Homeland Security Secretary Pulls A (Neville) Chamberlain

Hat tip to reader Crosspatch for pointing out what has to be the dumbest statement by a national leader in a century. Not since Britain’s Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain came back from a meeting with Adolf Hitler to declare peace was at hand (when in actuality World War II was about to begin and kill millions upon millions of people) have we seen such blind incompetence on display.

After missing or ignoring a warning by the terrorist’s own father that his son was in the throws of Islamo Fascist jihad, and after barely averting the massacre of a couple hundred innocent Americans by the sheer luck that the bomber failed to detonate his device correctly, Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano had this gem of stupidity to offer:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up an Amsterdam-Detroit airline flight Christmas Day demonstrated that “the system worked.”

President Obama needs to fire this idiot – now! The system did NOT work. A man who has been on the terrorist watch list for 2 YEARS was able to book a flight to America. A man whose own father contacted American authorities 6 months ago because he feared his son was about to do something horrible, was able to smuggle a very deadly and powerful binary explosive onto a crowded commercial airline on Christmas day.

If not for a failure to mix the bomb materials correctly there would be 200 plus dead people scattered over Detroit.

The system FAILED madam Secretary. You failed. And your blatantly ignorant attempt to cover this all up by claiming the “system worked” is all the proof we need you are not the person for the job you hold. Mr. President, fire this incompetent buffoon tomorrow, before the system really “works” and more American lives are lost.

Update: Ed Morrissey is running a poll on this lunacy – stop by and give your vote. Plus Jonah Goldberg agrees with AJStrata – fire the woman.
