From the Homeland Security system that “worked so well” we now have word that Secretary Janet Napolitano is mobilizing a broad response to the "crotch-bomber" . As part of this security “review,” Napolitano is dispatching her deputy, Jane Holl Lute, “on a broad international outreach effort” to review security procedures with “leaders from major international airports in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and South America.”
Who is Jane Holl Lute? Or, more precisely, what kind of hands-on experience is presumed to qualify Lute for the serious responsibility of serving as the #2 official at Homeland Security?
Why, the United Nations, of course. Before joining the Obama Department of Homeland Security, Lute worked for six years as an assistant-secretary-general in the UN’s Department of Peacekeeping Operations. During that stretch, UN peacekeeping expanded rapidly, and so did the related procurement corruption and peacekeeper sex scandals.
Here’s a Washington Post article from 2007, “U.N. Finds Fraud, Mismanagement in Peacekeeping,” which details some of the peacekeeping corruption uncovered by a special UN task force (which the UN has since dissolved). The task force reported findings of “multiple instances of fraud, corruption, waste and mismanagement at U.N. headquarters and peacekeeping missions.” These included 10 “significant instances of fraud and corruption with an aggregate value of $610 million.So Lute seems to be another in a long line of "Obamadopes" charged with our.....(gulp!). SECURITY?????????
