    TSA has awarded a contract for nearly $57,000 to American Homeland Security Consulting Group, LLC, of Washington, DC, to supply about 1,400 pounds of RDX and ammonium nitrate explosives to be used in training programs for TSA’s explosive-sniffing dogs.
    As reported by Government Security News on August 8, TSA has said that the explosives are being procured to provide the participants in the National Canine Program “with a more realistic training aid and complement the current aids provided.”
    The agency indicated in its original solicitation that it planned to buy 700 pounds of A-5 Flake RDX explosives and 700 pounds of high density ammonium nitrate explosives.
    Art Gordon, the president and chief operating officer of American Homeland Security Consulting, was an assistant federal security director for law enforcement at the TSA from 2004 to 2007, according to his LinkedIn.com entry. “Art is also the Immediate Past President of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) and he served in that capacity for four years,” adds American Homeland Security Consulting on its own Website.
    The small business set-aside award for $56,994 was announced on August 14.
    Further information is available from Delisa Corbett, a contracting specialist, at 571-227-4025 or delisa.corbett@dhs.gov.

    No surprise. I bet if we had a list of former DHS employees and a list of non-retirement government payments received we would be surprised at the number of former employees with their hands in the till.

    So...uh...let me get this straight: The agency that claims that scawery tewowwists are everywhere, lying in wait to blow up Amerikans, using these high-tech, nitrate-based nasty explosives can't get enough of these explosives on the market to use for testing their sekwerity-theatre procedures, so they have to have them specially made. (Tell me if I'm wrong here.)


    Wait for it......

    Where the (expletive deleted) are the scawery tewowwists getting this (expletive deleted)???:confused:

    Maybe I'm just a dumb blonde, but I can't figure that out!:rolleyes:
