Napolitano Joins The Immortals

At a recent speaking engagement in El Paso, Texas, the chief of Homeland Security included the following assertions during her public address:

"It is inaccurate to state, as too many have, that the border is overrun with violence and out of control. This statement—often made only to score political points—is just plain wrong."

"We need to be up front and clear about what’s really happening along our borders. Our border communities are safe."

"So today I say to the cartels: Don’t even think about bringing your violence and tactics across this border. You will be met by an overwhelming response. And we’re going to continue to work with our partners in Mexico to dismantle and defeat you."

"Taken as a whole, the additional manpower, technology and resources represent the most serious and sustained action to secure our border in our nation’s history. And it is clear from every key measure that this approach is working."

And with these words, Janet Napolitano has indeed placed herself in select company.  Some of the exclusive club members with whom she is now rubbing elbows include ...

Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf

"I triple guarantee you, there are no American soldiers in Baghdad."

"They tried to bring a small number of tanks and personnel carriers in through al-Durah but they were surrounded and most of their infidels had their throats cut."

"Today I have visited the whole Baghdad city, no invaders found. You go and see how we have ousted them from this city. They are crying outside and waiting to receive bullets. They will be killed shortly."

"They fled. The American louts fled. Indeed, concerning the fighting waged by the heroes of the Arab Socialist Baath Party yesterday, one amazing thing really is the cowardice of the American soldiers. We had not anticipated this."

"Today we slaughtered them in the airport. They are out of Saddam International Airport. The force that was in the airport, this force was destroyed."

"Their forces committed suicide by the hundreds.... The battle is very fierce and God made us victorious. The fighting continues."

Daryl Zanuck

"Television won't last because people will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box every night."

 Gerald Ford

"There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe and there never will be under a Ford administration."

"I don't believe that the Romanians consider themselves dominated by the Soviet Union. I don't believe that the Poles consider themselves dominated by the Soviet Union."

 Marion Barry

"I read a funny story about how the Republicans freed the slaves. The Republicans are the ones who created slavery by law in the 1600's. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and he was not a Republican."

 Hermann Goering

"The Americans are good about making fancy cars and refrigerators, but that doesn't mean they are any good at making aircraft. They are bluffing. They are excellent at bluffing."
