Director of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano either doesn't get it, or is dumber than toast. Today President Obama's choice to protect us from terrorism appeared on CNN and proved that she does not belong in her position.
Napolitano, said it was too early to speculate on the claims of Al Qaeda connections made by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the 23-year-old Nigerian held in connection with the incident. After his arrest in Detroit, Abdulmutallab said he had obtained a specialized explosive chemical compound and a syringe sewn into his underwear from a bomb expert in Yemen associated with the terror network, according to authorities. Napolitano said that "right now we have no indication that it is part of anything larger." All this seems pretty reasonable, but then she started going off the deep end.

Got to watch those US veterans tho.
Well, Napolitano has more important priorities, like ensuring there is no anti-Muslim backlash.
These guys could surgically implant explosives, we don’t xray people.
Ultimately, the only solution is to keep these people off planes, PC Technology isn’t ever going to work.
It’s pretty clear that Napolitano is trying to cover up for someone.
Dumb as toast? You give toast a bad rap here...
Good grief! Is that person being
Your picture is not of an X-ray. Its a millimeter wave radar. It can penetrate clothing, but not the skin. The TSA has these systems and has approved them for use, but they has been installed in only a few airports. Had this system been in use in Amsterdam, the bomb would have almost certainly been discovered.
You know, I think you're absolutely right. With no satire.
Dumb as toast... or smart as Janet Reno?
It looks like to me that she has a rather unusual ponytail.
Maybe it’s way past time for Napolitano to be fired. She is as incompetent as can be.
you are right-I apologize to toast
Yes Hubby and I decided today that he probably burnt them really really well and we were hoping that whoever cleaned them at the hospital were none too gentle. You really have to scub out burns to make sure they are clean you know!
Millimeter wave radar will not detect explosives hidden in body cavities. There are machines to check for nitrate residues, including sprays that can be sprayed on hands to detect residue.
We should make sure that the sprays have a slight residue of pig fat to let them know they have brought on themselves a bad result.
