DHS contracts slammed in new report

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is beset by "mismanagement, grossly excessive spending, criminal conduct and shady no-bid contracts," says a report.

The report, "Homeland Security for Sale," was published last week by the non-profit watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

It recaps government and news media investigations into departmental contracts and programs worth billions of dollars -- including the Coast Guard's troubled Deepwater modernization program and U.S. Customs and Border Protection's virtual border fence called SBINet, or Secure Border Initiative more.
