Head of Homeland Security Worries Too Much About Feelings

Apparently Napolitano at DHS has some strange priorities as shown by this Google news post:
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates — The U.S. Homeland Security secretary says she is working to prevent a possible wave of anti-Muslim sentiment after the shootings at Fort Hood in Texas.
"Janet Napolitano says her agency is working with groups across the United States to try to deflect any backlash against American Muslims following Thursday's rampage by Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim who reportedly expressed growing dismay over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan."

Janet Napolitano apparently doesn't know what her job is. She feels she should make sure my feelings get her stamp of approval. If her department is OK with army majors trying to contact al Qaeda Americans just might need to be more vigilant around Muslims. If DHS has other priorities than protecting me then I guess a lot more of the responsibility falls on me. Maybe a reporter from Fox could ask Napolitano if she has any concern for our safety. The man made and FBI enabled disaster at Ft. Hood has got to have more people than me wondering if Napolitano is up to this job.

Everyone must remember that Napolitano is most worried about right-wing extremists who believe in limited government and private health care.

You're right. She needs to be replaced by someone who can figure out the right priorities for a nation at war. The same goes for her boss.

Her comments are a sample of what's rolling downhill into her department, Congress, the FBI, and the Army top command.
