Tiahrt calls for Napolitano's dismissal

WICHITA–U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt is one of 10 members of Congress who sent a letter to President Barack Obama asking him to immediately dismiss Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for what he calls “lack of attention to the threat of terrorism before and after the attempted Christmas Day bombing on Flight 253.”

A timid, lackluster approach – as demonstrated by Napolitano – makes the U.S. increasingly vulnerable, Tiahrt said in a statement.

“There are a lot of differing opinions about what needs to be done, but there is one thing we should all agree on – Janet Napolitano is not fit to be Secretary of Homeland Security,” the  letter to Obama said.
