Homeland Security Sec. Talks Mpls-Linked Terrorism

WASHINGTON (WCCO) — After a suicide bombing in Somalia this past weekend was linked to a young man from Minneapolis, homeland security is on the minds of law enforcement here. Amelia Santaniello had the chance to ask Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napalitano about it Tuesday.

She says the greatest guard against home grown terrorism is strong law enforcement at the local level. Her Department works very closely with agents here in the Twin Cities.

“Our civil rights and civil liberties section has worked extensively with the Somali-American community in Minneapolis, which is a very law abiding community overall. But it does have this one connect with al Shabab that we all have to be concerned about,” said Napalitano.

Napalitano says the President’s American Jobs Bill will commit $5 billion for local police and firefighters.

    Napolitano should resign with Holder over F and F. She doesn’t have a clue as to what her job requirements are.

    I’m most offended by her hair cut. Who cuts her hair, Helen Keller? She evidently uses Stephanopolis’s and John Kerry’s and Blaggo’s barber. Why do the all these big feminist liberal women seem to all want to dress up like men? It’s kinda creepy.

    Seriously guys, must we always criticize a person’s and judge them by their haircut? If you don’t like it, maybe YOU should pay for her haircut. Good Grief..Highschool still I tell ya, never thought I would still be in it as an adult. People these days, and their judgments of how people look…unbelieveable.
