National Asset Database flawed

The Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security released a report entitled "Progress in Developing the National Asset Database." This report examines the creation of the National Asset Database which will list critical places that may be targets of terrorism. On page 11 of this report you can read a list of some of the "out-of-place assets," some examples are the mall at Sears, Trees of Mystery, Auto Shop, just to name a few. For an analysis of this report, check out the New York Times' article "Come One, Come All, Join the Terror Target List."
