Why is DHS border protection office buying bagpipes?

America’s budget problems couldn’t stop the president’s star-studded Sequester Soul Show last night, and sequestration cuts don’t seem likely to stop the music at the Department of Homeland Security either. We’re still not sure why DHS needs all of that ammo, and now we’re really stumped. Roll Call’s Jonathan Strong is wondering too.

Seriously though, why is DHS buying bagpipes? fbo.gov/spg/DHS/USCS/P…

The DHS Customs and Border Protection Office requires bagpipes and drums for some reason. New bagpipes, too — none of those gray market bagpipes.

I like bagpipes, but really. Does DHS need them? fbo.gov/index?s=opport…
