DHS Demonizes Political Opponents?

After this thinly supported report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, what's next for the agency--helping O.J. find the real killers of Ron and Nicole?

Update: Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said on April 14 that he was “dumbfounded” over the report's issuance and demanded an explanation from Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano. The report apparently also failed to go through the normal DHS internal vetting process.

In other news, a Clinton-administration retread is due to take over as the "czar" of southwestern border:
Secretary Napolitano is naming a "border czar" to oversee issues related to drug-cartel violence along the U.S.-Mexico border and the hundreds of thousands of people who try to enter the U.S. illegally through the Southwest.
An Obama administration official says Napolitano on Wednesday will name Alan Bersin, a former federal prosecutor, to fill the new post at the Homeland Security Department. The official would speak only on condition of anonymity ahead of the announcement expected in El Paso, Texas.
