Head of Homeland Insecurity

Can we please trade in Janet Napolitano?
She has a seriously distorted take on the source and extent of domestic terror threats. (Her eventual apology for the worst of that report does not change the fact that she clearly possesses bad instincts for the job.)
She thought the 911 attackers arrived here from Canada. (They flew here directly from Saudi Arabia.)
Now, as some use the word “pandemic” with reference to the potential course of the outbreak of swine flu in Mexico and the US declares a public health emergency over it, she has declined to test or monitor arrivals from Mexico, much less impose a travel ban. Wouldn’t this be a first line of defense, Madam Secretary? Not the only one, thanks to our elected officials lax enforcement of the border. But not to be omitted, either. Why such a passive approach to this potentially serious health threat?
A monkey would be preferable in the post. At least we’d have a fifty/fifty shot at a correct response to any given threat. This would be a considerable improvement over the batting average of the current occupant, who invariably makes the wrong call.

Monique, I know you are aware but others may not be of the ongoing petitions to get rid of Napolitano. All the Anchor Rising readers need do is google it.
And, I’m sure by now, most know about the lawsuit filed by the Thomas Moore Law Center and filed on behalf of Mike Savage and another person.
She has to go. Talk about a puppet idiot that makes Charlies McCarthy sound like Stephen Hawking.

On Friday John McCain also said, the
9/11 attackers came in from Canada.

They came from Saudi-Arbia, so we atacked Iraq??
