Don't Worry: Big Sis & Crew Are On the Job "24/7, 364 Days A Year". Wait, What?

And when they're working, they always give at least 99.72%!
“What I say to the American people is that we are, thousands of people are working 24/7, 364 days a year to keep the American people safe.”

Still, a little 'CYA' never hurts. So J-Nap quickly points out that she can't just "hermetically seal" the United States, and James Clapper chimes in that they "aren't going to bat 1.000, necessarily" when it comes to stopping terror attacks on U.S. soil.

Indeed. But I think I'd feel just a tad better if Homeland Security officials would categorically reject the inevitability of future casualties on U.S. soil at the hands of terrorists, and leave the fatalistic pontificating to the pundits.
