The Danger Room reports on the nomination of Tara O'Toole as DHS under secretary for science and technology:

"This is a disastrous nomination. O'Toole supported every flawed decision and counterproductive policy on biodefense, biosafety, and biosecurity during the Bush Administration," Rutgers University microbiologist and homeland security policy critic Richard Ebright tells Danger Room. "O'Toole is as out of touch with reality, and as paranoiac, as former Vice President Cheney. It would be hard to think of a person less well suited for the position."
