Why Isn’t Obama Talking About the Human Skulls?

And if you’re a Border Patrol agent working those dark canyons at night, or a resident trying to protect your family from the drug gunmen, keep your head down and best of luck — because the President has higher priorities than you.

It’s a political fairy tale, with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano as the chief wand-waver.

The border is as secure as it’s ever been, she proclaims, so couldn’t we just move it along and stop talking about the armed bandits roving Arizona’s backcountry, the recurring shootouts between rival cartels, the smugglers sniping at Border Patrol, and of course, the skulls that keep popping up?

The feds base their security boasts on success in the border towns.  But these efforts haven’t stopped the illicit traffic, only moved it out into our remotest lands.
Out of sight, out of mind is part of the government’s plan.  With the bad guys high up in the mountains and in the canyons, Napolitano and Bersin get the political cover to claim the war is just about won.

Tell that to the folks living in and around the Coronado National Forest west of Nogales.  It has become a modern-day frontier, as drug mules, illegal aliens, and bandits cross the Peck Canyon Smuggling Corridor.

On Dec. 14, Border Patrol Brian Terry was murdered in Peck Canyon when his four-man tactical team got into a firefight with at least five bandits, several armed with AK-47s.
