So says our profoundly unqualified head of Homeland Security, Janet "Bozo" Napolitano.
Jonah Goldberg thinks she ought to be fired. But she insists that everything went "according to clockwork." We can forgive the botched cliché but not her confusion about the meaning of "homeland security."
If the “system” had “worked,” Abdulmutallab would have been barred from the U.S. like he had been barred from Britain.
The “system,” like Napolitano, was an epic fail.
She’s Obama’s biggest joker. And there’s no Blame-Bush loophole
to weasel through anymore.
RS McCain reminds us of Napolitano's real accomplishment:
Yes, but you've got to give Janet Napolitano credit for preventing terrorist attacks by those right-wing extremists, not to mention her perfect record against the Olga Swenson menace. Just imagine what carnage might have been wrought by elderly Lutheran ladies, if not for the vigilance of DHS!This just in: a second "lone" Nigerian has turned up:
Gird your loins, people. DHS is in denial and our Commander in Chief is golfing. You are the system.
DETROIT - A passenger onboard the same Northwest Airlines flight that was attacked on Christmas Day was taken into custody in Detroit on Sunday after becoming verbally disruptive upon landing, officials said.
A law enforcement official said the man was Nigerian and had locked himself in the airliner's bathroom. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.
Officials told NBC News the disruptive passenger, who refused to come out of the bathroom for more than an hour, may have had "stomach problems" that prevented him from leaving.
