After millions of dollars are spent on the war on terror…

Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) speaks of the government’s inability to get things completed:

WE’RE AT WAR AGAINST TERRORISTS, and the Oklahoma City bombing case is still unimpressive (“FBI agents searched the Herington home on March 31. Officials said agents found blasting caps and other explosive materials, apparently related to the 1995 attack, buried in a crawl space that hadn’t been checked earlier.” Good work guys — missing explosives for ten years that had been hidden in a house they had already searched!). This makes me wonder if the agents looking for Al Qaeda sleeper cells might not need some additional resources — and some remedial education. But instead, the Justice Department is devoting additional resources to stepping up obscenity prosecutions?

Someone tell Gonzales that there’s a war on.

Personal note: That REALLY scares me. Why? As a taxpayer, we expect that we are paying top dollar for the best available protection from terrorism. Unfortunately, this type of news seems to point at the scenario of paying top dollar for mediocre to poor protection. Perhaps the GAO (Government Accountability Office) needs to get involved and stop the funding of these agencies that seem to have a hole in their pockets but keeps at the poor performance category.
