    Obama, Holder, and Napolitano should all be in jail,
    for the illegal sale of 2,500 weapons, to the Mexican drug cartels
    ... as well as the subsequent COVER UP of these crimes ...
    and the murder of American border agent, Brian Terry.

    If anything, Obama, Holder, and Napolitano,
    should be held to a higher standard, than the rest of us.

    In the days of Watergate, the Press demanded, and
    got JUSTICE for the American people. Today, the
    media looks the other way, or helps in the cover up !!!

      BREAKING NEWS !!! ...

      Obama appointed two devout Muslims to homeland security posts.

      Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim,
      as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.
      DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim,
      who was born in Damascus , Syria , as ADC National Executive Director
      as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

      NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified
      as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...?
      hhhmmm......Just wondering.

      Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security-positions?
      Doesn't this make you feel safer already?
      That should make our homeland much safer, huh!?

      Was it not "Devout Muslim men" that flew planes into U..S. buildings on 9/11?
      Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood ?

        It makes me sad to see people put time, effort, and research into such a racist topic. Obviously you do not understand that the interpretation of the Islamic religion practiced by the murders who carried out the attack is a radical point of view that is not accepted by the other billion people who practice this religion. I myself am Christian, and have researched about 9/11. My research supports the truth that this appointment of those two Homeland security posts are of no problem no concern to anyone in the government. Please think about how other people feel and realize that so many people cannot be pigeon-holed.

        @Bryan G.

        You are an intelligent person...So I will let you know that Howard handsomely paid to post lies and fact free statements by Fox News.....Either that, or so mentally deminted that he thinks any person with a functional brain, would even read his idiot posts for free.

        Try to avoid readying anything from this person at all costs....It Could Cause you to really become depressed about the failure of this country's educational system. But take it from me, Howard never got his kindergarten degree

    The funny thing is that since the mod's approved of your post even though you talk about an 'intellectual's esteemed degrees' they still let it go. Maybe that is the greatest sign that Howard should start getting his facts straight because even CNN is against him.
