Idiot (Janet reno-wanna be) Napolitano Blames Canada For 9-11 Attack

Napolitano's comments about Canada's border sparks diplomatic kerfuffle News

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano made the comments during a media interview earlier this week, much to the chagrin of Canadians on both sides of the border.

"Unfortunately, misconceptions arise on something as fundamental as where the 9-11 terrorists came from," said Michael Wilson, Canada's ambassador in Washington.
"As the 9-11 commission reported in 2004, all of the 9-11 terrorists arrived in the United States from outside North America. They flew to major U.S. airports. They entered the U.S. with documents issued by the United States government and no 9-11 terrorists came from Canada."

Later, Napolitano's staff attempted to tamp down the controversy by blaming the comments on a simple misunderstanding, said Wilson, who was the keynote speaker at the Border Trade Alliance meeting in Washington Tuesday.

"Her comment from her people is that she misunderstood," Wilson said, adding that he was planning a personal meeting with Napolitano in the near future.

The furor began when Napolitano was asked to clarify statements she had made about equal treatment for the Mexican and Canadian borders, despite the fact that a flood of illegal immigrants and a massive drug war are two serious issues on the southern border.

"Yes, Canada is not Mexico, it doesn't have a drug war going on, it didn't have 6,000 homicides that were drug-related last year," she said.
"Nonetheless, to the extent that terrorists have come into our country or suspected or known terrorists have entered our country across a border, it's been across the Canadian border. There are real issues there."

When asked if she was referring to the 9-11 terrorists, Napolitano added: "Not just those but others as well."

On Tuesday afternoon, RCMP Commissioner William Elliot expressed frustration with the comments during an interview on CTV's Power Play.

"I was somewhat surprised and disappointed," he said, adding he hopes the misconception has been cleared up.
"I understand and am happy to hear that she has issued a statement acknowledging that that didn't happen."

But Thomas d'Aquino, president of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, decried Napolitano's comments on Tuesday.

"I am a longstanding friend and ally of the United States, but sometimes failures in our two-way dialogue cause me to shake my head in sadness and dismay," he said in a press release.
"The claim that some of the 9/11 terrorists entered the United States from Canada is, quite simply, a myth - an urban legend that began with a handful of erroneous media reports in the days following the terrorist strikes."

Wild Thing's comment.......

This woman (???) is a total idiot for starters.

Diversion away from the real danger-—the Mexican border. She’s a buffoon of the highest order. Every time I see a head shot of Nappy, I think of Janet Reno and the Waco massacre shown live on CNN. These two were separated at birth.

I didn't think it was possible for a human to become more stupid on a daily basis, but the obammy administration is proving not only that it's possible but it's required. OMG, it's only been about a hundred days.... We are so screwed!!!

So far, I've not seen one (1) competent person in the O'Vomit clusterfuck. Can we IMPEACH him yet?

First she went after the men and women defending this country and now she's slamming the Canadians. Canada have always been our good neighbors to the North.

Crooks, liars, muzzies, commies and idiots. The Obama administration is complete now.

In Canada one thing you don't want to do is piss off the Mounty's (RCMP) and she has managed to do just that with her stupendous incompentance.

She said, the Terrorists for 9-11 came in through the Canadian border. This was disproven 8 years ago, where has this idiot been. The former Governor of Arizona should know at least the basics about what it is to control a border, although she never lifted a finger to do thing one in securing the border. Yet this is who 'the Soutpiel' picks for his Department of Homeland Security chief.

In other words it would be as helpful not to fill the position at all for all the good she is doing this country in keeping it secure.

My gosh, I've raised hogs which are infinitely smarter than her.

She needs to lay off of the dope (which she's probably getting from her eses* in cartel). Either she is completely braindead and a danger to national security or this most recent idiocy is just a ruse in them planning something far more sinister. Maybe both. I do like how you point out the Invasion of Waco. I believe that she and/or holder are capable of much worse.

*Ese is spanish slang for "Homeboy". It's used quite frequently among young latinos. It is also used by latino gangbangers such as: MS-13, Latin Kings, etc.

P.S. These gangs (particularly MS-13) come from places like Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador they come in right over the U.S. Border and they have cells all over the United States. Maybe napolitano should be adressing that.

cuchieddie (Known Infidel), I am all for
ikmpeaching him right now. Kick him out
make him beg for a job, oh wait he can
go back to community organizer for
ACORN. And don't let him near a government
office ever again.
Better yet put him in prison for treason.

BobF., your right, who the heck will she
make an enemy next. She is not out of
there yet so she still has time to keep
offending more people, more countries.

Tom, yes, Soros must be so happy. This is
all what he wanted and dreamed of.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 23, 2009 01:45 AM

Mark, thanks for all of that. I bet
thrilled that she is out of there.

You are so right about the Mounty's. I bet
they are really ticked off.
