Reid Says Chertoff Should Resign
Thursday, January 05, 2006
(SNN Las Vegas) US Senate minority leader here agreed today called for the resignation of Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff. This follows Chertoff dropping Las Vegas from a list of cities considered to be high risk targets for anti-terrorism grains.
More people travel to Las Vegas for New Year's Eve than traveled to New York City.
Reid pointed out that more people travel to Las Vegas for New Year's Eve than traveled to New York City. "Anyone who can't see that Las Vegas is a high-risk area doesn't deserve to serve in a position like that," Reid said.
In addition, Clark County Sheriff Bill Young points out that five of the airplane hijackers troubled to Las Vegas before the September 11 attacks. Also, another terrorist case showed that Las Vegas was considered a good target by terrorists.
the President is crazy
In the defense of Michael Chertoff, it is quite easy to understand why he would drop Las Vegas from the list of threatened cities. He does not even have a glimmer of a clue of what he is doing.
Like many Bush appointees, such as his former deputy Mike Brown, he would be hard-pressed to find his ass with both of his hands. Many people see this as a weakness, but the President is crazy like a fox. It is easy for a terrorist to predict the actions of informed, intelligent and logical people. Today, Chertoff cuts grants for Las Vegas, maybe tomorrow, he will blow up Cleveland. This is how we will keep them guessing.
The White House acted promptly in reacting to Reid's statements. They immediately made a recess appointment of a Chertoff's wife, Julie L. Myers, to head the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Bureau.
