Former Pentagon Official to Be Nominated as Homeland Security Chief
The New york Times ^ | October 17, 2013 | Michael S. Scmidt

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to nominate Jeh C. Johnson, who framed many of the administration’s national security policies as the Defense Department’s general counsel during Mr. Obama’s first term, to become the next chief of the Homeland Security Department, according to administration officials.

Mr. Johnson has little experience with some of the issues Janet Napolitano faced, like border security, immigration and cybersecurity.

During his tenure at the Defense Department, he spearheaded the end of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law that had barred gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military. He also shaped the Obama administration’s policies on the detention of terrorism suspects and on targeted drone strikes in Yemen and Somalia.

Not a racist, probably just another incompetent appointee, like the last one.

“Mr. Johnson has little experience with some of the issues Janet Napolitano faced, like border security, immigration and cybersecurity.”

That’s OK, “Jeh”.
All you have to do is come out of your office every couple months and say, “The system works!”
That’s all the bull dyke did.

I wonder what “Jeh”s kink is. Pedophilia? Standard cockknocker? Tax cheat? Trannie?
All of 0’s appointments have some `distinction’.

Race is irrelevant with a name like that.

Oh boy, another angry black man at the top of the US government to head a heavily armed powerful department for this administration. When the Adolf obozo declares martial law, you can rest assured this guy will carry out Adolf obozo’s order to turn the DHS militaristic heavy weapons against any American who resists their complete take over.

No pubbie senator will dare oppose the confirmation of a black man regardless of how unqualified.

“During his tenure at the Department of Defense, he was known for his sound judgment and counsel,” the official said. “He was responsible for the prior legal review and approval of every military operation approved by the president and secretary of defense.”

If that's the case, during his confirmation hearing he should be asked about Benghazi .

Yeah, like the “down home mother” who named her daughter LA-A. When she was asked how to pronounce it, she said “it’s LADASHA, the dash don’t be silent!”
