Napolitano: “The System Worked”

 

UPDATE: Oops, she was wrong. “The system failed miserably.” I still say she should be fired.

In what kind of Cloud Cuckoo Land is our Secretary of Homeland Security living?

“…[O]ne thing I’d like to point out is that the system worked. Everybody played an important role here. The passengers and crew of the flight took appropriate action. Within literally an hour to 90 minutes of the incident occurring, all 128 flights in the air had been notified to take some special measures in light of what had occurred on the Northwest Airlines flight.”

So the system that worked allowed a man, one whose own father reported him for extremism to our embassy, to walk right onto a plane, wearing underwear full of a deadly and volatile explosive, and then attempt to detonate that explosive. That’s the system that worked?  

We’re counting now on the incompetence of terrorists to prevent things like PETN from detonating on a plane, killing all on board and possibly killing hundreds more as flaming debris rains down on Detroit Metropolitan Airport. That’s the system that worked?

We’re supposed to hope that there are enough brave people on board plance who will tackle would-be terrorists and prevent further damage to our airplanes? That’s the system that worked? 

Pardon me while I change all my future travel plans to Amtrak.

PETN is an incredibly volatile explosive. Take a look at what approximately 8 ounces can do:

“The system worked.”

Throughtout this year, Janet Napolitano has beclowned herself. This is just her latest delusion. Fire her and replace her with someone who doesn’t have her head lodged so firmly where the sun don’t shine.
