Interview with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano: 'Away From the Politics of Fear' - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International'Away From the Politics of Fear'
Janet Napolitano, 51, is President Obama's new Homeland Security Secretary. She spoke with SPIEGEL about immigration, the continued threat of terrorism and the changing tone in Washington.
SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?
Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.
That is our head of Homeland SECURITY...afraid to call a Terrorist a Terrorist because that may cause fear.
Are you kidding me?
My lack of confidence in the Obama administration in regards to the WAR has now reached the point of no return. They can't even call the ENEMY the ENEMY!
We are fighting Radical Islamic Terrorists in an war in which they will DIE to win...and these jokes cannot even handle calling them what they are.
Pure PC driven idiocy
She should be fired. No matter what her credential may be she has no business in her current position.
Where do they find these jokes?
