Daily Dissent: It took four years for Port Security to start?

Keeping Us Safe
It took four years for this to start?

U.S. ports are preparing for catastrophic terrorism in a major new program of security drills that began last week in the San Francisco Bay area and continues next week in Baltimore. The federal Port Security Training Exercises Program (PortSTEP) brings together government and private-sector officials responsible for maritime transportation and commerce, emergency response and land transit in 40 port districts around the United States. Officials participate in fictitious incident scenarios intended to reflect the terrorist threat environment.

Better late than never... But only because we've been fortunate enough to have not had an attack. Four years?
