Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano needs a glass bellybutton. That way she can see where she’s going even with her head planted, apparently, in her posterior.
Politico has the story:
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up an Amsterdam-Detroit airline flight Christmas Day demonstrated that “the system worked.”
Asked by CNN’s Candy Crowley on “State of the Union” how that could be possible when the young Nigerian who has been charged with trying to set off the bomb was able to smuggle explosive liquid onto the jet, Napolitano responded: “We’re asking the same questions.”
So… make a statement and then question your own conclusion? And, how exactly is a terrorist successfully smuggling explosives aboard an international flight an example of the system working? The only thing that saved the day in this incident was the fact that the detonator malfunctioned.
