Today's pitifully stupid comment grand award goes to DHS head Janet Napolitano:
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up the Amsterdam-Detroit flight this week demonstrated that "the system worked."
This woman is the head of Department of Homeland Security. So how safe do you feel now?
Perhaps Secretary Napolitano did not notice that nothing was thwarted. A terrorist managed to get on a plane headed to the US. He managed to smuggle explosives on board. While over US soil, the terrorists attempted to blow up the plane. The explosive was faulty.
Nothing was thwarted.
Oh my goodness, my head hurts.
