A federal program aimed at securing potentially dangerous chemicals is now in jeopardy after being beset by a series of deep-seated problems, including wasteful spending and a largely unqualified workforce that lacks "professionalism," according to a scathing internal Department of Homeland Security report obtained exclusively by Fox News.
In 2007, Congress established the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards program, which directs DHS to collect and review information from U.S. chemical facilities to determine whether they present a security risk. It is overseen by the Infrastructure Security Compliance Division -- or ISCD.

if we got rid of "wasteful spending and a largely unqualified workforce that lacks "professionalism," we'd have to get rid of 99% of our Congresscritters.

Since Islam and the Taliban have been excluded as elements of terror, DHS has nothing to work on anyway...
Might as well shut them down before they start knocking on FReeper doors....

S'ok. Lists work 2 ways, just like tracers. ;)
Let those unprofessional perverts pull down the pants of more American old ladies at the airports. That will make the “stupid” Americans think they are secure!
Sounds like a complete waste of taxpayer money, for a bunch of lazy govt workers...so clearly the budget will be increased and more people will be hired into positions they can never be fired from.
