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