Washington Post journalists Dana Priest and William Arkin conducted a two-year investigation of the wasteful spending of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). It was published with the title Top Secret America on July 19, 2010. “Their investigation concludes that the security bureaucracy erected after the 9/11 attacks ‘has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.’ This investigation of Top Secret America was quite literal: the newspaper examined only the top-secret part of this massive infrastructure, because the work ‘classified at the secret level is too large to accurately track.’ ”
