Some Thoughts on the Christmas Day Plot

Secretary Napolitano was right that our system worked. Our system, put in place by President George W. Bush and Attorney General Ashcroft, is designed to throw up interference — to increase the probability of failure by our enemies at each step, so that it is unlikely that any attack can actually√ā¬†succeed. And this is what happened. Mistakes were made, but their system is more brittle than ours, so we win.

Even liberal Republicans are attacking DHSSec Napolitano for her words, so she may not be long for government work. It may be that she has simply failed to thrive, Republicans want a scalp, and Democrats want a DHS Secretary who won’t be a liability when they get around to fighting for comprehensive immigration reform.

  1. Agreed on the system working, especially the common citizens doing their part.
    She’ll head over to the Justice Dept. to work for Holder, befitting her experience as a successful prosecutor. I would not be surprised to see her heading the portfolio for going after businesses that hire illegals as part of their business plan, a major emphasis of the Obama Admin’s immigration policy thus far.

  2. Perhaps we can have a pool for her post-dismissal career?

    I imagine she’ll go into professional influence peddling.

    Putting employers in the sick catch-22 of criminalizing both the hiring of illegal immigrants, and the rejection of forged documents, is no better than what I would expect of Obama.
