Inquirer: A Shared Mission

Philadelphia Inquirer implores bipartisan security.

On Thursday, the Senate overcame an amendment frenzy to improve port and rail security. Before session's end, Congress is poised to safeguard chemical plants. Progress is possible, but only if leaders stop the kind of political sniping typified Tuesday by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.): "Let's see if they vote against this." Partisan threats won't improve safety.

Security is an ongoing challenge as threats evolve. America needs a clear - and shared - protective mission.
