’s licenses in various states the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to implement an effective plan to prevent extremists from exploiting the system’s vulnerabilities. In fact, fake documents can still be used to easily get…


$1 Bil Later, DHS Pulls Plug On Faulty “BioWatch” System

After blowing $1 billion on faulty “live-saving” technology that was supposed to detect biological attacks, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is quietly pulling the plug on the failed system.

Iraqi Court Absolves Terrorist Freed By U.S. After Killing Soldiers

Surprise, surprise the Hezbollah terrorist released by the Obama Administration to Iraq out of respect for the country’s sovereignty won’t make it to the U.S. to face trial for killing five American soldiers.

In a staggering move, the Obama Administration has caved in to the demands of big labor, quietly abandoning a crucial plan to secure the nation’s vulnerable chemical plants from terrorists.
