Wouldn't that be easier, less expensive, and draw less attention to the place, and result in fewer tourists triggering a security response, than having the cammo dudes and high tech stuff right on the border?...

Perhaps you're looking at it from the standpoint of
friendly tourists and 'UFO chasers'. Not every challenge
to the perimeter would be as friendly. And I'm
not just talking terrorists or 'enemies'. Extreme
environmentalists, political 'right to know' groups
etc, as well as more serious threats, would always
require the higher level of security.

So even if they did have the friendly gate attendant
and informative signage, they would still require
the higher level of security down the road.
