Clown alert: Janet Napolitano and Homeland Security

Over the weekend, the incompetence and the radical left ideology of the Obama Administration came together in the skies over the country as a would-be Al Qaida bomber tried unsuccessfully to take down a passenger-laden jetliner. We learn from the dunce running Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, that “the system worked” and “this was a lone operator – not part of a larger group”.

Clown alert: Janet Napolitano says the “system worked”

By Michelle Malkin • December 27, 2009

“It has been, in the words of Queen Elizabeth II, an “annus horribilis” for DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.

Beginning with her embrace of the impotent euphemism “man-caused disasters” to the hit job on conservatives and veterans that she was forced to apologize for, to her assertion that crossing the border illegally “isn’t a crime per se”, to her boneheaded claim that 9/11 terrorists came in through the Canadian border, Ja-No has confirmed time and again that she’s not ready for prime time.

Today, she caps off her horrible year by playing Big Pollyanna in the wake of the Flight 254. The botched bombing — foiled by a faulty detonator and brave passengers, not by homeland security bureaucrats or any preemptive measures by intel officials — shows that she lives in a fantasy world.

If the “system” had “worked,” the U.S. consular officials who granted Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab a short-term visa last June would have revoked it immediately upon being informed by his father that he was a Muslim radical with al Qaeda ties.

If the “system” had “worked,” U.S. consular officials would have never granted Abdulmutallab — a rootless, young, single male — a visa in the first place in compliance with State Department visa regulation 214(b):

That law requires an applicant to show strong roots in his home country — such as a house, a spouse, and/or employment — in order to prove that he would be likely to return home when his visa expired.

Young, single, unemployed men are the people most often refused visas under 214(b) (when it is actually enforced) for the very reasons that al Qaeda recruits them so heavily: They are shiftless and have very little to stop them from packing up and moving to a new country. There’s also, sadly, very little to prevent them from committing terrorist attacks

The “system,” like Napolitano, was an epic failure.

And as predicted, Napolitano also played the “lone nut” card — dismissing the Christmas Day jihadist as a single operator not part of “anything larger” despite his own testimony to the contrary.

She’s Obama’s biggest joker. And there’s no Blame-Bush loophole to weasel through anymore.”

At some point, waiting until the next election doesn’t cut it. Our forefathers turned to violence when their wants and needs were ignored. We don’t need terror in our skies, and only 36% also seem to want the atrocious assault on our healthcare that is taking place.

Had this blown up and all were killed, I'm sure surviving families would feel much better pondering if the job were done by a LONE TERRORIST or a "CONNECTED TERRORIST.
Bozo is amazing.

That's all Obama cares about is that failed Socialist health care that he's trying to shove down our throats. He couldn't care less about terrorism, or the safety of American People who fly. Janet Napolitano suffers from Rectal Cranial Inversion Disorder. That little red hat and clown nose goes good with her Frank Luntz haircut. She's a real space shot just like Nancy Pelosi.

If "waiting until the next election doesn't cut it" and the alternative you suggest is violence, you're proposing the violent overthrow of a duly elected government and that is treason. You don't seem to have much regard for democracy.

I didn't suggest anything; I predicted something. Don't put words in my mouth. Don't be a "major league asshole".
