Homeland Security Can't Even Guard Its Own Building

A report has come forward which states that security guards at Homeland Security headquarters say the agency entrusted with protecting the U.S.homeland is having difficulty safeguarding its own command center.

A litany of problems have been listed by these security guards, including mishandling of mysterious powders, and sent to Congress.

Some of the problems listed were, inadequate training, ineffective equipment, lightly guarded entrances and other problems. WackenhutServices Inc. is the private company responsible for training guardsand supplying them with the necessary equipment.

Senator Ron Wyden said, "It would be ironic, to say the least, ifD.H.S. were unable to secure its own headquarters."
