News Alert to Madam in Charge of Homeland Security: Terrorists Are NOT Routine Criminals

Really the only thing today between American Citizens and terrorists are brave individuals like the the man that fought to prevent the blow-up of Northwest flight 253 flying from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas day. Napolitano had nothing to do with it even though she appears to shamelessly be taking credit for it. They are going to treat this case as a routine criminal case when it's actually and everyone else knows it, a terrorist case. This makes it harder to prosecute and gives more protection to the terrorist. Why is the Obama administration doing this? Why is every evil coddled and protected by this administration? Why? Napolitano says that the system worked...amazing the chutzpah of this woman. No, you are wrong Janet and you know it. It was only because of the passengers and one in particular that thwarted the plan of a killer.

A U.S. government that has barred the phrase "war on terror" has nonetheless acknowledged that a failed Christmas day bomb attack on an airliner was a terrorist attempt. Can we all now drop the pretense that we stopped fighting a war once Dick Cheney and George W. Bush left the White House?

The attempt by 23-year-old Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab follows the alleged murders in Ft. Hood, Texas by Islamist-inspired Major Nidal Hasan in November. Brian Jenkins, who studies terrorism for the Rand Corporation, says there were more terror incidents (12), including thwarted plots, on U.S. soil in 2009 than in any year since 2001. The jihadists don't seem to like Americans any better because we're closing down Guantanamo.

This increasing terror tempo makes the Obama Administration's reflexive impulse to treat terrorists like routine criminal suspects all the more worrisome. It immediately indicted Mr. Abdulmutallab on criminal charges of trying to destroy an aircraft, despite reports that he told officials he had ties to al Qaeda and had picked up his PETN explosive in Yemen. The charges mean the Nigerian can only be interrogated like any other defendant in a criminal case, subject to having a lawyer present and his Miranda rights read.
