The head of the Homeland Security agency responsible for a controversial report that suggested veterans were being recruited to commit terrorist acts in the U.S. is being replaced by a former FBI and CIA official.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced in a statement late Thursday afternoon that the White House intends to nominate Phillip Mudd as undersecretary for Intelligence and Analysis. Mr. Mudd is a 24-year career FBI official, who currently serves as the associate executive assistant director of the Bureau's national security branch.
He replaces Roger Mackin, who was appointed to the post in September by then-Secretary Michael Chertoff.
Ms. Napolitano also says she will appoint Bart R. Johnson as the principal deputy undersecretary. Mr. Johnson currently serves as director of homeland security and law enforcement in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

Yes it does, as governess nappy was good at that.
There's a problem right there.
nice try Janet
“He replaces Roger Mackin, who was appointed to the post in September by then-Secretary Michael Chertoff.”
It was a Chertoff appointment that wrote that piece of garbage? Or he wrote the template the leftists in the department ‘updated’?
Still not good enough in my book. Napolitano needs to go!
I called my Senators and Rep. today demanding they call for Naploitano to resign. Offices for both Senators said they were receiving a lot of negative feedback.
Obama’s fault. She makes him look less than wise. Let her blunder on for a while. Anyone he names will be just as bad.
Any relation to the infamous Doctor Mudd who helped the Lincoln conspirators?
It would somehow be appropriate, wouldn't it?
Or Major Mudd, the 1960's Boston TV kids show star.
Roger Mudd the TV anchor is a direct descendant of Samuel Mudd. So yes his name is “Mudd.”
DHS will no longer have respect nor credibility until that cow is gone.
Homeland Security and intelligence does not belong in a well constructed thought.
HER name is mudd.
Napolitano is the one who specifically and categorically reiterated that DHS will consider ALL conservatives and vets, no matter how incidental, as potential terrorists. It doesn’t matter who came up with the report - SHE ground it into America’s face slowly and deliberately a second time, to make the point stick as threateningly as possible.
So, Napalitano didn’t read the report before it was released? She ought to fire herself.
Proving the theory yet again that shi...uh, “pelosi” rolls downhill.
So, Napalitano didnt read the report before it was released?
Seems that NO ONE in Washington reads ANYTHING. I think they may need a refresher in ‘literacy’. That’s gubument ejumication for ya’.
“Seems that NO ONE in Washington reads ANYTHING. I think they may need a refresher in literacy. Thats gubument ejumication for ya.”
Everyone of those gubument idjits that didn’t read the porkulus bill should be pelosi-canned.
