Is the DHS is taking the “it takes one to know one” approach when it comes to hiring employees to spot potential terrorists?

At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”

“Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,” Lynch told Boston Public Radio.

“The [former DHS] director had to resign because of that,” he said.

Anybody done a tally of how many people working at the State Dept. or White House are on the watch list (or should be)?

The only way to make the Obama administration take fast action would be to tell them how many DHS employees are members of the NRA.

Update:

Those 72 apparently are working in agencies under DHS purview but not the DHS directly, such as the TSA — which kind of makes it even more concerning.
