Chertoff: We're "backsliding" on homeland security

Hey, look! Someone got DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff a clue for Christmas. A year after he crusaded for the McCain-Bush-Kennedy-Grahamnesty bill and showed more concern for illegal alien lettuce pickers than broken borders and immigration chaos, he is finally coming around to the view that maybe, just maybe, we’re not taking homeland security seriously enough. Seriously:

From weak border controls to the risk of chemical bombs, the United States could be backsliding on national security since the Sept. 11 attacks, Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff said on Wednesday.

“A couple of years after 9/11 it would not have seemed conceivable that a ‘business as usual’ mentality could creep back into our public mind-set. It has begun to return,” Chertoff told a forum at Harvard University.

“I’m concerned that we are beginning to backslide,” he said, citing several areas where the United States has faced trouble while seeking to get tougher on security after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Beginning to backslide?”

“Business as usual?”

Chertoff, meet a full-length mirror.
