Can we all agree that Janet Napolitano is an idiot?

Regarding the attempted Christmas Day bombing of NWA Flight 253 by a Nigerian jihadi, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up an Amsterdam-Detroit airline flight Christmas Day demonstrated that “the system worked.”

I suppose that’s true, if your “system” involves a brave Dutch passenger and an improperly constructed bomb. Worked like a charm, Madame Secretary. Indeed, the design shows a Wile E. Coyote level of genius!

Of course, this is the same Secretary Napolitano who issued the infamous right-wing extremists report that was such a  shoddy piece of work it wouldn’t have even passed a freshman remedial research course, so perhaps we should have expected such a boneheaded statement.

Oh, and I suppose the system was working today when another Nigerian went nuts and had to be pulled off the same flight? (UPDATE: He may have been legit … or it may have been another dry run.)

I feel so secure about flying. Don’t you? Nailbiting

(via QandO)

RELATED: Michelle Malkin adds another item to the myth of the poor, oppressed jihadist. ABC News explores the Yemen connection. (It’s kind of hard to be working alone when al Qaeda builds the bomb for you…) In fact, he may have links to the imam who was the spiritual mentor to Major Hasan, the jihadi behind the Ft. Hood massacre. He was certainly on a list, but why not the no-fly list? By the way, the bomber’s father tried to warn us. Meanwhile, Scotland Yard is looking into a possible UK connection. Richard Fernandez looks at the plane’s schematics to determine just what Abdul Mudallad had in mind. Fausta calls it the Flying Dutchman Security System. Finally, via The Jawa Report we get a link to a video about binary explosives and how little is needed to cause a lot of damage.

Let’s all say it together, now:  They’re still trying to kill us.

UPDATE: Jonah Goldberg wants this “patently unqualified hack” fired.

    I think when they say “the system worked” they mean the ticketholders who were prevented from or delayed in boarding for having larger-than-regulation shampoo bottles. Give em some credit! They’re hella strict about those damn shampoo bottles.
