Delta Airlines Terror: Fire Janet Napolitano Now

If the election were being held today in the light of the terrorism on the Delta flight from Amsterdam, I have little doubt that John McCain – whatever his deficiencies as a candidate – would have been elected president, possibly in a landslide. Who would want Barack Obama now – or his bizarre collection of czars and advisers, including Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano?

Hours after the near disaster on the Delta flight, up popped the very Napolitano with the following statement: “I am grateful to the passengers and crew aboard Northwest Flight 253 who reacted quickly and heroically to an incident that could have had tragic results.”

Well, thanks a bunch, Janet. They certainly were heroic. But why did they even have to do it in the first place? What was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab doing on that plane anyway when he was already apparently on the terror watch list and his own father had given warnings to the US Embassy of his son’s religious extremism only a month before? Any comment about that?

Oh, I forgot, Janet. There’s no such thing as terrorism in your parlance. There’s probably no such thing to you as Radical Islam either. It’s all lost in some haze of reactionary political correctness. Problem is we are surrounded by Radical Islamic Terrorists (they’re the only ones who ever seem to blow up planes or mass murder our troops right on their bases) and you are totally unqualified to defend us from them. You don’t even think they exist.

But perhaps you are a perfect match for our reactionary narcissist president who continues to say not a word as the brave demonstrators in Iran again risk their lives to overcome their brutal Islamic regime. What’s interesting about Obama and Napolitano is that they pretend to be “progressive,” but they are actually heartless.
