A Border Challenge
Someone Should Resign -- Spencer or McCain
Glenn Spencer -- American Border -- April 12

John McCain and Glenn Spencer at March 31 town hall meeting
    In this report, I challenge the media to investigate John McCain's claim that inexpensive surveillance equipment solved the problem of smuggling across the Barry Goldwater bombing range near Yuma, Arizona. If they find that Senator McCain is reporting accurately, I will resign as head of American Border Patrol. If, on the other hand, they find that McCain is wrong and I am right that it was the fence that solved the problem, McCain should resign.
    The border fence not only stopped the smuggling problem at Goldwater, it set off the Mexican Drug War. If I am right about that, we might well end the war by finishing the fence. These are not trivial issues and McCain should not treat them as such. Neither should the media.
    As the killing of Rob Krentz proved, our border problems are serious. If the senior Senator from Arizona, a man who wanted to be president of the United States, is deliberately misleading people he should not pretend to represent them and I challenge him to resign immediately.
