First, this woman says the system worked because the crew avoided panic, the passengers subdued the terrorist and authorities notified other flights in the air and kept the air transport system operating.
"The whole process of making sure that we respond properly, correctly and effectively went very smoothly," Napolitano said.
If the terrorist had succeeded in bringing the plane down, a very real possibility, would the response to that if orderly and procedural have also meant the system worked? No, of course not. Janet you are an imbecile.
Now, she's trying to blame Bush. Napolitano admits the system failed miserably, but repeatedly points out it was a system put in place while George W. Bush was President. White House spokesman Baghdad Bob Gibbs made similar statements.
Why then, just days before this terrorist attack, did the U.S. Department of Homeland Security release its “2009 Accomplishments & Reforms” fact sheet, touting its “Secure Flight” passenger vetting program. Whose watch did that happen under Janet. You, you moronic blame shifter.
Janet says there is no indication that the man who attempted to destroy an airliner in Detroit on Christmas Day is part of a larger terrorist plot. She refused to say whether Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has a connection to al-Qaida, citing the ongoing criminal investigation.
Yet, in a tape released four days before the attempted destruction of the Detroit-bound Northwest plane, the leader of al Qaeda in Yemen boasted of what was planned for Americans, saying, "We are carrying a bomb to hit the enemies of God."And, the terrorist told FBI agents there were more just like him in Yemen who would strike soon. Janet you are an incompetent cretin.
As I have said before this woman did nothing to protect the Arizona border with Mexico when she was governor, in fact she often worked against apprehending illegals who were massively invading the state.
Why would you put such a person in charge of Homeland Security. Tell us President Obama, explain this line item on your list of horrendous appointments. The system failed, Napolitano failed and you, Barack Obama failed. Blame no one else, it happened on your watch.
