The article argues that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has done little to protect the U.S. against terrorist attacks. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is criticized for wasting air travelers' time with intrusive screening, while most attempts at terrorism on airplanes have been stopped by other means. The waste of DHS funds on projects such as a one million dollar emergency operations center for the village of Poynette, Wisconsin is also condemned.
