    Members of Congress on Wednesday blasted "disturbing" and "outrageous" security failures in the nation's federal buildings after government investigators smuggled bomb-making materials past the police agency charged with protecting those buildings.

    The Government Accountability Office released a report detailing how investigators carried liquid bomb-making materials past security at 10 federal buildings in 10 cities -- a shocking exposure lawmakers said shows the country's vulnerability eight years after the attacks on the World Trade Center and 14 years after the bombing of a federal building in Oklahoma City.

    Sen. Joe Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, blamed the Federal Protective Service Security for failing to provide adequate security and proper training to its 13,000 security guards during a hearing Wednesday on Capitol Hill. The agency, which is responsible for providing security at about 9,000 federal buildings around the country, has 1,200 full-time employees and roughly 13,000 contract guards.

    The majority of Congress consists of self-serving bastards with more concern for their own personal well-being than anything else. With the radical direction our Country is going, they maybe feeling the peoples' anger and getting a little nervous. A little radical violence will have these cowards running for cover and putting forth all sorts of new legislation to try and protect their asses.
