Ready, set - DEPLOY!
President Obama is sending 1,200 National Guard troops to boost security along the US - Mexico border.
What do the "experts" think:
WXNT Indianapolis, IN asked Ret'd Lt. Col. Jeff Addicott - director for the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary's University - if sending these troops will make a dent in the problem...
Vice President for Homeland Security at the National Graduate School - Dr. David McIntyre - echoed a similar sentiment to Jamie Allman at KFTK St. Louis:
There's some concern in the law enforcement community that President Obama will repeat a move made by his predecessor - limiting the troops to support roles - instead of allowing them to make arrests and confront smugglers along the border.
Also making for some buzz today:
It's go time - BP shooting the "KILL SHOT" -- thick, dense mud - into the leaking pipe.
This being done in hopes of FINALLY plugging the oil leak that's been pumping oil into the gulf for over a month now.
Well - what are the odds it'll work?
Fox News Radio's TODD STARNES speaking with KTRH Houston, TX.
...if today's move doesn't work - there's a possibility of it making the leak WORSE.
