The GAO is your friend
If there's one piece of the federal government I love, it's the Government Accountability Office. If you're not signed up for their daily email, let me tell you it's one that's worth adding to your daily quota. Today, three great reports came through looking at transportation security. I won't thoroughly summarize them all here, but Cathleen A. Berrick, director, homeland security and justice, is very frank about where we stand with aviation and surface transportation security in general and then more specifically with commercial aviation. Then, Stephen L. Caldwell, director, homeland security and justice, talks about progress on the SAFE Port Act, one year out. If you're looking for information about homeland security that's completely devoid of political posturing, this is where to look.
