Chertoff as Latest Fall Guy

By on 3.3.06 | 4:24PM

Human Events is reporting that Department of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff's days are numbered in the job.

Granted, Chertoff's role in the Katrina disaster -- particularly in light of the videoconference tape that was leaked by Democrats on Capitol Hill -- continues to put him in a bad light. But how is it that the President's own Homeland Security Adviser continues to skate off scott free in this controversy? Don't let the Chanel outfits fool you -- Frances Townsend is one tough cookie and clearly an experienced street fighter. She deserves at least as much blame for the DHS debacles as Michael Brown and Chertoff, particularly given that it is her input that the President receives far more often and directly than that of others in these kinds of situations.
