Michael Chertoff needs to step down...

This story out of the Washington Times with a shocking claim--a Mexican national named Amado Isidro Armendariz Amaya, who was infected with a highly contagious form of TB crossed our border 76 times this year and took multiple flights within the US. According to the story, Customs was warned on April 16th but Homeland Security didn't issue an alert until six weeks later.


The CDC reports that the airlines are only notified if the infected person was on a flight for eight hours or more! How would you feel if you just found out he was sitting next to you on one of those flights?

It's time to clean house in Homeland Security. We've all had enough of this crap. It's apparent DHS can't seem to get it's shit together. They can't even communicate with other government agencies, we expect them to be in charge of keeping our country safe?

  1. I am totally freaked out by this story. And I'm not surprised, we all know a huge government agency like the creation of Homeland Security was a boondaggle. Since when do huge bureaucracies spell efficiency? Geez.
