Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told CBC News that:
“Canada is not Mexico, it doesn’t have a drug war going on. It didn’t have 6,000 homicides that were drug-related last year. Nonetheless, to the extent that terrorists have come into our country, or suspected or known terrorists have come into our country, it has been across the Canadian border.”
The CBC reporter then asked whether she was referring to the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks and Napolitano answered:
“Not just those, but others as well. So again, every country is entitled to have a border. It’s part of sovereignty.”
Napolitano apparently missed the fact that the September 11th terrorists all entered through United States airports. Very comforting to see that level of knowledge displayed yet again in the Obama administration.
