I wonder what excuse Napolitano will give as to why they thought they could smuggle more drugs into the country?

210 incident's this year and our coast guard was in an inflatable!!!!! Absurd. The Mexican Government could help, but won't and now we have to spend millions more on decent vessels that can actually help our coastguard catch these criminal's. Yes we need people in charge that give a rat's azz as to whether we should start losing coastguard personnel, that obviously need better equipment... and now. Start bombing from the drones at these losers. I read an article today that Vet's from World War 11 don't recognize this country anymore, and this is why. No Leadership.
