The Death of the US-Mexico Virtual Fence

eldavojohn (898314) writes "A couple years ago it was announced that the Boeing built virtual fence 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 tear SBInet a new one causing DHS Chief Janet Napolitano to announce yesterday that funding for the project has been frozen. Sad that $1.4 billion had to be spent on this before the discovery that this poorly conceived idea would not work."
