JOKE of 2011! Napolitano Helps Afgans Secure Its Borders

Posted on January 1, 2011


WHAT A JOKE!  Janet Napolitano and her Homeland Security Circus instructing the Afghan governemnt how to secure it’s borders…. “Nappy” considers her departments work in Afghanistan a “complement” to the US military effort in Afganistan. Really? I Thought we were there to win a war chat about security posts. And this is all part of America’s Vision of Country building in that area. Again, what happened to the old, proven war strategies-kill the enemey, win the war and then rebuild and give a helping hand.

But the real joke is Janet Napolitano giving anyone or country advice on boarder security and control. Her department can’t manage the millions of illegal aliens pouring into Arizona. And Napolitano hasn’t even tried to stop illegal pouring into Texas and aliens making Texas border towns military battle zones. SHAW

 During an unannounced New Year’s Eve visit to Afghanistan, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano traveled to the country’s mountainous border region near Pakistan to see first-hand her department’s efforts in the war effort there. 

“Seeing is worth a thousand words,” Napolitano said after the tour, to which Fox News was granted exclusive access. “This all involves safety and security in this part of the world. And that is something that has direct connection as well to the United States.” 

She described her department’s role in war-torn Afghanistan as a “complement” to the military operations there. 

Her agency has about two dozen officials in Afghanistan, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, Customs and Border Protection officers, and Border Patrol agents.

Many are training Afghan security forces to manage their country’s borders. 

Although the Afghan government receives most of its money from foreign allies, customs fees and tariffs account for more than half of the money Afghanistan generates on its own. Increasing that revenue flow is a top priority for U.S. officials working to stabilize the chaotic country

Officials said the growing Homeland Security presence in Afghanistan is the product of an effort launched under the Obama administration. Officials say it is part of a “vision” from the late U.S. envoy to the region, Richard Holbrooke, who sought to include more federal agencies in the war and nation building effort here. 

In early November, customs and border officers and agents from Homeland Security’s investigations unit conducted a one-week workshop for 44 officers from Afghan law-enforcement agencies, training them on the interdiction and investigation of cash smuggling. Such criminal activity funds terrorist and criminal organizations.
