What really frickin' pissed me off was their knee jerk reaction that everything is fine. 'Oh! It worked!" Who in the hell do they think we are?

Now that everyone is climbing all over them, they're saying, 'It didn't work the way it should have and none of us are happy with it...'

Really? So what are they going to do? They're going to CYA and everything will be business as usual. There IS going to be another Terrorist attack, a successful one. And this administration is going to sit there with a deer in the headlights look. Expect no competent leadership... because we don't have it.

The ignorance and complacency of this administration to the real threats to Americans boggles the mind. But what do you expect out of an administration that thought 'Cash for Clunkers' would help rescue a failing economy? This administration is so ego-centric that they can't conceive of needs outside of their own immediate political gain. In other words, they've just told us to go F*** ourselves, because they will be safe in their own compounds, with private jets, in their own affluent, bigoted world.

You go girl! I guess this is Obama's "You're doing a heckuva job Brownie" moment.

Your pissed?!

Try living 10 minutes and in the landing flight path of said airport in which they tried to blow-up the plane?

Or having almost all your friends and family in the same circumstances.

If that plane would have blown-up and rained down upon the neighborhoods surrounding the airport I would have lost a few friends/family that day.

I didn't hear about it until 8pm that night because no news stations had any information on about it during the day. It freaked me out totally, so now I have another thing to flinch about when a low plane flies overhead.

(in my old hood a small commuter plane crashed 4 houses down from us, I still flinch at low flying planes and it doesn't help I live in the landing flight path of Detroit Metro and Willow Run airport)

And btw, Detroits airport isn't anywhere near Detroit. It's at least 30 minutes west of Detroit right in the middle of the suburbs.

"Leaders'" immediate and instinctive action in any crisis is to act like everything's under control, whether it is or not. "You're supposed to have all the answers, so act like it."

I wouldn't be so eager to blame the problem on Obama. After 9/11, Congress decided to spend a LOT of money on "security improvments." Congressfolk from BOTH parties promptly proceeded to turn it into a pork-barrel grab bag, with much of the money spent in places under no threat of attack or on stuff unrelated to security.

There WILL be another attack. Bush and Cheney predicted one throughout their term. There's no way our ponderous, hysterically inefficent system can prevent it.

@ George,
You are right on the money, I was pointing out an example of such to a friend just yesterday.

I know of someone who got the Federal Government to buy him a $60K Tow Truck, in case a 9-11 type event ever happened in Mobile, AL. It has never been used, guess who it will benefit when it is considered too old for Federal service..???

I'm no fan of the current dip shit, but both parties have a hand in this mess.

Napolitano needs to be fired. "The system worked," my ass.

The worst part is, we won't have learned anything. Instead of screening the same stupid way, we need to start learning some lessons from the masters of the game: the Israelis. You don't need to take nail clippers away from little old ladies when your security protocol involves asking a lot of uncomfortable, nasty questions - and paying as much attention to your reactions as to your answers - and not being embarrassed about profiling.
