The System Worked

Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano, the least of the less than impressive cabinet to President Obama, said during an interview about the rich, Nigerian wannabe terrorist, Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, who had been outed as such by his father a month ago and who failed to blow up a plane because of his faulty equipment and heroic efforts by passengers (particularly by Jasper Schuringa) that in this case the "system worked."


The State Department did not revoke the terrorist's visa. The vaunted home security system did not move the terrorist from the terrorist watch list (nearly half a billion names long) to the no fly list (with just 4,000 names) and the trained government officials at two airports did not detect the explosives. The only reason the plane did not drop burning from the sky is that the detonator failed and a few of the passengers acted quickly and well.

Heck of a system ya' got there, Nappie.

Michelle Malkin has a reminder of how truly, truly terrible at her job Ms. Napolitano has been.
