Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is a liar.

ABC News:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says U.S. airports, including Los Angeles International and O’Hare International in Chicago, are already experiencing delays as a result of automatic federal spending cuts.

Both of those big-city airports routinely suffer delays.

Napolitano said Monday that delays will become worse. The Transportation Security Administration and Customs and Border Protection agencies, which are part of the Homeland Security Department, are sending furlough notices and have cut overtime for employees.

Napolitano said she expects a cascading effect during the week, with wait times expected to double in worst cases.

There are a dozen reasons why security lines at those airports are long, not the least of which is the fact that they are two of the busiest airports in the world and at peak travel times, you are likely to wait a little longer than normal. For Napolitano to blame the sequester for normal delays is indicative of what we can expect over the next few weeks and months. Any little thing that goes wrong, or a snafu in some government office, won’t be blamed on lazy, incompetent bureaucrats but on the sequester.

It’s going to get nutty.

Pay no attention to this Politico-Napolitano.

It's win-win: agencies get to blame normal poor performance on an external source and curry favor from the administration. The only risk is the rubes finding out but who are you going to believe? An Official Government Spokesperson, or some rabid, right-wing muckraker who doesn't even work for a "real newspaper"?
