Assemblyman Gregory Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) announced his new Assembly Resolution, calling on behalf of New Yorkers for the resignation of Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security:
“Second only to Jerusalem, New York City is the world’s greatest terrorist target. New Yorkers have real reason to be concerned over the recent developments showing the soft underbelly of our transportation security network. It has become clear that Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security, is unfit for her responsibility to protect the safety and lives of the 300 million Americans who need real protection from global and domestic threats. The planned terrorist attack against our Nation this Christmas never should have had the opportunity to succeed. This man was not a mastermind. He took no measures to hide his true identity or his purpose. Only providence and a detonator malfunction prevented the loss of nearly 300 lives. Yet Napolitano responded to this obvious failure by applauding her system for working. She should be outraged that her department failed to prevent a terrorist attack on our Nation’s soil. The President should be outraged. In this instance, for this job, we cannot afford to give another chance.
“Napolitano must go.”
