Not surprising, sadly
The DHS is a knee-jerk mop-up of some 49 lesser agencies, or something to that tune, and is famous for its uplifting of minimum wage rent-a-cops into full blown unfirable federal agents with powers for icing. This is what the USoA entrusts its national security to, and they get the panem et circenses they deserve. A bit of a pity that the rest of the world gets to be a player in the circus and we in Europe have found to our horror that our politicians actually like dancing to that tune. Do we deserve what we get? Discuss.
