Homeland Security Programs Scrutinized

Based on what the New York Times calls her "practical experiences as a border-state governor," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano "is re-evaluating the largest federal program for testing the country’s ability to respond to terrorist attacks, one of several Bush administration initiatives she has ordered to come under review." She has also ordered a review of several other programs, such as "cybersecurity, a strategy for protecting the border with Canada, and the vulnerability of power plants and other critical infrastructure." Previously, President Obama ordered an immediate, 60-day review of the U.S. government's cyber-security plans, programs, and activities.

Update: Here's a different take on Napolitano's practical experience.
