Janet Napolitano to Testify Today on Govt. Response to Spill
Facing public criticism in the wake of the spill and the failed Times Square bombing (also the Christmas Day plane bombing attempt), Napolitano takes center stage today in front of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs. Will they ask the hard questions or let her off easy?
Here's what I think will happen: She'll rattle off all the things DHS and the White House has done to provide aid and support but nobody will question the timing of these response efforts. I think she'll also shift blame to BP for not understanding the scope of the problem until almost a week after the sinking of Deepwater Horizon.
I hope at least one senator at the hearing can see through the subterfuge and the juvenile displays of White House anger and misdirection.
