Napolitano Scolds Reporter for Airing Complaints of Dead Border Agent's Family
Foxnews.com ^ | December 23, 2010 | Fox News

Posted on 12/23/2010 11:30:28 AM PST by inflorida

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, leaving the funeral of a murdered Border Patrol agent Wednesday, scolded a reporter for asking her to address the victim's family's concerns that not enough is being done to secure the southern border.

The family of agent Brian Terry had complained that Napolitano had offered them "empty words" when she called to express her condolences. Terry's father, Kent Terry, in an interview with ABC affiliate KGUN, said he told Napolitano to "wake your man up in the White House," to which she replied that he's done more in two years than any president.

Napolitano attended the Detroit funeral Wednesday where she vowed "swift justice" for Terry's killers. But asked about the family's concerns outside the service, Napolitano said "now is not the time to talk about all that has been done."

She said more agents and technology are on the border than ever before, but told the KGUN reporter it's time to remember the fallen agent and not start picking fights.

She is as arrogant as her puke of a boss. And equally unqualified for then job she is in. Neither Napolitano or Obama should be anywhere near a public service job.

And those are her GOOD qualities.

But, seriously, how can she even show her face in front of this family, when the Feds are doing all they can to keep our borders porous? The DoJ goes after Arizona for trying to secure their borders and now an agent is dead. That’s all you need to know.

All it is gonna take is for someone to publicly (meaning, in front of the press) tell these administrators that are full of $4it.

The foundation will begin crumbling.

Yes she is. And she appears to have been carefully groomed for her current position. I know what her official CV says but does anyone have any insight into her unofficial background in radical politics, especially any possible involvement with subversive Soros-backed groups?

Napolitano’s policies—and those of her phony boss—got the man killed, and she has the nerve to complain that someone said so? I pray that 2012 brings us something better.

If I were President, I would have fired her long ago. I believe that many others feel the same way.

It seems that party officials are running amuck, saying and doing whatever they want to.

I am becoming convinced on a daily basis that 0bama has completely lost control of his henchmen and women.

Napolitano is good at empty words. When she was Az’s Att. Gen. she represented AZ in a USSC case. She sent an apology that she “was busy” and couldn’t be there to go over the details with the victim’s daughter. Which was fine with the daughter. It was obvious it was just another stepping stone to Janet. I know she most likely doesn’t remember, but I do.

Nipple-atano stands for everything reprehensible with the thugocracy currently in power. Honest reporters and commentators should directly question every single move and movement and NEVER let her off the hook.

She’s drunk with power and her “enemies list” would make Heinrich Himmler feel positively inadequate.

She may be the greatest single threat to liberty today.

Nappy said the Agents and others told here differently and were not scolding her like the family.

True, . .to an extent. She met the Agents unit and had a private muster with them and other Agents. They HAMMERED her over the policy of catch and release, not prosecuting drug smugglers unless they were caught with over 500-lbs of dope, and most importantly, arming Terry and his unit with bean-bag rounds in their shotguns.

Yes, bean-bag rounds.

They were working this area where bandits that were raping and robbing from the cartels (tells you how violent the bandits were), but yet, Nappy and her minions in DC directed less-than-lethal rounds be used first, you know, so no mexican bandits would be killed.

Nappy was scolded all the way through the private muster/meeting.

Do not mess with a Democrat administration.

Pair Jailed For Remark To Clinton

First arrests and prosecutions then years of IRS audits . . . .

Father to DHS head: "wake your man up in the White House,"

No arrest in this case.. so far. IRS audits to follow, breaking story . . . .

BTW I disagree with the Trib employee that what Mrs. Mendoza said was a vulgarity.. it merely means that President Clinton was incompetent. But hey! the Trib employee is probably a Clinton butt boy -- now that's a vulgarity!

is there anywhere at all these reports of bean-bag rounds have been substantiated or verified, I would like to start to get the word out about this, but there is always so much hearsay and 3rd hand info after an incident like this, I hesitate.

Any police reports or patrol or reports or something?

Napolitano has a lot of nerve to answer a grieving father’s concern about a do nothing president with a political talking point... that is base... do any of these people have any soul inside them at all? My God.

Reminiscent of when Monica-lover had his butt chewed out by the father of Shugart or Gordon during a private session before the award of the CMOH. Only the Brit papers covered that, but seems the reporter in this case has bigger cajones than your run of the mill media scammer.
