Homeland Security: Turning citizens into suspects since 2003

The Bureaucrash blog cites a Washington Post article about “one of the largest construction projects in the Washington area since the Pentagon was built in the 1940s,” namely the Department of Homeland Security’s plan for new headquarters in D.C.  Priced at $3.4 billion, the facilities would house 14,000 of the goliath agency’s 200,000 employees.  Construction would begin next year, and last until 2016, a long term project which advocates claim will help support the impoverished section of the city in which the facility would be located, despite the fact that it will be secured by no less than two layers of protective fencing.  In the meantime, Homeland Security is hard at work making it more difficult for travelers to enter the country by requiring advance online registration.
