Jane asks a very good question:
If the State Department's Passport Office can't process 12.1 million passports applications (by AMERICAN CITIZENS) last year in a speedy manner, thereby admitting defeat and suspending new rules in place to secure our borders, how can strangers who can't speak the language, using FAKE DOCUMENTS expect to be processed for their "background checks" IN ONE DAY?
Politicians in Washington simply do not care what happens after they pass these outrageously convoluted bills. If they don't work out in the real world it's always somebody else's fault. Kate O'Beirne and Richard Lowry writing for National Review, May 22, 2006 (the best link for the quote is here):
When DHS's dysfunction played into the chaotic response to Hurricane Katrina, Congress turned around and excoriated the people in charge of the unmanageable department it itself had created. Being in Congress means never having to own up to your own errors when you can browbeat other people over them during televised hearings instead. Blame always rolls off Capitol Hill onto someone else. (my emphasis)
Flaming defeat for flaming idiots. And so it goes.
As usual, Jane hits the nail on the head.
