On Wednesday, Chertoff played down the reports of border incursions by the Mexican military. He suggested many of the incursions could have been mistakes, blaming bad navigation by military personnel or attributing the incursions to criminals dressed in military garb.

Either Chertoff is an incompetent moron or he is a liar. Any speculation?

My guess is he's a liar. He's putting forth the party line that Bush wants out there. If the country got wind of some of what was really happening, we'd be screaming even more loudly for some form of border security.

Chertoff is just George W. Bush's willing stooge.

To try and place the blame anywhere else is willful denial.

"blaming bad navigation"

Bad navigation my ass! There is damn river there and the rest of the border has a fence except where the illegals have cut it down.

Neither. He's doing exactly what his boss tells him to do. Which is nothing.

Chertoff may be incompetent but he is certainly a liar.

Re: " Either Chertoff is an incompetent moron or he is a liar. Any speculation?"

Yup;

Both.

He's demonstrated the former with the recent hurricaine debacle, and the latter by his covering for the Mexican invaders.

For that I think he is pushing the envelope of treason, FWIW.

He's no better than that flatulance inflated gasbag / stuffed suit bloviating clueless bureaucrat and his crayola crayon panic alarm chart that he replaced, IMHO.

Can we expect any better from this administration?

Cheer up; it's better than the system we'd have under Hanoi Kerry, we might suppose.

Chertoff isn't a fool. He's actually a VERY sharp guy.

My guess is he's taking his walking orders and talking orders from somebody above him - like Alberto or Carl or even George, or maybe all of them.

Too bad Poncho Villa wasn't born a century later. He would have had a cakewalk invading the U.S. with this useless bunch in Washington overseeing things.

Boy could we use Blackjack Pershing now. Or, better, Winfield Scott and Robert E. Lee.

In my opinion Chertoff is both an incompetent moron and a liar. One is not exclusive of the other.

Maybe both. Or he simply does not like this country.
