I have often questioned this Administration's seriousness in fighting crime. It happily went along with the Crack Dealers Relief Act (formally known as the Fair Sentencing Act); it appointed an Attorney General who gushes all over himself seeking the approval of the defense bar but can't decide where, or whether, to try terror mastermind KSM; and we have a DOJ that looks the other way at club-wielding thugs menacing a polling station.
This story, however, reaches the point of low comedy. Frankly, it sounds so bizarre that I have trouble believing it. But so far as I have been able to discover, the Administration does not deny it.
The story is, in short, that we are fighting the war on illegal immigration at the border, and its intimately related massive drug smuggling, with beanbags. Not too surprisingly, the opposition is not returning the favor, and is using guns. One of them killed a federal agent. If this has inspired any re-thinking of the Administration's policy, however, I haven't been able to discover that either.
Why a terrorist, or even a cat burglar, would take this crew seriously remains a mystery.
