US border security

According to Scott Loftesness’s uncommentable blog, the US plan to spend $15 billion “that will construct a set of virtual borders around the US and track foreign visitors. Accenture, Computer Sciences and Lockheed Martin are the three companies in the final bidding process.”
Forgetting for a moment that a project with this scope is practically doomed to fail, I wonder if the assumptions are correct: the focus is on foreign visitors with Visas.

Again, I recommend making one single check before you spend $15 billion: would this have helped preventing the 9/11 attacks?
