During her October 25th testimony before the House Government Oversight Committee, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano claimed she has never spoken about Fast and Furious with Attorney General Eric Holder, had never heard of the deadly scheme prior to the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry (as it was an ATF operation). She insisted, although she is the head of Homeland Security, she considered it unnecessary to learn more about the deliberate smuggling of thousands of weapons into the hands of Mexican drug dealers because there was an investigation being performed by the Inspector General at the Department of Justice.
The degree of outright dishonesty exhibited by Napolitano that afternoon is rivaled only by that of Eric Holder in his House Committee testimony several weeks earlier.
Responding to a question from Committee chair Darrell Issa about her activities following Terry’s death, Napolitano said, “my number one concern [was] that those responsible for the shooting death of Agent Terry were brought to justice.”
Were that actually the case, why would former prosecutor Napolitano make no protest when three of the Mexican illegals taken into custody at the scene of Terry’s murder were subsequently deported to Mexico several weeks after the killing?
No charges were filed by Phoenix U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke, no objection made by the FBI into whose custody the three had been taken and none lodged by the “concerned” Napolitano. Even if none of the three had actually pulled the trigger, aren’t accessories to murder considered….
