"Violence Against Border Agents Viewed As Sign of Success" (Forgive the freaky website this links to- but this headline is worth it.)
Only Michael Chertoff could interpret the increased violence along the U.S.-Mexico line as an indication that the border is becoming more secure. Some corporations- Boeing, for one- might view it as a successful payload, but only Michael Chertoff secures our homeland by provoking terror and increasingly violent counter-tactics instead of addressing the root causes of these issues.
Oh, wait. I guess that's something of a national strategy these days.
If you think this post is off-topic, think again. One-quarter of the 1,950 mile U.S.-Mexico border outlines public land, including national parks, forests, and wildlife refuges. The mentality of the person tasked with "securing" it is of utmost importance.
