A series of embarrassing incidents on federal property across the country, including the theft of a trailer of surveillance equipment from an FBI parking deck, is being blamed on budget cuts at the agency charged with securing federal grounds. "We're seeing the near collapse of the Federal Protective Service," said Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-District of Columbia, who leads the congressional subcommittee that oversees federal buildings. The service's budget and staff have been cut since it became part of the Department of Homeland Security in March 2003, according to the nonpartisan Government Accountability Guess this will get passed on to the taxpayers too! What do you think?

Now, I had a thought. Didn't this high-tech spy truck come with a LoJack unit or something to track it's location?

Well, I expect they have pretty cool stuff in an FBI spy truck. Odd. I wonder what the thieves plan on doing with it.
