Yesterday the woman charged with making sure that we don't get blown up by a terrorist, made her second really idiotic statement in less than two weeks. Her first, "The System Worked" was no where near as stupid as the one she made yesterday.
When asked, what was the most shocking thing she learned from the security review released by the White House yesterday, she answered"
I think, following up on that, not just the determination of al Qaeda and al Qaeda Arabian Peninsula, but the tactic of using an individual to foment an attack, as opposed to a large conspiracy or a multi-person conspiracy such as we saw in 9/11, that is something that affects intelligence. It really emphasizes now the renewed importance on how different intelligence is integrated and analyzed, and threat streams are followed through. And, again, it will impact how we continue to review the need to improve airport security around the world.
.... the determination of al Qaeda and al Qaeda Arabian Peninsula???? Janet Napolitano has been office for a year, studying the most secret of intelligence reports we have. What the Hell did she think al Qaeda was? Just a few guys hanging out looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon? Osama Bin Laden's team has been killing themselves and us for over a decade, and she is first figuring out that these murders are serious about their goal of overthrowing western society?
...the tactic of using an individual to foment an attack, as opposed to a large conspiracy or a multi-person conspiracy such as we saw in 9/11. Perhaps Ms. Napolitano has never heard of "The Shoe Bomber," Major Hasan's attack on Fort Hood, or all those homicide bombings in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. Maybe Katie Couric should call her up and find out what newspapers she reads, because the Director of DHS does not know what is going on in the world.
Yesterday, the Director of Homeland Security has proven herself to be totally misinformed, and irrevocably stupid. It is time for our President, "Mr. Buck Stops Here" to fire Napolitano and find a DHS Director who reads a Newspaper.
