Chertoff: RFID program to be abandoned

UPI
Saturday, February 10, 2007  

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff Friday told a House committee hearing his department is dropping plans for RFID tags.

Chertoff told the Homeland Security Committee hearing on his department's budget a test of radio frequency identification tags was unsuccessful.

I think, yeah, we're abandoning it. I think it's not -- that's not going to be a solution for keeping would-be terrorists out of the United States, Chertoff said.

The secretary also acknowledged concerns about a survey released earlier this week that put the Department of Homeland Security at the bottom of the list of government departments for job satisfaction.

Chertoff blamed the morale problem on cramped quarters and lack of time for training.

So as we mature as a department, those issues will correct, Chertoff said.

Chertoff also disputed assertions the Transportation Security Administration has trouble retaining employees, blaming the high number of departures on turnover in leadership.
