Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday that Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and his fellow agents were not under orders to refrain from using lethal force in the gunbattle that led to Agent Terrys death in December. Testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Miss Napolitano said agents are allowed to use lethal force if you are under threat of serious injury or death. She said she herself has asked if the agents involved in the December shootout with bandits on the border in Arizona had their hands tied by orders, and she said the answer is absolutely not.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
It’s hard to believe that she’s stupid enough to believe that her lie won’t be discovered, and fairly soon.
The ugly Bull Dyke is lying.
Then why supply them with bean bag rounds at all? Sorry but this stinks to high heaven.
It’s sad and disgusting that a good man died because of the over zealous anti-gun agenda that is being pushed by certain people in our Government.
Even if true, you apparently need to get killed in order to prove in your subsequent murder trial that you believed you were under threat of death or serious bodily harm.
Sure, just like it was for Ramos and Campeon. We know what happens to our agents when they shoot at Mexicans.
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie-lie-lie. When defending your lefty lies, lie some more... fnckin’ b!tch... go to h3ll...
Isn’t she called janet from another planet?
When I was a kid, I was told that if you tell enough lies you go to jail... I had no idea you could be put in charge of an unconstitutional gov. department...let alone a freakin’ governor... I forsee gen. pop. Leavenworth ( thats a man, baby! )...
hmmm......so they were supposed to hold them off with just Bean bag guns.......while waiting for Lethal Homeland Security Air Support ????
she takes her orders from Obama. he is Pinnochobama.
What about Bush 43 and his administration’s campaign against Ramos and Compean on the word of a dirtbag illegal alien drug dealer?
Big Sis, YOU LIE!
What amazes me is that these adinistration sycophants are willing to support the Zero administration, to their own destruction.
Janet, do you really think that you will get a big time job after this display of total mediocrity?
Oh, sorry, I forgot that you might have a place in lobbyist, or government “analyst” with MSNBC
Considering how angry I am at Bush over the Patriot Act... Just add it to the pile.
I’m tired of our Government, be it controlled by the Democrats or Republicans, infringing on our Rights.
Google "operation gunrunner" and learn who the REAL thugs and criminals are, here.
Deserves a repeat!
Then why were they armed with beanbags?
That also was a disgrace & I will bet 5 bucks to a jelly donut that what happened to those two Border Patrol agents was in the back of the minds & raising doubts with the agents invovled in the shoot out that got agent Terry killed.
what poor Janet didn’t say was that the boarder patrol HAD to use non lethal methods before the real ones.
