Well this is even better news. How is that we can respond to everything else in the world it seems, in a blink of an eye, but when it comes to OUR OWN SAFETY, we are not? There is something wrong with that picture. this is why I always say, when a Democrat gets elected, we become vulnerable. This is a good example of it.

The U.S. Justice Department is not "fully prepared" to respond to an attack with a weapon of mass destruction, according to a report released Tuesday by the department's inspector general.
"One of the greatest concerns is that a WMD may fall into the hands of terrorists or that terrorists will develop their own WMD. However, the Department of Justice has not implemented adequate WMD response plans."
Under a "National Response Framework" issued by the Department of Homeland Security in 2008, the Justice Department is responsible for coordinating federal law enforcement activities after a potential WMD attack and for ensuring public safety and security if state and local law enforcement are overwhelmed, the inspector general's office said.
But, according to the report, the Justice Department "is not prepared" to fulfill its role, failing to identify people to manage such obligations.
The BATF which is leading the effort, has not developed a catalog of law enforcement resources available in the case of a WMD incident, according to the inspector general's office.
