I complained when former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano was appointed to head up Homeland Security, by President Barack Obama, because she is not exactly friendly towards immigrants, but she is now in the headlines for a different reason. It turns out she is a complete idiot!
Here are a few excerpts from the Washington Times that explain exactly how Napolitano managed to stick both of her feet in her mouth:
Civil-liberties watchdogs within the Homeland Security Department (DHS) raised concerns about a security assessment of “rightwing extremism” but the report was released anyway, leading to the furor that Thursday had Secretary Janet Napolitano apologizing to veterans.
Ms. Napolitano appeared on several morning news shows in an effort to damp down criticism on both sides of the political aisle over the report, titled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” which states that veterans are likely recruits for use in attacks against the government.
“I know that some veterans groups were offended by the fact that veterans were mentioned in this assessment, so I apologize for that offense. It was certainly not intended,” Miss Napolitano told CNN’s “American Morning.”
So much for the sentiment that the Democrats support our troops! The war in Iraq is wrong, but saying that our returning veterans are going to take up arms and attack their fellow Americans is ridiculous.
Napolitano should resign immediately.
