Even WaPo Knows Napolitano's System is Broken

Quoting The Washington Post
(emphasis mine):
“THE THWARTED Christmas Day airplane bombing raises three causes for alarm. First, it illustrates a screening system that remains porous enough to let a suspect board with the same explosive shoe-bomber Richard Reid attempted to use in 2001. Second, it exposes a terrorism bureaucracy too clumsy to catapult the suspect, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, at least to a higher level of preflight scrutiny after his father came forward with warnings that he might pose a danger. Third, if it is true that the suspect received explosives training from al-Qaeda in Yemen, the incident underscores the emergence of that troubled nation as a training ground for terrorists. To that initial list, we would add a fourth: the disturbingly defensive reaction of the Obama administration.”

[Uh, WaPo, HELLO…
When has the Obama administration ever shown anything OTHER than arrogance, ignorance, incompetence, corruption, tyranny, dishonesty and defensiveness?]

“it is hardly reassuring to argue, as Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano did on ABC's ‘This Week,’ that ‘once the incident occurred, the system worked.’ The attack was averted because of the luck of a faulty detonator and the quick response of alert passengers. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the president has ordered a review into ‘did the government do everything that it could have with the information that they had?’ The answer to that question seems obvious.

Kudos to WaPo for this editorial.]
