Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claims that "the system worked" in the prevention of Delta Flight 253 being blown up.

Where should I even begin with this one? What alternate universe is Janet Napolitano residing on? In an interview on CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Janet Napolitano stated that there was "no suggestion that Umar Abdulmutallab was improperly screened".

Right now as I'm writing this, I am expressing a cynical sneer as I am reflecting on the comments of Ms. Napolitano. So according to her, "there was no evidence that Abudal was improperly screened". So how come Mr. Umar was able to sneek explosives onto an American bound airplane in Amsterdam if he was properly screened? You got to love those trick common sense questions. I'm just thinking from the hip on this, but I believe if Umar Addulmutallab was "properly screened", the airport security would have found the explosives. Now that I think about it, how does Ms. Napolitana know that Mr. Abdulmutallab was properly screened? Did she fly over to Amsterdam and have already met with Amsterdam officials? Has she already conducted and concluded an international terrorist plot investigation in less then 48 hours?! I've never known for the federal government to work that fast. She also claimed that the "system worked" in the fact that the plane wasn't blown up. The only reason why flight 253 wasn't blown up on Christmas day over Detroit is due to fact that the EXPLOSIVE DEVICE MALFUNCTIONED!! In other words, "the system worked, because the bomb didn't work". So this is what we have representing the organization that is responsible for protecting our homeland? This has to be a nightmarous cruel joke right? It's comments like the ones from a naive liberal like Janet Napolitano that is the reason why Americans don't trust liberals on the issue of National Security. I have a sad hunch that airline screenings are going to be much stricter going forward. I don't have a problem with that necessarily. The thing I don't like is that out of political correctness, "groups that are known for not being candidates for suicide bombers" are going to subjected to the stricter screenings. I said yesterday that liberals were going to try and explain away Mr. Abdulmutallab as merely being a "lone wolf" and not apart of a large terrorist plot. Janet didn't disappoint.

This woman represents the Obama administration quite well incompetent to point of undeniable stupidity.

All the more reason I felt safer with Bush in office than I do with these far-left looney bins!
People survived because the bomb didn't go off means those passengers were blessed.

If Liberals have a problem with me using the world blessed I have one thing to say to Liberals get over it!

Janet Napolitano should be committed to the insane asylum for such gross ignorance of reality!

Napolitano's initial response was down right dumb. It didn't take her long though to retract her stupidity.

The Office of Homeland Security has been a boondoggle since it's inception. From GWB's initial nomination of crook/mobster/liar Bernard Kirk, through the billions of dollars in excess and waste, ineffective "data mining" (the ADVISE system), to the lowest employee moral of any government agency.

Since the wannabe jihadist terrorist burned his privates in his explosive malfunction, I guess he won't be needing those 72 virgins after all.It's just something to think about.

Everything failed. They passed some feel-good laws that denied rights of citizens, and then the bad guys tried to kill us again. Meanwhile TSA was measuring how many ounces of shampoo you are allowed to take on a plane, or X-raying your shoes. Neither of those will blow up a plane. These goddamned incompetent elected and appointed officials are not doing their jobs and they should be fired with all due prejudice.

The irony of all this is that Janet Napolitano was the Republican Governor of Arizona!

How crazy is THAT?!

If anything, this should prove that the "political class" (the Party Hacks) of BOTH Parties are "in the tank" for Big Government.

America NEEDS a lot LESS government.

America doesn't need the overly generous social programs that have really served to keep legions of truly unemployable "social workers" employed.

America doesn't need a government that has controlled America's banking industry - forcing banks via fiat to invest heavily in the communities they take in their deposits from....and to lend to more "low income" (that's "NON-CREDITWORTHY BORROWERS"), creating, in effect, "credit socialism....which is what caused the subprime mortgage crisis, the home mortgage meltdown and the subsequent global credit crisis.

And America sure doesn't need a Homeland SECURITY Agency steeped in over-sensitive "political correctness."

Political correctness is an emotional pathology that erroneously posits that (1) ALL human cultures have an equivalent value (not true) and (2) that people by dint of their merely being alive have some intrinsic worth (also demonstrably not true).

Napolitano's 24-hour flip-flop on whether "the system worked" or not is even more pathetic than it is humorous.....and it's undeniably pretty damned humorous.
