How are terrorists kept out while heroin comes in?
Think terrorists are smart enough to pose as drug traffickers- then cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.
“…one vulnerability or gap anywhere across the globe has the ability to impact security thousands of miles away.”
Looks like some vulnerabilities and gaps are present here:
911 should have been a drug trafficker’s worst nightmare. The US Dept. of Homeland Security- a whole new federal department- was created to stop terrorists and prevent another 911.
Why hasn’t the US Department of Homeland Security been able to stop cocaine and heroin from crossing into the US?
Every domestic heroin bust is evidence that the US Dept. of Homeland Security is unable to prevent hardcore criminals from crossing into the US.

If the federal government has the crime fighting skills to wipe out all major terror strikes since 911- why wouldn’t they use those skills to shut down other categories of violent crimes?
War on terror crime fighting tactics, the surveillance society, fusion centers, drones, license plate scanners, Behavior Detection Officers, tracking cell phones, reading text messages- none of it appears to work to stop crimes like bank robbery or drug trafficking.
Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta travels to Bremerton to motivate the USS John C. Stennis crew prior to another War on Terror mission.
Mr. Secretary- what are your thoughts on the Post 911 National Security/War on Terror progress chart?
