Color-Coded Terror Warning System to Be Scrapped

Just out of curiousity, can anyone tell me what the Department of Homeland Security actually does?

Seriously.

Has anyone seen DHS actually do anything other than spend random amounts of money on random things and periodically show up in the news?

Anyone?

I can understand the FBI. They seem to do some positive things. I can almost understand the ATF. Maybe. I cannot for the life of me understand DHS.

I’m just glad that the Federal Government is now spawining enduring bureaucratic orginizations that have essentially no purpose whatsoever except to exist. It’s like a giant marshmallow.

Does it do anything at all?

From MSNBC:

“Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is expected to announce tomorrow that the color-coded threat advisory system, launched after the 9/11 attacks but now more or less discarded, will be formally scrapped this spring.DHS has for the past several months moved away from the threat system. The threat level was not changed, for example, after the underwear bombing attempt on Christmas Day 2009, after the car bomb attempt last year in Times Square, or when package bombs were detected on cargo flights last fall.”
