Arizona to White House: Send us helicopters, recon drones

Unbowed by a raft of boycotts over her immigration policy, Arizona Gov. Janice Brewer has requested helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles from the White House to patrol the border region with Mexico.
Brewer, in a letter to President Obama, asked that the National Guard reallocate reconnaissance helicopters and robotic surveillance craft to the "border states" from other parts of the country.
The governor specifically asked for OH-58 Kiowa helicopters, used by the military for reconnaissance, noting that Arizona currently has only four of them "available for border missions."
"These helicopters are extremely valuable assets in supporting law enforcement efforts on the ground," she wrote. "The number available, though, is inadequate to provide the kind of support needed on the Arizona border."
The governor said that a fleet of eight to 10 Kiowa helicopters "would enable us to double our border coverage to 2,000 hours per year. To be effective, these additional aircraft must be equipped for day and night operations."
Her letter included a map showing the state-by-state allocation of Kiowa helicopters, as well as newer Lakota helicopters.

Doesn't sound like it's getting any better.
I’m liking this Governor more and more every day.
I like her too. She’s yanking Obama’s chain big time.
I’ll have two. Mostly the state is showing Obama for what he is on national security and immigration control.
I would think she would want more than a total of 8 or 10 helicopters - she said this would double the coverage to 2000 hours per year. That is only 5 1/2 hours per day.
I expect his response will be similar to Clinton’s response to General Garrison’s request for gunships and armored vehicles for Taskforce Ranger, Mogadishu, Somalia.
And when the stuff hits the fan, he’ll get one of his `yes-men’ to fall on their pencils. Napolitano, probably.
Short answer: No. Hussein is bent on destroying the country, he hates America and wants to rebuild it in his own warped vision of a Marxist Utopia.
