Let's get rid of this huge, worthless drain on our budget.
From Chuck Shepherds News of the Weird
-- One of the principal recommendations following the Sept. 11 attacks was that emergency and rescue personnel have one secure radio frequency on which all agencies that were merged into the Department of Homeland Security could communicate. In November, the department's inspector general revealed that, despite $430 million allotted to build and operate the frequency in the last nine years, it remains almost useless to DHS' 123,000 employees. The report surveyed 479 workers, but found only one who knew how to find the frequency, and 72 percent did not even know one existed (and half the department's radios couldn't have accessed it even if employees knew where to look).[ProPublica.org, 11-21-2012]

Maybe Obama can appoint a radio frequency tsar or czar to help educate these poor workers.
