Janet Napolitano Responds to Report of Deportation for Former ‘Person of Interest‘Not Worthy of an Answer’Submitted by ralph hornsby on Thu, 04/18/2013 - 14:30
A visibly irritated Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refused to answer a Republican congressman’s questions about the possible deportation of the Saudi national questioned as a witness in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Napolitano called South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan’s question “so full of misstatements and misapprehension that it’s just not worthy of an answer.”
“We have someone who’s being deported due to national security concerns,” Duncan had said during a Capitol Hill hearing Thursday. “We’ve got this guy who was there, we know he was there…and yet we’re going to deport him? We’re going to remove him from the scene?”
“If I might, I am unaware of anyone who is being deported for national security concerns at all related to Boston,” Napolitano said.
“He is being deported,” Duncan said.
