Janet blames Canada for 9/11 hijackers?



How the hell did that bimbo get her job???

The border for dummies

Can someone please tell us how U. S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano got her job? She appears to be about as knowledgeable about border issues as a late-night radio call-in yahoo.

In an interview broadcast Monday on the CBC, Ms. Napolitano attempted to justify her call for stricter border security on the premise that "suspected or known terrorists" have entered the U. S. across the Canadian border, including the perpetrators of the 9/11 attack.

All the 9/11 terrorists, of course, entered the United States directly from overseas. The notion that some arrived via Canada is a myth that briefly popped up in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, and was then quickly debunked.

Informed of her error, Ms. Napolitano blustered: "I can't talk to that. I can talk about the future. And here's the future. The future is we have borders."

Just what does that mean, exactly?

Just a few weeks ago, Ms. Napolitano equated Canada's border to Mexico's, suggesting they deserved the same treatment. Mexico is engulfed in a drug war that left more than 5,000 dead last year, and which is spawning a spillover kidnapping epidemic in Arizona. So many Mexicans enter the United States illegally that a multi-billion-dollar barrier has been built from Texas to California to keep them out.

In Canada, on the other hand, the main problem is congestion resulting from cross-border trade. Not quite the same thing, is it?

Ignoring the truth doesn't change reality... As much as you might wish it would.

I'd agree that we could do with a little better security/inquiry at all points of entry, but treating Canada similar to Mexico is like treating medical marijuana users the same as heroin pushers...

So incompetence in government is something that you do approve of then?

I thought you were anti-incompetence when Bush was the President.

Is this not the case now?

The people want to know!

^ Watch out Derek. It's John Candy in drag. Candian Bacon is probably a cult classic for her.
