    U.S. security boss clarifies comments about border


    CTV.ca | U.S. security boss clarifies comments about border

    The U.S. Homeland Security chief has clarified earlier remarks that suggested the 9-11 terrorists entered the U.S. through Canada.

    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.

    In a release Tuesday night following the interview, she called Canada a "close ally and an important partner" and said she was simply misunderstood.

    As the media silence on the number of gaffes this administration is making, one can't help but wonder, where the hell did Obama get this woman? First they release a report that vets are susceptible to extremist groups now she insults Canada by suggesting its thier problem that say the millenium bomber came in through canada?


    Napolotano is an idiot, and she is Obama's idiot.

    She was chosen for the position because as governor of Arizona she was an immigration expert.

    Perhaps these are the reasons Obama appointed a "border czar" so Napolitano could focus her expertise on some real issues.

    Thus far Napolitano has been disappointing.

    It's a full time job keeping the VP out of sight.

    She was overgeneralizing... if she had said "some entered through Canada" she would have been correct. A few, if I recall, came through the Nova Scotia sea port and moved their way down into New York State. But you have to remember, this was back before the idea of widespread terrorism was really worrisome in the minds of many. No one could have pre-empted what happened... it was so strategically planned to take advantage of every vulnerability. Everyone, including Canadian and U.S. border security, was caught with their pants down.

    Still, her comments implied that it was mostly Canada's fault that U.S. security was lacking. She really made a lot of Canadians angry. I remember reading the article (from a Canadian news site) and felt a little bit wronged. Bad move on her part.

    Seems to me Napolitano is a perfect fit for the Pres Doofus (or is that Soros) administration.

    Clinton is the only one of the whole bunch with any clue and even she can't keep the Pres Doofus story about Pakistan straight from one day to the next.

    Its really a pretty sad period for the US.

    I guess... but they did come in through a Canadian seaport originally. Although, how could Canada have known who they were and what their plans were?

    Oh look..

    McCain defends Napolitano, insists 9/11 perpetrators came from Canada

    Arizona Senator John McCain is the latest high-profile politician to repeat the diehard American falsehood that the Sept. 11, 2001, attackers entered the United States through Canada.

    Just days after Janet Napolitano, the U.S. homeland security secretary, sparked a diplomatic kerfuffle by suggesting the perpetrators took a Canadian route to the U.S. eight years ago, McCain defended her by saying that, in fact, the former Arizona governor was correct.

    ...

    "As the 9/11 Commission reported in July 2004, all of the 9/11 terrorists arrived in the U.S. from outside North America. They flew to major U.S. airports. They entered the U.S. with documents issued to them by the U.S. government. No 9/11 terrorists came from Canada."
    I guess I was wrong. Maybe I was recalling reports from 2001 that claimed at the time that people came through Nova Scotia. I guess, in fact, Canada is innocent.
