Napolitano Blows Off Dead Patrol Border Agent's Family's Concerns

Hundreds Attend Funeral Service for Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry:

The audacity and arrogance of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is astounding when she not only blows off the concerns of the recently murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, but "scolds" reporters for daring to confront her with those concerns of his father, mother and stepmother.

The family of agent Brian Terry had complained that Napolitano had offered them "empty words" when she called to express her condolences. Terry's father, Kent Terry, in an interview with ABC affiliate KGUN, said he told Napolitano to "wake your man up in the White House," to which she replied that he's done more in two years than any president.

Had the Obama administration put as much money and effort into placing more people on the borders to secure them and less on his desire to pass the amnesty DREAM Act, perhaps Agent Terry's family would not be mourning.

After being told the concerns came from his father, mother and stepmother, she continued: "Listen, we are here today, the commissioner is here today, the chief of the Border Patrol is here today and we are here and his comrades are here with the family, who said other things to me by the way, so I really don't think it appropriate for the media to try to pick this as a fight," she said. "This is a moment to remember a fallen agent."

So, when reporters dare question Napolitano, quoting family members themselves, she accuses the media of picking a fight? She should remember that fallen agent's family are the ones confronting her via the media. Then explain why more is not being done to secure the border before anything else, especially trying to push Congress to offer amnesty to those here illegally.

Terry's death falls right on the shoulders of Obama, Napolitano and Congress for not assuring more bodies on the border to secure it.
