    I read a news article recently which claimed that the numbers have dwindled dramatically with the Federal Protective Service Police. If this is true, what a shame. How soon we forget 911....... I think the only Government that "gets it" is the Israelis. They never let their guard down....... We, unfortunately, have politicians like John Edwards who don't even think we are in a "War on Terror". Hopefully we smarten up!

    yes, FPS has dwindled with funding and numbers so badly that its ineffective. ICE/DHS are starving the agency out. Makes no sense to me since the DHS office is IN a federal building and i would think that they would atleast want to avoid another waco texas or a 9/11 on a greater scale. What people dont get is that this is a 3 front war. The war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan and the war at home. Domestic terror is still a real threat as well as foreign nationals living in this country. Remember the terrorist for 9/11 flew out of logan! This country needs to realize that the terrorists havent lost the capabilitie to strike at this country simply because we are in Iraq.

    Yeah. I have to give her credit (as much as I can't stand her). Of course it was purely political motivation, but whatever. This adminstration let her walk right in and take the glory. Nothing but bungling since day one.

    The fact that DHS was defunding this agency, along with other agencies which protect critical infrastructure, was mind boggling. I think they intended to replace them with private contractors. I'd love to see a cost/benefit on that. Total BS.

    The HR 1 bill will add monies for port and railroad security too, which means more railroad and port cops.
