The Gross Incompetence Of TSA and Intelligence In Underpants Bomber Case Is Stunning

Here we are, more than 8 years after 9/11, and we are witness to the gross incompetence displayed by intelligence agencies, the TSA, and the airlines in the case of the Underpants Bomber. Watch these two videos. In the first video, Napolitano states that “the system worked. Everybody played an important role here. The passengers and crew of the flight took appropriate action. Within, literally, an hour to 90 minutes, of the incident occurring, all 128 flights in the air had been notified to take some special measures in light of what had occurred on the Northwest airlines flight.” Here, she not only shows her incompetence, but basically brags about it. Passengers should not have to be responsible for the safety of a flight. That is the job of the TSA. And, if you have a bomb on a plane, obviously the SYSTEM DID NOT WORK! Furthermore, they only notified flights that were inbound from Europe, not domestic flights, and not flights from other locations. Al Qaeda is known for multiple, simultaneous attacks. To not advise every flight is gross incompetence and dereliction of duty. Plus, how could it have taken 60 to 90 minutes to make those notifications? I’ll bet many of the passengers on those flights knew about the attack in less time than that! (And, just think of the problems that could create. I can see it now: “Oh, stewardess, did you know there was a bomb on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit?” “WHAT?? BOMB?? Oh my God, there’s a bomb on the plane…..”)Again, total incompetence. Then, after watching the first video, where Napolitano gives her political doublespeak to hide the systemic failures of the “system”, and to cover up the fact that virtually nothing has been learned since 9/11 except novel new ways to inconvenience and embarrass airline passengers, watch the second video, where the stunning extent of the failures in the system becomes clear. Obama’s first act of 2010 should be to fire Janet Napolitano.

Now, the video that documents the extent of the failures. (Note the s at the end of failure, as in multiple.)
