Blankets & Pillows vs Isolated Extremists

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

Submitted by Arlinda DeAngelis (United States), Jan 1, 2010 at 16:45

It was a comfort to know that, in spite of a "systematic breakdown" the "system" worked!!!!! A boy with explosives in his underwear gets on an American Airline without a passport and whose father had warned our embassy that his son had been radicalized in Yemen.

Janet Napolitano, whose expertise is hunting down "returning vets" as the real threat to homeland security, took time out of her busy day to halt the distribution of blankets and pillows. The President declared the whole thing was a man made act of isolated extremism. It took him three days to make several speeches telling us what we already knew. He then ordered an immediate review of everything. Maybe instead of flying to Copenhagen for the Climate, Nobel Peace Prizes and the Olympics and bowing and scraping before every tin horn bedouin dictator and fake royalty from the Middle East, to Japan and flying off to South America for a rendevous with Chavez our dear leader should have been reviewing our security considering it was the season for Islamofasicists to blow us up. Obama went to Hawaii to play golf instead. What an inspiration he is.

The boy and his explosive underwear were taken into custody whereupon he was read his Miranda rights and given a lawyer who then prevented the isolated teenage extremist from revealing any information to save lives.

In the mean time the State Department gave this Islamic lunatic suicide bomber an "open" visa that allowed him to go anywhere in the United States.

Apparently, not even the the bomber's father could convince the State Department, the President, the FBI, the CIA, the Dept. of Homeland Security and the White House of the danger his son posed to the security of the United States. That Abdulah and Hasan the Fort Hood killer shared the same radical hate mongering Imam could not wake the government, its president and it cabinet secretaries out of their stupor.

And, of course, the great leader in the White House again ad nauseum blamed former President George Bush for everything.

The fate of the United States was in the hands of a flying Dutchman whose bravery and quick action stopped an Islamic Jihadist from killing three hundred Americans on a plane on Christmas.
