In defiance of all evidence Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano is claiming that the incredibly deadly war on drugs in Mexico has not been a failure. The ongoing drug war in Mexico has been incredibly bloody, destructive and deadly. Nearly 50,000 people in Mexico have been killed since 2006, and the actually total is likely much higher. Political assassinations by cartels have been common as a means to undermine law enforcement and basic local democratic governance.

This deportation review is unlikely to stop the record level of deportations, which hit 400,000 last year. Obama Administration official Cecilia Munoz admitted on a Frontline documentary this week that “As long as Congress gives us the money to deport 400,000 people a year, that’s what the administration is going to do.”
That’s a pretty shocking admission.

The more likely possibility, given what Brennan, Napolitano, and Clapper have said is that the US–the entire government–was left out of the loop on this investigation. That’s certainly Britain’s prerogative. You never know when some Dick Cheney figure is going to sabotage a British investigation on them, after all.

As we’ve learned from our elites like the Bidens, Janet Napolitano and even the President, it’s very easy to enthusiastically support these new invasions of privacy when you’re not subject to them. This also appears to be true now among those who support the procedures for the simple reason that they do not fly.

Ignoring the anger and demonizing the angry does not service liberty or security, and it doesn’t do much for the causes of progressives or the Democratic Party, either.
