Safety still begins at home

Michelle Malkin, in the Washington Times, warns that “the euphoria over Saddam Hussein’s capture abroad must be tempered by the lingering reality of national security deficiencies here at home.” She relies, in part, on “a little-noticed report released this week by the federal homeland security commission [which] cautioned that anti-terrorism ‘momentum appears to have waned’ and efforts are often hampered by ‘the lack of a clear, articulated vision from the federal level.'”
Malkin points to deficiencies in a number of areas, most notably (and not surprisingly) immigration. The problems in that area include the Transit Without Visa program, which is being revived despite indications that al Qaeda may be planning to exploit it, and the ongoing unwillingness to vigorously police our borders.
