Honolulu, We Have a Problem

* Posted December 30th, 2009 at 11.38am

From The Heritage Foundation:
http://blog.heritage.org/2009/12/30...have-a-problem/

Their was a “systemic failure” declared the president yesterday (implying the system set up under George W. Bush). That declaration gets Obama off the hook. It also shows the White House doesn’t understand the problem and doesn’t know how to address it.

When these things happen the “system” will always be the problem. That’s because enemies are dynamic…they adopt, innovate, and improvise. If the system just chugs along eventually they will find a way to beat it. As the crotch bomber did a Christmas Day Detroit bound flight.

Still, politicians like to blame ”systems” because then nobody can be held accountable. Also, then they have something to do—“fix” the system. That’s a politically convenient cop-out. Blame the last guy! Blame the system! Spend more money to “fix” the system and hope the next attack doesn’t happen on your watch. Frankly, that’s what the White House strategy sounds like.

The right answer is stopping the terrorists well before take-off. That means getting as far before the “boom” as possible. The difference between the crotch bomber and the 2006 London-based plot to dispatch teams of “liquid” bombers on international flights to the US could not be more stark. In 2006, intelligence uncovered the plot, Homeland security devised countermeasures, and the bad guys were stopped long before the bomb. In 2009, we just got lucky. This is moving backwards. That’s not the fault of the system. That’s the fault of our leaders.

Consider this. What would have happened if this terrorist had been successful in killing everyone on board and a bunch of people on the ground.

Would we have found out the truth? There's a good chance our lying administration would have buried the truth.

They continually refuse to admit the jailed terrorist is Muslim jihadist.

The only people that might have told the truth would be the terrorists who wanted the credit.

Wait, did I just say we might get more accurate information from terrorist? Sick world.
