Radioactive Material Brought into the U.S.
As reported by Jim Kouri, VP National Assn of Chiefs of Police today, the Covert Operations Report claims: "In three states, the proximity of the road to the border allowed investigators to cross undetected, successfully simulating the cross-border movement of radioactive materials or other contraband into the United States from Canada."
"In the past, officials from the Government Accountability Office testified before members of the U,S. Congress on three separate occasions in order to describe security vulnerabilities that terrorists could exploit to enter the country. Yet, even with reports of border security deficiencies, President Barack Obama cut the number of Border Patrol agents.
"According to a report obtained by the Terrorism Committee of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, the GAO's first two testimonies focused on covert testing at ports of entry -- the air, sea, and land locations where international travelers can legally enter the United States."

Experts are saying that the ease of entry into the U.S. is the most pressing threat to national security. Obviously, this only emphasizes the fact that our borders are not secure. With the increase of terrorist activity here at home, now is not the time to cut the number of our Border Patrol agents!
