WASHINGTON (AP) — Technical issues are delaying the completion of a multibillion-dollar high-tech fence intended to reduce illegal entry along the nation's southern border, the government said Thursday.
The first phase of the project involves building nine towers that are dotted along 28 miles of the Arizona-Mexico border, and bracket the Sasabe port of entry.
So the Bronze Age Egyptians were able to build The Great Pyramid of Giza using nothing but manpower and ropes, but a superpower in the Nuclear Age can't seem to build a fence...
Maybe someone should study some Roman engineering to see how it's done.
Sounds like the typical sort of thing we see contractors for the government do; come up with a winning bid, and then find ways to gouge and jack up the price later. Business as usual.
Just my opinion.
