Congressmen Call Investigation Homeland Security

Lou Dobbs reporting two congressmen are calling for a full investigation of Homeland Security Department regarding the case of the two border patrol agents, Ramos and Compean...

Rep. Ted Poe and Culbertson

looks like a clear case of direct lying, says Dobbs.

Yes, the pair agree... asked for documents, and through FOIA, able to obtain docs that didn't concur with what we were told...

Must get an appeals bond, so these men can be out of prison pending an appeal...

The controversy dates back to a Sept. 26 meeting Redman and three other DHS investigators had with Poe, Culberson and two other Republican members of the Texas delegation, Reps. Michael McCaul and Kenny Merchant.

Skinner testified under oath Tuesday before the Subcommittee on Homeland Security of the House Appropriations Committee his investigators "misrepresented" to the Texas delegation that Ramos and Compean said they wanted "to shoot some Mexicans" the day of Feb. 17, 2005, incident in which a drug smuggler escaped across the border after a confrontation with the agents.

In a telephone interview today, WND asked Poe if he agreed that Redman should resign.

"There has to be some kind of consequence for misleading members of Congress in this investigation," he replied. "This was not a statement that the pickup was green when it turned out to be blue."

Poe emphasized the "misleading information went to the crux of the government's case that there was some kind of a so-called 'conspiracy' among these two Border Patrol agents to go out that day and shoot some foreign nationals."

"That was a total fabrication," he said.

Poe said that if the Justice Department does not look into the DHS misrepresentations, then "Congress will just have to weigh in on its options."
