Incompetent Homeland Hack: Uh, I Misquoted Myself or Something

Why on earth this woman still has a job is beyond me.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano conceded Monday that the aviation security system failed when a young man on a watchlist with a U.S. visa in his pocket and a powerful explosive hidden on his body was allowed to board a fight from Amsterdam to Detroit.

The Obama administration has ordered investigations into the two areas of aviation security — how travelers are placed on watch lists and how passengers are screened — as critics questioned how the 23-year-old Nigerian man charged in the airliner attack was allowed to board the Dec. 25 flight.

A day after saying the system worked, Napolitano backtracked, saying her words had been taken out of context.
Here are her exact words.
On Sunday, Napolitano said, “One thing I’d like to point out is that the system worked.”
It wasn't until widespread ridicule and condemnation someone obviously got to her. Probably Obama's boss David Axelrod.

Obama, meanwhile, continues to golf and luxuriate in Hawaii, not a concern in the world for anyone but himself, naturally. He'll have a statement maybe at some point, once his handlers can load it into his TelePrompter.

I feel so secure with this crew in charge.

In the meantime, can someone point out how exactly Napolitano is qualified for her job, outside of affirmative action?

If indeed they must have a woman on the job, maybe Sarah Palin can help bail these buffoons out.

Update: Hmmmm. Nothing to worry about I guess. The system is working. Or so we're supposed to believe.
The ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee on Monday said the Obama administration has drawn an "iron curtain" when it comes to providing information to members of Congress regarding the attempted Christmas Day terror attack.

"It's very hard, even for me being on the Homeland Security Committee and the Intelligence Committee, to get any information out of this administration. We're still trying to find out what happened at Ft. Hood, they won't give us information on that," Rep. Peter King (R-NY) told Fox News Monday morning.

King also criticized White House officials for not speaking out on last Friday's incident yet.

"We're now what, 72 hours into this? And the President has not spoken, the Vice President has not spoken, the Attorney General has not spoken and Janet Napolitano has now told two different stories in two days," he said to Fox referring to the Secretary of Homeland Security.
Yeah, but he told this to Fox, so it's not real news as told to us by the Obamatons.

Ironic, isn't it, that Obama has been on television nonstop for three years but all of a sudden is camera shy. Maybe he's got a creeping sense of shame.
