Hundreds of badges, credentials, cell phones and guns belonging to Department of Homeland Security employees have been lost or stolen in recent years — raising serious security concerns about the potential damage these missing items could do in the wrong hands.
Inventory reports, obtained by the news site Complete Colorado and shared with FoxNews.com, show that over 1,300 badges, 165 firearms and 589 cell phones were lost or stolen over the span of 31 months between 2012 and 2015.
Nothing like having the umbrella agency named for this Republic’s security not-so-secure. Makes one feel all warm, doesn’t it?
I remember back-in-the-day (pre-9/11) reading in Hoover’s FBI, if you lost your creds, you were fired. Obviously, times have changed.
