Can't even monitor THEMSELVES...

Should the United States be concerned when the Department of Homeland Security cannot even protect American children from their own employees?

Hailey, Idaho (April 12, 2006):
Employee of Transportation Security Administration (part of Homeland Security) was arrested for 2nd degree kidnapping after an incident with a 10 year old boy. He was found with several birthdates and SSNs.

Homeland Security official arrested in pedophile sting The deputy press secretary for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security was arrested Tuesday for using the Internet to seduce what he thought was a teenage girl, authorities said. Brian J. Doyle, 55, was arrested at his residence in Maryland on charges of use of a computer to seduce a child and transmission of harmful material to a minor. The charges were issued out of Polk County, Fla." (04/05/06)

How about that federal agent with the Department of Homeland Security who was busted on Dateline: Predator III?

Let me see if I understand... this is the department who we trust to recognize what constitutes a "terrorist", but we don't expect them to do background checks or other security clearance procedures for their own employees?

Yeah, I feel safer now...
