Janet Napolitano... is an imbecile... and anyone with a first grade education can see it immediately.

Don't worry... I know that Napolitano Now Says Terror Prevention System ‘Failed Miserably’... and if you can stomach it... she tries to say that only the "response" to the failed terrorists assault worked... not the part about "preventing" a terrorist attack.

Well... Madam Secretary... how is booking the terrorist as a common "criminal" an appropriate "response" to an admitted terrorist attempt?... and as the Wall Street Journal points out... there have now been MORE terrorist attacks and attempts at terrorist attacks in the POTUS's first year in the White House than any other year since 9/11.

Madam Secretary... you are a dismal failure and you and this administration are going to get a lot of people in the United States killed.

With thanks to Rick for the heads up to the WSJ article.

Wall Street Journal
The Terror This Time
Janet Napolitano says the system worked. No, we were brave and lucky.

A U.S. government that has barred the phrase "war on terror" has nonetheless acknowledged that a failed Christmas day bomb attack on an airliner was a terrorist attempt. Can we all now drop the pretense that we stopped fighting a war once Dick Cheney and George W. Bush left the White House?

The attempt by 23-year-old Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab follows the alleged murders in Ft. Hood, Texas by Islamist-inspired Major Nidal Hasan in November. Brian Jenkins, who studies terrorism for the Rand Corporation, says there were more terror incidents (12), including thwarted plots, on U.S. soil in 2009 than in any year since 2001. The jihadists don't seem to like Americans any better because we're closing down Guantanamo.

This increasing terror tempo makes the Obama Administration's reflexive impulse to treat terrorists like routine criminal suspects all the more worrisome. It immediately indicted Mr. Abdulmutallab on criminal charges of trying to destroy an aircraft, despite reports that he told officials he had ties to al Qaeda and had picked up his PETN explosive in Yemen. The charges mean the Nigerian can only be interrogated like any other defendant in a criminal case, subject to having a lawyer present and his Miranda rights read.

Yet he is precisely the kind of illegal enemy combatant who should be interrogated first with the goal of preventing future attacks and learning more about terror networks rather than gaining a single conviction. We now have to hope he cooperates voluntarily.

Janet Napolitano, the secretary of homeland security, told CNN yesterday that "one thing I'd like to point out is that the system worked." Yet the terrorist screening system seems to have failed in at least two crucial ways: first, in failing to revoke a visa to the U.S. that Mr. Abdulmutallab had obtained last June despite a later warning to U.S. consular officials from his own father that he was becoming radicalized and might have terror network ties; and second, in not adding him to a no-fly list from a lower-level watch list.....

Gosh Janet... it is really embarrassing to have the head of US Homeland Security act like a kindergarten child caught with her hand in the cookie jar... and trying to excuse her way out of it.

We have a dismal rookie in charge of protecting our homeland... that can't even lie well... (Well... she is only following orders from above...)

Consider and ponder.
