This morning on the today show with Matt Lauer, Dept. of Homeland Security head clown Janet Napolitano tried to hide her bright red nose and floppy shoes by using the old “my words were taken out of context” defense.
She claims what she really meant was that the system worked after the attempt was made. Everything leading up to then failed miserably. Credit to Matt Lauer for pressing her somewhat, some harder follow up question would have been nicer.
From The WSJ Washington Wire:
Lauer pressed: How does a guy who’s on this general terror list, who buys a one-way transtlantic ticket with cash, who checks no luggage, and who’s own father has flagged him to authorities, get on the plane? Napolitano said that “our system did not work in this instance” and no one “is happy or satisfied with that.” She maintained “air travel is safe.”
Sorry but so long as Janet Napolitano is running Homeland Security, I would not consider air travel safe. Count me in with guys over at National Review…FIRE JANET NAPOLITANO!
