Fed. Buildings Flunk Terrorism Test

Homeland security doesn't look like such a high priority to the security guards at 10 federal buildings in four U.S. cities: A report by the Government Accountability Office set to be released on Wednesday reveals that undercover agents smuggled real bomb parts into all 10 buildings and went so far as to assemble the bombs in bathrooms. The agents captured a photo of a security guard sleeping on the job, and also reported an outrageous incident in which "a woman placed an infant in a carrier on an X-ray machine while retrieving identification." The careless guard on duty actually allowed the baby to pass through the machine. Expect major reforms for the Federal Protection Service, the organization in charge of security at the buildings.
