(Worthy News) - At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”

“Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,” Lynch told Boston Public Radio. [ Source ]

  1. How does this happen? Doesn't Homeland Security do their own background checks? Shouldn't these people while applying for a job immediately be singled out for investigation for trying to apply for a government security position?

  2. Are they still working there and are we, (American Taxpayers) still paying their wages? TThe report should have said There use to be “72 DHS Employees on Terrorist Watch List”, they have since been terminated.
