United States Government in Denial That Islamic Terrorists are Evil

"War is scary. Scarier still is a government in denial that evil people are waging war against our country and our civilization."

Janet Napolitano is way out of her depth. It's time to get rid of her and put in a man that will be a fierce warrior against these Islamic terrorists. They need to be fought with bravery and with everything we have - not like we have been fighting - like pansies.

...Our top counterterrorism officials were "shocked" that an "individual" conducted an al-Qaida plot. They must have been asleep when the shoe bomber struck eight years ago. Are they still asleep?

White House counterterrorism czar John O. Brennan and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the two highest-ranking officials charged with protecting America from terrorist attacks, say they failed to see the tree because they were busy looking at the forest.

The two held a joint White House briefing after the president's statement last Thursday. They were asked, "What was the most shocking, stunning thing that you believe came out of the reviews?"

Their answer is what was stunning.

Brennan said that "we had a strategic sense of sort of where they were going, but we didn't know they had progressed to the point of actually launching individuals here. And we have taken that lesson, and so now we're all on top of it."

According to Secretary Napolitano, "the tactic of using an individual to foment an attack, as opposed to a large conspiracy or a multiperson conspiracy such as we saw in 9/11 ... really emphasizes now the renewed importance on how different intelligence is integrated and analyzed, and threat streams are followed through."

They don't call it a war — and they obviously don't consider it to be a war, but rather a law enforcement issue. So why should anyone expect them — or those they supposedly manage and inspire — to act with an urgency that only a war can demand?...READ at IBD
