Obama's Homeland Security: Blame Guns for Fort Hood, Not Islamic Extremism

Jim Kouri in a Nov. 11 column in Mens News Daily examines how anti-Second Amendment Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's comments following the murder of 13 people at Fort Hood by an American-born Muslim, serving as U.S. Army psychiatrist, has inspired a great deal of angst from wide range of sources -- and spurred calls for her to step down.

Kouri notes that one of those groups is a non-profit organization devoted to national security -- MoveAmericaForward.org. "Napolitano noticeably demonstrates that she is incapable of protecting America from the threat of Islamic terrorism and illegal aliens, therefore she must be fired immediately if our country is going to be safe in the coming years," according to officials at MoveForwardAmerica.org, an organization that supports the U.S. military as well as law enforcement officials.

"MoveForwardAmerica.org notes Napolitano's statements and actions are examples of her incompetence to serve as the top person at Homeland Security when she wrongly claimed that the 9/11 terrorists came through Canada to launch the attack, even though not one of the radical Muslims traveled through our northern border," Kouri writes.

Meanwhile, he adds, Congresswoman Mary Fallin (R-OK) said in a statement that Napolitano is "out of touch with mainstream America" if she believes that returning war veterans and people who believe in the Second Amendment pose a terrorism threat to the nation.

"Like most Oklahomans I was amazed at her statements and actions," Fallin said. "First she approved a report that implied members of the armed forces returning from combat would follow in the footsteps of Timothy McVeigh. Then she insulted our friends in Canada by falsely claiming the 9/11 terrorists came from there. Is this really a person that should be speaking on behalf of our nation?"
