Liar, Liar, pants on fire…

Good morning, Netizens…


Homeland Security’s Janet Napolitano admitted she lied on Sunday’s news talk shows this morning, and I, for one, want to know why she is still in charge of Homeland Security. She admitted this morning that the Homeland Security system failed. Failed? It allowed a person on the watch list aboard a plane destined to the United States with a detectable explosive device, PETN, hidden on his person, and yesterday she stated the system worked?


Forty bazillion Americans stand patiently in line every day waiting to pass through Homeland Security’s security screening at airports around the globe, trusting that they are safe from terrorist threats because they get screened. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is now charged with attempting to blow up a plane from Amsterdam to Detroit. Fortunately, instead of the device hidden in his shorts exploding, he set fire to his pants and, in think-speak, “burned his groin”.


My only comment about Abdulmutallab is, “Ooh, I’ll bet that smarts! Now you’re going to prison.”


My only comment about Napolitano is, “Are you still here?”
