At least we know when to cut our losses. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has canceled the controversial “virtual border fence,” deeming the high-cost and over-schedule program to be too ineffective to justify the $1 billion it has already cost taxpayers.

The Border Patrol is already more staffed than it has been in its 86-year history, and Napolitano said, the border would be secured through mobile and tower-based surveillance, drones and thermal-imaging devices.
