I kinda like Canada – I like it a lot – a second home, next to England, of course.
So, being the protective kinda, I don’t like people sticking their noses in where it is not wanted – and that is exactly where she is sticking it – and for what reason?
The thing that irks me more than anything – and if she should want to do something about it – is all those illegal guns that are being smuggled over the border INTO Canada – what is she on about terrorists routinely crossing the border into the US, FROM Canada?
“Yes, 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,” Napolitano said.
“Nonetheless, to the extent that terrorists have come into our country or suspected or known terrorists have entered our country across a border, it’s been across the Canadian border. There are real issues there.”
When Macdonald asked if she was referring to the 9/11 perpetrators, Napolitano answered: “Not just those but others as well.”
Erm – who, what, where!?
Napolitano misunderstood question, handlers say
So fucking handle her better! The total myth that the 11/9/01 terrorists entered the US through Canada is, well – a big lie, at best a total myth!
And if she believes this – then why is she Homeland Security Secretary?
Napolitano issued a statement later Tuesday to clarify her remarks.
While she knows no 9/11 terrorists entered the U.S. through Canada, she said, “there are other instances … when suspected terrorists have attempted to enter our country from Canada to the United States.
“Some of these are well known to the public, such as the millennium bomber, while others are not due to security reasons.”
That would be a retraction then!
Look – I don’t know if she – or her handlers, really understand how long the border is between the US and Canada – if the US wants to build a border fence – I don’t think that many Canadians will be jumping over it to get into the US, rather – it would be the other way around – there are a lot of US citizens who come over here to get free healthcare, but that is an aside. You can drive along that border and then cross it with impunity – like Palin does when killing wolves and not even know you are in a different nation.
Muzz Napolitano what are your real reasons for wanting a fence built between the US and Canada?
A number of Canadians have stopped going to the US as is – so if you want more to stop doing so by building a fence – do it – and that is not me, that is Canadians saying it – you know, the ordinary ones.
Canada is not Mexico – as she rightly said – and it never will be.
But then, Napolitano appeared to make matters worse by explaining to the border conference [on] Tuesday why the Canada and Mexico borders should be treated equally.
“The fact of the matter is that Canada allows people into its country that we do not allow into ours,” she said.
“That’s why you have to have a border, and you have to have border policies that make sense.”
Canada does! But Canada is a sovereign nation – NOT a US State! So what has it got to do with the US WHO Canada lets in to OUR Country?
Read some of the comments on that CBC story – it shows you how Canadians feel, in England we would say “You have dropped a bollock!” but you wouldn’t understand that.
