Heck of a Job, Nappy!
Today, when discussing the failed terror attack on the Northwest flight from Amsterdam, Janet Napolitano said “The system worked. Everything worked according to clockwork”. Um, perhaps she meant like a clockwork orange? That’s the only plausible explanation.
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.”
Napolitano added that there was “no suggestion that [the suspect] was improperly screened.”
Hello, Janet? He was on a watch list — and still got on a plane. WITH A BOMB in his pants. Talk about a suspicious “package” – literally. Pretty sure that means that there was “improper screening”. How on earth did “the system work”? Unless, of course, you mean the original intent of our free Republic, in which case, you are correct. Correct because, once again, private citizens succeeded where government bureaucracy failed. As always.
Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is, in fact, a useless bint, Napolitano went on to say this:
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday there was no indication so far that an alleged botched terror attack on a U.S. airliner was part of a broad international effort.
“Right now we have no indication that it is part of anything larger,” Napolitano told CNN’s “State of the Union” program.
Oh, really? You have no indication? Luckily, bloggers and the new media are once again doing the job that the government doesn’t want to do and uncovering the truth:
ABC: “Investigators believe Abdulmutallab was connected to al Qaeda by the same radical imam, American-born Anwar Awlaki, who is linked to the American Army major accused of opening fire at Fort Hood in November.”
Of course, that must just be nitpicking by the nutty nut Right Wing Radical Extremists that you warned us about, huh, Janet? This pesky little bomb was just an itsty bitsy attempted man-made disaster, right? So insignificant that the President can’t take time away from golfing and body-surfing in Hawaii. The system worked — move along, nothing to see here! What’s next? Sure, unemployment is at 10% and rising, but we call it FUNemployment now so “the system” is totally working!
I await further spin, which I suspect will entail such things as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder via osmosis (that happens now, you know. Just ask the Fort Hood terrorist apologists). Chris Matthews will surely once again assure us that “it isn’t a crime to call Al-Quada” whilst tingling madly. The sycophantic douchebaggery will reach epic proportions, all to cover for The One as he lounges on the beach or strolls the promenade in Mom jeans.
Well, guess what? This wasn’t a “foiled attempt.” Y’all foiled nothing – it was a failed attack. There is a big difference and the fact that the Administration is either too stupid or too blind to see it is incredibly infuriating and frightening. The terrorist, thankfully, made a faulty device. Perhaps he was distracted and trying to figure out how he could detonate a bomb in his tighty whities and blow up his naughty man bits, yet somehow manage to not take the bang (heh) out of that whole 72 virgins deal? Whatever the reason, he, thank goodness, failed. Private citizens then made sure that any damage at all was further mitigated and they took him down. On their own. Where was the government and our homeland security? Busily bowing, apologizing to those who wish to kill us, and frantically avoiding perceived “profiling” out of the insane fear of looking non-politically correct.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Political correctness is no longer just annoying. It’s deadly.
