More FBI Computer Woes

Every so often I get the opportunity to speak or write about the FBI case management systems and its tale of unending failures. The saga continues.
The Oct. 21 Wall Street Journal story entitled “Audit Sees More FBI Computer Woes”, noted that the FBI “struggles with technology are expected to continue to eat up millions of dollars and still leave agents without a seamless electronic system to manage investigations.” Yikes. This issue has been going on for years and we have spent hundreds of millions. I've got an idea, could the FBI hire Kahn Consulting? Maybe we could help. But if we can’t, at least Kahn Consulting could benefit from this seemingly unending money pit. According the article the tech problems “have potential consequences for efforts to prevent terrorist attacks, [particularly when the domestic terrorist threat is growing]. The Sept. 11, 2001 attacks exposed poor information sharing by the FBI and other agencies. Is my recollection failing me or was that the reason we have Homeland Security. Yikes.

Are you kidding me.
