In an unrelated hearing today before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley had some pointed questions for Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. It should be pointed out that before Napolitano was appointed to DHS, she had served as Governor of Arizona, Attorney General of Arizona, and US Attorney for Arizona. One would think that she would want to be kept apprised of what was going on in her old home state.
UPDATE: Prior to becoming the U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona, Dennis Burke was a senior advisor to Janet Napolitano at the Department of Homeland Security. Given that Burke’s office worked with ATF on Operation Fast and Furious, I find it interesting that Napolitano claims to have no knowledge of such a big operation.
