Napolitano Breaks Silence On Release Of Criminal Illegal Aliens To Say She Had Nothing To Do
Pat Dollard ^ | 2/28/13 | Pat Dollard/ABC

Posted on 02/28/2013 5:01:57 PM PST by Nachum

You’ll notice she uses the same “career officials” talking point the White House used two days ago, the day this broke…

Excerpted from ABC News: Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had no part in a decision by underlings to release illegal immigrant detainees as a way to save money before the sequestration and was surprised to learn about it, Napolitano told ABC News in an exclusive interview.

“Detainee populations and how that is managed back and forth is really handled by career officials in the field,” Napolitano said.

She’s responsible for all that they do or don’t do.

Then fire the Jerk or resign yourself. I’m tired of these Clowns saying they are fully responsible and then nobody pays for the screw up.

Why doesn’t the he/she just fall down and get a fake concussion and wear thick fake glasses to avoid questions. Oh, wait, Hillary already pulled that card. Incompetano will have to think of something else.

Of course she`s full of shit.

This is THE plan coming right from the oval office, to inflict maximum pain and suffering and then blame the GOP for the sequester mess.

She could be telling the truth. Maybe 0bama picked up the phone and ordered the jailers to let them out.

The order to let the illegal criminals go was sent out from DHS LAST WEEK. If Big Sis is such a poor manager of her department that she doesn’t find out about egregious decisions such as this, she is incompetent and should be fired.

“Detainee populations and how that is managed back and forth is really handled by career officials in the field,” Napolitano said.

That does not address the wholesale release of a bunch of suspected illegal aliens (NOT "undocumented workers"). Knowing the tight-fisted control Zero puts on all his people, something like this (political) HAD to go past her. Must have been done in a way for her to deny culpability if the SHTF.

Now they will lay low and see if this blows away ("Can't we just get past this", ala Clinton). If not, some underling will be "fired" and the "media" will move on.

OR

The "media" will be presented with some other "interesting" story (bomb an aspirin factory, maybe?), and the horde will chase after that.

This stuff is too predictable.

Either that or her department’s sequester savings could be had by simply eliminating her position if she’s that unnecessary.

I just cannot help but feel that Napolitano’s office must be chaos with the unknowing leading the unwilling to do the wrong things especially related to self-defense, Second Amendment, and terrorism....when they cannot even speak the word “terrorism”. What’s that all about? Is this government sailing without a rudder? Or really preparing to start a civil war with the people?

Why are there no competent journalists out there to follow the papertrail?

Breitbart died one year ago and so did all of the life of the majority of the Conservative Movement. IMHO

The phrase “handled by career officials in the field” is exactly what I would have expected to hear at the Nuremburg war crimes trials. It is the inverse of “just following orders”.

Lets see:

"was surprised to learn about it"
Had nothing to do with it
"What difference does it make"

Think I see a pattern here with the assministration.

Career officers in the field are responsible for the release?

From the choppy news stories, it seems the releases were done at several retention facilities. If that is true, and if career officials are the ones who did it, they would have had to collude.

Per some reports, the release orders were sent over a week ago.

So, who gave/sent out the release orders.

Either there is a conspiracy amongst the career officials in the field, or they were set up by someone high up in the ICE/HSD organization.

==

Napolitano's denial that she knew anything either shows her complete ineptitude as HSD Secretary, or that the career underlings conspired to release tens-of-thousands of illegals.

How many heads will roll from this scandal on Obama's watch?

Just like Fast and Furious.

Just like the 'anti-Mohammed video.'

No one knows who did it. It just happened. Spontaneous manifestation.

I didn't see it but I don't doubt it.

Did anyone else notice that the WH said "we don't know anything about these releases" and at the same time said "none of them were criminals?" They sure know a lot about something they don't know anything about.

Lieing Biotch.... I talked with a BP Captain last night and he said this came from the very TOP not some field agent.

Nappy is lieing her big ol a$$ off as usual.

He also said they are being cut one day a shift. There may be a day a week where there may be NO BP agents out in the field in their sector. Imagine that, NO overlap.

When the smugglers figure out which day that is, they will have it made and it will be wide open gates for them. UNDBELIEVABLE and it will only take them one shift to figure it out.

Get ready Counties North of the border because you are the next line of defense.

It was the same guy who briefed the president on Benghazi.

It was all caused by Quantum Physics. Spooky action at a distance.

Let me see. The gubmint of the United Banana Republic of America released 500 illegals onto the populace of Pinal county Arizona. A populace that is armed to the teeth. I wonder just how long before one or more of the illegal protected species is shot.
Or a Pinal County citizen is killed.

I think they may have just maybe opened a real can of worms this time.

These are the same people who want to micromanage the health of every American and have control over our individual health records, yet they always claim not to know what is going on in the very agencies they control?

So when their health agency's panel starts killing off nursing home residents for fear of not getting as big a budget increase as the year before, the head of the agency is going to pull the same crap and say he didn't know about it, then order up another round for the coroners...

I'm sure she'd be sympathetic if the president of BP said that he bore no responsibility for the gulf oil spill. So would the preezy, I'm sure.

“Napolitano Breaks Silence On Release Of Criminal Illegal Aliens To Say She Had Nothing To Do With It”

IMHO, the headline could have said, “NAPOLITANO BREAKS WIND,” and it would have been more accurate..

she didn’t do nuthin, she didn’t hear nuthin, she didn’t see nuthin and she didn’t say nuthin. This is the person in charge of all the domestic security including the Coast Guard and she has no idea what is going on in her department..

Sop we have two powerless people running security, foreign policy and economic policy for the country because everything that’s been going on for the past four years is out of their control. They’re victims...
