The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is a cabinet department of the U.S. Government, created in response to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against the U.S. In fiscal year 2011, DHS, was allocated a budget of $ 98.8 Billion and spent $ 66.4 Billion.
Recently, DHS has bought thousands of armored assault vehicles and millions and millions of rounds of ammunition. DHS has purchased mainly hollow point rounds that are significantly more expensive than the full metal jacket (FMJ) rounds used by the military. Hollow point rounds are illegal to use in war because they impact the human body more severely than FMJ rounds. In April, 2012, ammunition manufacturer ATK announced that it had been awarded a purchase order from DHS for 450 Million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammunition.
In the beginning DHS stated that their organization was not purchasing ammunition and that the contracts were fictional. When that was exposed as a lie, DHS stated that they bought all of that ammo to save Americans money !
Sanityandsense.com believes that DHS is a bureaucracy that is totally ineffective and should be immediately abolished. Also, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency should be the supreme commander of intelligence information and should be answerable only to the U.S. Congress and the President. DHS is a group of amateurs that does the U.S. more harm than good. DHS was created on November 25, 2002, by the dimwitted buffoon, President George Bush (43). Sanityandsense.com believes it is clearly in the best interests of the American People to abolish this worthless governmental agency and allow our CIA and FBI and NSA to operate without interference.
