One of the few things that George Bush did that I really did not was to create the Department of Home Land Security.   This was in response to the fact that Federal Law Enforcement Agencies did not communicate with each other so the thought was make them one big agency.   So, bigger government again.   The bigger an entity the less it communicates and the right hand seldom knows what the left hand is doing.   A better solution would to create Liaisons from various agencies with each Agency and develop strict guidelines for sharing of information.

So, we end up with many of our Federal Law Enforcement under one Department and here are some of the results.

228 lost guns
1,889 lost badges
25 lost Secure Immigration Stamps  

This is topic that concerns me as I provide Security Officers to a Chemical Plant with a deep water port and my Officers and I have to have Transportation Worker Identification Card (TWIC).  I have to pay for these and we have to renew them every three years.   We have strict guide lines on who can enter the Docks Area and we are subject to heavy fines if we fail to carry these out.

I also know the difficulty of disciplining a Federal Employee and would not be surprised at the level of discipline issued or lack of, for the above infractions to those responsible for the loss of the above items. I suspect it is nothing compared to what you and I would face in the Private sector.  But you can bet your bippy that the smallest infraction by one of my people would bring down the rather of the Department of Homeland Security and result in serious fines and even the lost of my Agency License.

So knowing all this makes us sleep better at night knowing our Federal Law Enforcement Agencies are out there protecting us, even though some of them can't even protect their weapon or ID badge.
