I love the part about the “criminal justice investigation,” because as we all know, the best way to deal with terrorism man-caused disasters is to wait until after something happens and then put the perpetrator in jail. Credit to CNN’s Candy Crowley for pointing out to the clueless Napolitano that “the reason this plane did not explode is because the explosion failed,” not because any “system” the feds or the airlines have in place actually did anything. It didn’t.
Maybe the Obama administration’s counter-terrorism counter-man-caused-disaster plan is to hope that only the inept terrorists try to attack us.
