While speaking at the National Press Club, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that "the key question" is to make sure that the mistakes made "never happen again."

Why the rush to comment, Janet? It’s only been 14 months since Brian Terry’s death.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The best way to make sure this doesn't happen again is to indict Eric Holder and all the other Obama Administration criminals who were involved in this.
Is Napolitano tossing Holder under the bus?
Hillary is giving it a pass and bowing out.
The State Dept has major dirt on the Justice dept.
Holder and Obama are guilty as sin.
Nappingtotallyano`s whole speech was full of crap.
No it was part of the plan. The plan from 1600 Penn. Ave. to impose new gun controls because of the out of control trafficking along the Southern Border. But they did not expect to get caught cooking the books by doing the smuggling themselves.
Multi-Agency Coordination means plan from TOP.
THAT is where the investigation must go. To the TOP.
Next time they won't make the mistakes of not destroying the evidence and leaving live witnesses.
It was an intentional effort to undermine support for the 2nd Amendment. Heads need to roll. Well, at the least, jack booted thugs need to do hard time.
Holder and the ATF run a crazy program that circumvents the State dept on export of arms.
They never asked the state dept for approval.(they broke the law)
Then they got like 300 people dead, and all the while it was just to set a scenario to make some law abiding citizen in Tx look bad.
Holder should be in the Federal Pen
“”the key question” is to make sure that the mistakes made “never happen again.”
...the key QUESTION? Does Napolitano speak English? Could she have meant the key GOAL? ... or the key CHALLENGE? ...etc...
Mistakes? (an amazingly inappropriate word in this situation)
This is the most corrupt and INEPT administration I can remember.
“Holder should be in the Federal Pen”
THIS may guarantee Holder’s imprisonment:
He is first on the list.
Lisa Jackson is pulling a strong second
“Serious mistakes were made” and everyone is in CYA mode.
I know you have the ping list for this topic and would like to be added.
Please, just shut up and go away.
One of the mistakes was electing a crook like Obama and letting him hire another crook such as holder, and letting Obama hire crooked Janet Napolitano.
When John Kyl announced he would not seek re-election, ole fat Janet called home. I guess the message was, Janet, don’t call home and it will probably be safer not to call Arizona home.
The people of Arizona don’t like you.

Worse Than Gunwalker? State Dept. Allegedly Sold Guns to Zetas
Phil Jordan, a former CIA operative and one-time leader of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administrations El Paso Intelligence Center, claims that the Obama administration is running guns to the violent Zetas cartel through the direct commercial sale of military grade weapons:
Jordan, who served as director of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administrations El Paso Intelligence Center in 1995, said the Zetas have shipped large amounts of weapons purchased in the Dallas area through El Paso.
Theyve found anti-aircraft weapons and hand grenades from the Vietnam War era, Plumlee said. Other weapons found include grenade launchers, assault rifles, handguns and military gear including night-vision goggles and body armor.
More about State Department involvement...
has sources claiming Obamas man in the State Department, (former) Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg, was the State Department operative who helped Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and the Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General David Ogden formulate the strategy that led to the tactics used in Operation Fast and Furious.
A little more than two years later, it was announced that Steinberg's time in the Obama State Department was over. From the New York Times, 30 March 2011:
Mrs. Clinton heaped praise on Mr. Steinberg, describing him as an indispensable partner. On every foreign policy challenge, big and small, he has helped formulate our policy and oversee its execution, she wrote. Mr. Steinberg, she said, played Oscar to Jack Lews Felix, referring to Jacob J. Lew, her other deputy, who left earlier this year to become Mr. Obamas budget director.
Want to read even more about State Dept. involvement? ...
All Eric Holder did was lie to the Congress as to what he knew of Zer0's stratagem to illegally sell automatic weapons to Mexican drug smugglers in order to demonize American firearms dealers and gun owners.
Holder doesn't stray far from Berry, either in his actions or in his world-view.
A host of federal agencies - including the ATF, FBI, IRS, ICE, DEA and top officials at DHS - were all in the loop at various levels, as was the White House.
Considering the level of stupidity on display at DoJ-ATF, they might want to consider an insanity defense.
Congress should (but never will) impeach the Department heads involved and depending on his involvement take impeachment action against the President himself. Instead, he's running for re-election.
The piss-stream media ignores the gangster government's corruption on a daily basis now. Sad, real sad. Nothing to see here, folks, just move along. Ignore the dead bodies.
Have another muffin Eric.
My friend in Europe has called the US Government as it stands, the quisling government. Top to bottom. I think he is right.
Thank you, azishot. This has gone way beyond insane. This administration’s propaganda machine can’t crank it out fast enough. I think these people MUST take some kind of drugs before they face an audience or cameras. No one could lie like this consistently with a straight face.
“Napolitano said that ‘the key question’ is to make sure that the mistakes made “never happen again.’”
>Is Napolitano tossing Holder under the bus?
No. She is saying that next time they won’t get caught.
It comes natural with liberals.
They even start the day by lying to themselves.
Serious mistakes to one of Great Leader’s cabinet is criminal behavior and RICO (yes, I know that’s redundant) resulting in the murder of a United States Border Patrol agent and who knows how many Mexicans to you and me.
Racist, fascist traitor trash that use their government power to abuse and cause the death of innocent people should be executed like the nazis at Nuremburg.
Their rotting corpses should be publicly displayed like Mussolini was to serve as a warning to others like them.
“...”the key question” is to make sure that the mistakes made “never happen again.””
One good way to do that would be to put Eric Holder in jail for aiding and abetting manslaughter. Other AG’s with think twice before running such a program.
Woodward: ‘Mitchell knew?”
Deep Throat: “Of course Mitchell knew.”
—All The President’s Men
“Serious mistakes have been made”.
When the day comes that I hear any government official any where step to a microphone and say, “we f**ked up” I’ll know I’ve died and gone to heaven.
key question is to make sure that the mistakes made never happen again.
That’s government code words for must not let us peons know the next time this happens.
At least Nixon had the integrity to resign over Watergate.
“the key question” is to make sure that the mistakes made “never happen again.”
By CHARGING every last person involved with TREASON and upon Conviction EXECUTION BY HANGING ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN, That is how you stop quisling government agents.
I strongly believe these quislings feel their only “mistake” was getting caught. Hang’em high! Haven’t we heard this phrasing before from the criminals in WDC “Mistakes were made...”?
You better believe that Nappy is up to this to her eyeballs.
Janet Napolitano said that the key question is to make sure that the mistakes made never happen again.
The woman’s an idiot.
The first mistake was when the American people elected a radical far left marxist to the Presidency... who then in turn appointed a radical far left manish apparition of a bull dike to head up the department of homeland security.
Maybe she's starting to understand the thuggishness of Homeland Security is becoming known beyond conservatives...
When ever the Dems get caught doing something wrong, their playbook is to ignore the crime and call for more laws to fix the problem.
