Janet Napolitano asks for a mulligan

Realizing she had shoved her foot so far into her mouth that she was chewing her ankle, Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano now says the system “failed” when a jihadi and would-be bomber got on board Flight 253:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says the aviation security system failed when a young man on a watch list with a U.S. visa in his pocket and a powerful explosive hidden on his body was allowed to board a fight from Amsterdam to Detroit.

A day after saying the system worked, Napolitano said her words had been taken out of context. She said Monday on NBC’s “Today” show that “our system did not work in this instance.”

Besides, it’s not their fault; they inherited the situation from Bush. Or something.

And here’s video of Janet trying to explain why she’s not an inept bumbler.

Heckuva job, Janet!
