The Death of the US-Mexico Virtual Fence

eldavojohn writes “A couple of years ago it was announced that the Boeing-built virtual fence at the US-Mexico border didn’t work. Started in 2006, SBInet has been labeled a miserable failure and finally halted. A soon-to-be-released GAO report is expected to be overwhelmingly critical of SBInet, causing DHS Chief Janet Napolitano to announce yesterday that funding for the project has been frozen. It’s sad that $1.4 billion had to be spent on the project before the discovery that this poorly conceived idea would not work.”
