Oversight Report Blasts Homeland Security for Failing on All Its Missions

By Steve Neavling

Homeland Security has failed on all five of its main missions, according to a scathing oversight report by U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, Fox News reports. 

“Ten years of oversight of the Department of Homeland Security finds that the Department still has a lot of work to do to strengthen our nation’s security,” Coburn said.  “Congress needs to review the Department’s mission and programs and refocus DHS on national priorities where DHS has a lead responsibility.”

One unanswered question, according to the report, is whether the $50 billion that Homeland Security spent in the past 11 years on counterterrorism made the country any safer.

The report also criticizes Homeland Security for failing to properly protect the borders and combat cyber-attacks.

Still, Coburn said the future is bright if Congress acts quickly to resolve the problems.

“I am confident that Secretary Jeh Johnson is leading the Department in the right direction,” Coburn said.  “One of the biggest challenges that Sec. Johnson and DHS face is Congress and its dysfunctional approach to setting priorities for the Department.  Congress needs to work with the Department to refocus its missions on national priorities and give Secretary Johnson the authority to lead and fix the Department.”
