Justifying Your Job

Reader comment on item: The System "Worked Really Very, Very Smoothly" in Detroit?

Submitted by Ronnie (United States), Dec 28, 2009 at 18:18

Janet Napolitano, like most Americans in this economic quagmire, a.k.a. Depression, is merely justifying her job. If she admits to counter-terrorism failures, she then is saying that she personally has failed. And we wouldn't want that, now would we? Janet Napolitano's personal failure? This therefore is the leader of America's Homeland Security. What if all those airline passengers had died from a terrorist act? An investigation would have been held, first of all, to determine what could have possibly caused the explosion and crash and demise of this Northwest Airlines flight because there would not have been any witnesses...Right? CAIR would have decried the soon disclosed terrorist act, but would have immediately jumped on the "Careful not to profile, blame, or have racist feelings against Moslems" bandwagon. This would have put all the American "appeasers" on the defensive, for we do not want to be "racist." Heaven forbid! Forget the fact that almost every single terrorist attack perpetrated in the last 30 years has been carried out by Moslems.

So here's my take: YES, you bet your ... we are going to profile. And further, we are going to stop quoting CAIR, which is a front for HAMAS, a terrorist organization. And further, we are going to stop quoting any Moslem group, because YES, our profiling measures include profiling of any purportedly "Pro-peace Moslem front organization" that has its offices in the United States of America. Also, I would investigate and seize assets of all organizations that send ANY money to Moslem terrorist groups ANYWHERE. And then I would have the people in these organizations deported. This profiling would also include any Moslem on any terrorist list or any list. Of course, I would offer the obvious defensive measure to the American Moslem community and to all Moslem communities worldwide: Why don't you all hit the streets and decry the violence of your Moslem brothers? You could carry American flags and sing "God Bless America" for that added touch of trust that people in the west need so badly from your communities. All I hear though, is silence. Deafening silence.
