Janet napolitano, arizona shooting victims. Statement by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

"I am deeply saddened by reports that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Chief Judge John Roll and others were attacked today in Tucson, Arizona. There is no place in our society or discourse for such senseless and unconscionable acts of violence. Gabby is a steadfast representative for southern Arizona and both she and John are dedicated public servants.

"The Department of Homeland Security has offered all possible assistance to the FBI and the Pima County Sheriff's Office, who are leading the investigation. My thoughts and prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords, her family and staff, and all those who were injured in this difficult time."

The package was addressed to Napolitano and was believed to be similar to others found in two incidents involving packages delivered to Maryland state offices on Thursday, a Department of Homeland Security official said. No one was seriously injured in those incidents.

“Initial reporting indicates this incident bears characteristics similar to the flaring package incidents at two Maryland state facilities yesterday,” the DHS official said.

Napolitano’s primary office is across town from the mail facility.
Napolitano returned late Thursday from a weeklong trip to Afghanistan, Qatar, Israel and Belgium to discuss terrorism and transportation security.
The FBI, postal inspectors and local police were investigating the latest incident.

The use of full-body scanners and invasive pat-downs at airports around the country will not change for the "foreseeable future," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in an interview broadcast Sunday.

Napolitano dismissed a recent news report about major airports failing secrets tests designed to get contraband such as guns and knives past security screeners. Napolitano and President Barack Obama's homeland security adviser, John Brennan, appeared on the show with Clapper. Napolitano said in the CNN interview that homeland security officials were fully aware what was happening in Britain.
