The time has come for real change at DHS.
Secretary Janet Napolitano went to Capitol Hill this week to discuss the arms fiasco along the Mexican Border with Congressional committees. in effect, she was reporting that no real review of the whole matter had occured in DHS; a few 'sacrificial lambs' (primarily those that spoke to committees while DHS and Justice were stonewalling) were fired or resigned; but no real action had been taken to stop these transactions. In fact, both Holder, the Attorney General, and his US Attorney in Arizona tried to make the case these were good investigations (Of course, Holder later denied he knew anything and the White House was quick to say he 'mis-spoke' earlier). What trash for senior Federal officials.
The time has come to stop dangerous actions that bear no fruit, and start firing those who essentially commit illegal actions instead of supporting them. While I recognize that the Mexican drug trade needs to be curbed, you don't do it in a sane sociaety by providng them the guns to defend themselves.
