The deployment also does not seem to square with remarks by Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano that in recent Congressional testimony that the border is more secure than it has ever been. “I say this again, as someone who has walked that border, ridden it, flown it and driven it,” Napolitano said. “I believe it is as secure as it ever has been.”
Then why the need to send 1200 troops and spend half a billion dollars? Does the right hand know what the left hand is doing in the Obama White House? Someone should ask Gibbs.
This move also does not square with the president’s desire for an amnesty bill. Amnesties only encourage more illegal entry.
I'll say it again, Obama is clueless. This is what the country gets for electing a guy with no experience. I believe it was Clinton who told Obama, the Presidentcy is not a job for on the job training.
Just think, Obama is the guy answering the phone at 3 in the morning.
