DHS is a toothless organization. Chertoff has to earn his pay somehow,

Bend over, folks, and pull your pants down, if you aren't already sore
back there.

Your agency couldn't find its collective bureaucratic ass with both
hands; you are not competent enough to detect terrorists.

Other types of crime are perpetrated using the Internet too. Let's
just switch the stupid thing off, eh?

Chertoff needs a clue implant.

And woe be unto ISPs that have a backbone and refuse to cooperate.
