By now we're all aware of the Christmas-day miracle that thwarted a bombing attempt of Northwest Airlines Flight 253. The would-be perpetrator, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was already on a terrorist watch list - yet he was allowed to board.
Not to worry, though! Our intrepid administration of Hope and Change was on the job! Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano assured us, "The whole process of making sure that we respond properly, correctly and effectively went very smoothly.. That's part of what I keep saying, is security is everybody's responsibility. The passengers and the flight crew deserve our praise, and the system went into full alert mode leaning forward, literally, within minutes, an hour of the incident occurring in the air."
Got that? The system went into full alert mode after the incident. Golly-gee-whiz! Isn't it supposed to go into alert before these incidents occur? Later on, Napolitano conceded that the security goofed bigtime.
Of course, the Obama administration quickly "reassured" us all that it is not part of a terrorist plot - even though Abdulmutallab claims Al Qaeda affiliation. Amazing, isn't it, that they immediately know that's the case? They had that same kind of "reassurance" right after the Fort Hood massacre.
Ladies and gentlemen, these are the same people who want to take over your health care! Now that we have yet another example of their complete incompetence, do we want to put our lives into their hands?
