Maritime Cargo Scans Shouldn't Be Delayed, U.S. Lawmakers Say

Aug 4, 2010 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.businessweek.com

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano should meet a 2012 deadline to inspect all maritime cargo bound for the U.S. to ensure it's free of explosives, lawmakers said today.

Representatives Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told Napolitano in a letter today that members have concerns about her agency’s lack of progress in meeting the deadline set in a 2007 law passed in response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He was joined by fellow Democrats Edward Markey of Massachusetts and Jerrold Nadler of New York.

Janet Napolitano says she can't protect USA borders.

And President Barack Obama said the same.

Let's elect a new President in 2012 who WILL protect the USA's borders.

Vote out Democrats in 2010 to give a balance to our government. Right now democrats control ALL three branches of government: Pelosi, Reid, Obama, plus Obama is appointing LIFETIME judges that will reign after his presidency is over.

Get a balance of representatives, by VOTING OUT ALL DEMOCRATS. Right now, all that has happened is controlled by democrats in the House, the Senate and the White House.

It has to be ALL democrats or Pelosi keeps the numbers and retains Speakership.
