DHS Withdraws Controversial Report

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) boss Janet Napolitano has ordered the now infamous report that implied, among other things, that our returning veteran soldiers were potential terrorists, be withdrawn:
"The wheels came off the wagon because the vetting process was not followed," Ms. Napolitano told the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday.

"The report is no longer out there," she said. "An employee sent it out without authorization."

Sorry, but I am not buying a word of that, particularly given that the report was "leaked" just ahead of the April 15th Tea Party protests that went on all over America.

And even though this report has been "withdrawn" and is slated to be re-written, the proverbial cat is now well out of the bag.

I find it not a little disturbing that those of us who stand in support of this nation's founding document are now officially considered to be extremists, subversives, and even potential terrorists, by our very own government.

I care not how this report is going to be massaged, tweaked and re-worded, as I fully expect the end result will be just as insulting as before.

Perhaps even more so.

Napolitano should be fired and packed off to Arizona. Tomorrow would be good. Yesterday would have been better.

I take it you don't like Janet Napolitano! I met the gov' at the senior center in Flagstaff five years ago. She has a great sense of humor!

ROFL! Yes, that she does.
