Janet Napolitano claims Christmas airline bomber saved or created 278 lives

by editor on December 28, 2009

Delusional Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano thinks the Christmas airline bomber proves that they system worked. Seriously. That’s what she said.

Dutchman Jasper Schuringa poured water on the bomber's balls and simultaneously rained on Janet Napolitano's parade

Politico reports that even CNN choked on the comment:

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up the Amsterdam-Detroit flight this week 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 sought to set off the bomb was able to smuggle explosive liquid onto the flight, Napolitano responded: “We’re asking the same questions.”

Napolitano added that there was “no suggestion that [the bomber] was improperly screened.”

For god’s sake, Jan, disaster was averted only because one brave passenger tackled the guy, poured water on his burning balls, stripped him naked to make sure he had no additional explosives, and tied him up.

News flash for Janet Napolitano: that guy didn’t work for the DHS.

My PC “crashed” right after pressing the ‘PLAY’ button!

A new world record for the amount of stupidity a Human skull can contain!…

I would not want Napolitano to be in charge of concert security at a gig I’m attending, let alone be in charge of Homeland Security. She is an idiot of the highest order.

Your headline gave me a real chuckle on a Monday morning. :) I may have to “steal it”.

Janet the wacky lesbian screwed up Arizona leaving us with a billion dollar budget deficit. She got the call from Obama to head the DHS and, of course, ran to it like a rat leaving the proverbial ship.

As is obvious from this video she took her nasty hairdo, her inability to run anything more complex than bingo game and her ongoing delusion that she is doing a great job. Way to go, Nappy!!

More evidence that the left has no idea what is going on in the world. I’m a little torn as to how to react. My Michigan is in the pits. Maybe if this “martyr” had been successful they would have poured money into Detroit like they did with New Orleans.

As to “improperly screened” I guess we will find this terrorist’s passport with Dear Leader’s birth certificate. These a$$clown’s don’t know a thing about screening – unless it is rightwing nuts like me.

haha, the first thing i though about when i saw a picture of janet in her leather jacket being interviewed was that had to be a woman with several pairs of comfortable shoes.

the 9/10 mindset is to give in to terrorist demands. terrorists aren’t suicidal, they have political motivations. if they want the keys to a jumbo jet, let them have it. it’s a new world today, where incompetence isn’t rewarded and actual people in real time will have to pay with their lives for someone’s else incompetence. thank God someone actually reacted instead of being frozen in their seat hoping someone else would act. unfortunately he had to climb and push his way to the terrorist. wasn’t anyone closer ,perhaps, who could’ve stopped the whole incident before it got to the fire phase. i mean pretty much the fire phase is when everyone dies.

all aircraft materials in the cabin are fire retardant, i.e., they will only burn as long as they are subjected to a flame from another source, they won’t continue to burn once that source is removed.
That being said, the real danger here would have been if he would have gotten the explosion he wanted. Only a comedy of errors prevented that from happening.

Nappy was appointed by his royal highnass, which automatically places her in the same category as Mr. McGoo – inability to see what’s in front of them.

She sounds like she was drinking liquid courage with Baucus. Go home to Rosie, Janet.

You know, for the first f–cking time I am speechless. But, you know what’s sad? 1) the fact that when I take a flight in January that I am going to be harassed, forced to take my shoes off, not be allowed to carry any bags onto the plane, and forced to sit in my seat like a criminal for the last hour of the flight, and 2) the fact that next summer gas prices will magically fall (contrast to how they were artificially inflated when Obama was runnin to hurt the Repubs), the Republicans will screw up their message, water it down to placate the media, leqading to the democrats stating in power.

This stupidity will be forgotten as Joe lunchbox enjoys his cheap gas and media bs.

Well yes the system worked, you just have to understand that Page 1 of the “System” is BLAME BUSH!!!, this was accomplished by both Gibbs and Janet in record time. It is in fact such a part of the system that these two start blaming Bush without quite knowing exactly what they are blaming him for.

“Once the incident happened, the system worked”??? Are you kidding me??? I have travelled from Amsterdam to Detroit twice, and they patted me down COMPLETELY. We were all subjected to the humiliation of having every single body part fondled by security. Also, you cannot walk through any part of the Amsterdam airport without passing several security with large guns and gunpowder sniffing dogs. Add to that, we had to show our passports at every point and every passenger had to standin a long line to be personally interviewed as to why we were flying to the US and show our passports AGAIN before we were allowed to board. How the he** did this man get through? It makes me wonder if he was ushered through by a “higher power”.

A passenger claimed that he was sent to a manager type person and then magically passed through without his passport. So he thought a bribe was to blame…

What pile of crap does the liberal machine find these douches under? You would think with all of government from the states to the feds they could find one competent person by accident. I have yet to see anyone with a shred of real intelligence in the entire machine. Talk about rank amateurs, with emphasis on the rank….

Now I do thank you for the quote. It is ridiculous the system worked?

Not only should Janet Nepolitano be fired , she should be sent on a love cruise with Charlie Sheen.

You’re half right Huck. Fired and placed in a small room with no clothes, olive oil and Rosie for 24 hours.
