GAO Report on the Federal Air Marshal Service

The report ("AVIATION SECURITY: Federal Air Marshal Service Could Benefit from Improved Planning and Controls") was released by the GAO in draft form to DHS on November 7, 2005.

DHS replied that it agreed with the findings and recommendations in the report.

Rigoberto Alpizar was shot dead by the FAMS in Miami, Florida, on December 7, 2005.

DHS stated in an internal report that "...although witness statements contain conflicting information, none of those interrogated following the incident collaborate any utterance by the suspect that he either possessed, or intended to detonate, an explosive device."

Way to go, boys...he was coming home from a friggin' mission trip.
