Every once in a while a ray of hope shines out of Washington, DC. The Department of Homeland Security today officially cancelled the Boeing-built electronic border surveillance system, a decision that will avoid a projected $50 billion expenditure. The “fence” has been ineffective beginning with the first 2007 prototypes. Maybe Secretary Naplitano’s actions will inspire folks at the Defense Department to cancel at least some of their useless, costly projects.
