How come Obama & Janet Napolitano are not saying anything about Americans ambushed by Mexican gunmen on boats?

Following the murder of a U.S. citizen boating on Falcon Lake, Texas law enforcement agencies are advising visitors to stay away from the Mexican side of the popular lake while they are intensifying their investigation of a crime that angered the nation.

“The Zapata County Sheriff’s Office, the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department are telling boaters on Falcon Lake to stay on the United States side of the lake and not venture into Mexican waters,” said a statement released yesterday by the Texas DPS.Fishermen are still advised to stay as far away as possible from any of the Argos-type fishing boats typically used as fishing vessels by Mexican fishermen. These boats have a large prow, a small outboard motor without a cowling and no identification numbers on the hull,” officials stated.

Mexican pirates trolling the waters of the U.S.-Mexico border lake shot and killed a tourist while his wife escaped a hail of bullets and raced her Jet Ski back to American soil. The incident has renewed calls for federal action by border security advocates

Search and rescue teams patrolled the U.S. side of Falcon Lake this weekend searching for the body of Colorado tourist David Michael Hartley, 30, whose wife, Tiffany Hartley, told police he was shot in the back of the head Thursday after being ambushed by gunmen on boats.

The Texas Department of Public Safety announced during a press conference that Hartley was believed to have been killed but his body had not been found. The gunmen are suspected Mexican pirates who prowl Falcon Lake, a favorite spot for water-skiing and bass fishing. There have been five previously reported pirate attacks on that lake this year.

The shooting has led Texas officials to warn American boaters to use caution on the 60-mile lake, in addition to issuing its initial warning following three pirate attacks.

Although many Americans are outraged over this latest border incident, President Barack Obama and his Administration did not comment on the vicious attack on American citizens as well as the unbridled assault on Americans in general. During a press conference held by Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, there was not one word about this unprovoked attack on U.S. citizens.http://www.examiner.com/public-safety-in-national/...

    How long before Obama brings a lawsuit against Texas for allowing American citizens to harass Mexicans?

    Now you want him to start commenting on things? He's working on securing the borders. But he can't work on the economy and the borders at the same time, sorry, no human can do that.

    I thought you were tired of his talk. Didn't the conservatives say that they want Obama to take action?

    Now you want him to start commenting on things? He's working on securing the borders. But he can't work on the economy and the borders at the same time, sorry, no human can do that.

    I'm not being partisan, I'm just mentioning things that you don't seem to be mentioning. You are not being fair at all. Give him a chance to be a human being.....
