We now know that when an unidentified man breached a secure area at Newark on Sunday night, the TSA cameras weren't working. Finding their own cameras inoperable, the TSA tried to get a second set of surveillance video from Continental Airlines. But the TSA apparently didn't know the correct telephone number and the specific procedures to get the footage. That caused a two hour delay in identifying the intruder and closing the airport to look for him.
When they finally got the footage, they couldn't find the intruder, discovering later that he had slipped out another entrance 20 minutes after he arrived.
This administration has had a year to make sure our security is more than adequate and that it functions properly. It has had time for dry runs, tweaking and overhauling. Stop the excuses, Barack, you and your fellow incompetents have been asleep at the wheel. Knowing how you have lied about honesty and transparency, I'm sure there is even greater malfeasance that has yet to be uncovered.
Get ready, America, I think what you are about to learn, as White House national security adviser James Jones said, will give you "a certain shock."
"That's two strikes," Jones was quoted as saying, referring to the failed Northwest jet attack and the shooting massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, in November. The Army base attack left 13 dead after officials failed to act on intelligence identifying suspected gunman Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan as a threat to fellow soldiers.
Jones, a retired four-star Marine general, told the paper that Obama "certainly doesn't want that third strike, and neither does anybody else."
A third strike means you're out.
