Hezbollah/Cartels link in Mexico? Napolitano: We've Got It Covered

Back on October 21 I wrote (Mexican Border Security: The Perfect Storm) about Arizona CD-3 Republican candidate Gabriela Saucedo Mercer's warning (also referenced here) that border security needs to be treated as national security.
Today, more concern has been expressed about our vulnerability, specifically regarding a potential Hezbollah-drug cartels link in Mexico, this coming from Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.).  The full article on FoxNews.com is worth reading for its broader background on the subject, including references to Tucson Police Department notices.

How concerned is former Arizona governor and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet "Nappy" Napolitano?
[Emphasis mine] "Myrick fired off a letter to Secretary of Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, requesting DHS create a task force solely to watch Islamic extremist groups in Mexico. Napolitano said there was no need, saying current intelligence resources were adequate...

"I don't have a lot of faith in the Department of Homeland Security," said Myrick. "They should be looking at these groups in Mexico much more closely." (FoxNews.com)
So the $64,000 question (before correction for inflation) is, what kind of event will need to take place for the Federal government to get serious about this?

  1. Here's the event Dude ... NOvember! Romney will right that ship.

  2. Oh no - the sky is falling, the sky is falling !! Just another FOX News report filled with conjecture, falsehoods and fabrications containing the usual biased and unreliable garbage they are famous for.

    1. You really should take off that tin foil hat you get your information from. You sound exactly like Nappy. No, falsehood and conjecture is what the White House engages in repeated by the mainstream media.
