It seems like DHS will go to any lengths to keep Americans in fear, even if that means reviving a useless color-coded ‘threat index chart’.

A recent AP story revealed, DHS spent $90K in taxpayer money to review whether they should bring back their chart.

The Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) hired by DHS, found their color-coded ‘threat index chart’ to be simplistic and misleading, noting that colors were a “disaster” for communicating terror threats.

The IDA identified other problems. A color index might lead reporters with an appetite for eye-catching headlines to produce misleading stories of an out-of-control border. And DHS relations with Congress could be further strained, with administration officials constantly having to defend their color choices.

In other words, the color-coded ‘threat index chart’ is a joke and can’t be defended.
