Sign "O" the Times

Things are not good at DHS:

Over the past four years, employees have left DHS at a rate nearly twice as fast as the federal government overall, and the trend is accelerating, according to a review of a federal database.

The departures are a result of what employees widely describe as a dysfunctional work environment, abysmal morale and the lure of private security companies paying top dollar that have proliferated in Washington since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The creepiness of “Homeland Security” aside (see VodkaPundit circa 2002), I see this story as yet another sign of executive incompetence by a White House far more skilled at agitating than administrating.

I would also like to emphasize that the story headline states that the problems at DHS make it more difficult for the agency to deal with “evolving threats,” and our threats lately are nothing if rapidly evolving.
