Home Land Security – and Janet Napolitano


.Janet Napolitano, the Homeland Security Secretary, had some well-deserved criticism and disapproval (it was a long time coming) for saying to the American public over the weekend that "the system worked" with regards to a Islamic Muslim terrorists effort to blow up the plane he was flying on to Detroit. By Monday, she was backpedalling, (it is hard to back pedal) To try to escape the consequences of her statement by retracting it, and toning it down, acknowledging that "our system did not work in this instance." Does she really know what she is talking about. Does her right hand know what her left hand is doing. The truth of the matter is this: The refocusing of The Department of Homeland Security mission from terrorism began early in Napolitano's term, when In her first appearance before one of the congressional oversight committees, Napolitano didn't even mention the words terrorism or vulnerability, nor did she refer to the 9/11 attacks. She was asked recently to define The Department of Homeland Security's goals, she rattles off nearly a dozen "priorities," from cleaning up after natural disasters to port security, but not once did she mention or say the word TERRORISM. This is the person who Obama has choose to oversee the security of this nation. In fact, homeland security was scarcely mentioned by either candidate. And Obama hasn't expressed his own ideas for the department since taking office. He did take the early first step of folding and doing away with the Homeland Security Council, which advises the president on security issues, inside the larger National Security Council, a move that some saw as pushing some The Department of Homeland Security issues to the back burner as if they were not important. I believe that is hitting the nail right on the head.

The truth about this is: For most Americans, Napolitano has not had any credibility since she tried to ban and forbid the word "terrorism" from the official and authorized text of her department, replacing the word with "a manmade disaster" But the most serious sign that she is not prepared or ready to carry out her duties as the Homeland Security Secretary can be seen in the statement she made on Sunday, (12-27-2009). She told CNN's "State of the Union" that, "Right now, we have no indication, that Abdulmutallab's (the Muslim terrorist) actions were part of anything larger." Is she serious? What turnip truck did she fall off of? Where is her brain? Does she take the American people for fools? Any American that has any brains at all knows that this Muslim terrorist actions were one hundred percent part of something larger and that my friend is called SHARI, a holy war. It is a jihad to bring about the Islamic religion and Shari Law on Muslims and non-Muslims alike based on the Koran.

The question we, as Americans, must ask is this: Are we seeing a remarkable rise in violent jihadism in America. The answer to that is: "yes we are" There had been fourteen attempts in 2009 (compared to two or three in recent years) and they had been increasingly more violent. This is because the jihadist see this present administration as weak. Could the things that Obama has done - such as the closing Guantanamo Bay, the release of some hardened terrorists held there to go to Yemen (where Abdulmuttalab claims he got his plastic explosive device), giving other Muslim Terrorist the right to use to our civilian courts and constitutional rights, and many other things actually will encourage them to believe that murder and chaos will speed up the defeat and take-over of this country. The U.S. government was warned by Abdulmutallab's father at least two months ago that his son had been "radicalized" - in other words, that he had adopted the Islam terrorist views and had embraced Shari. He was transformed from being one of the hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world who are not a problem into one of those who are and will kill you in a heartbeat.

In the awaking view of this latest attack, barely warding off carnage and mass murder at the hands of jihadists, we are being promised executive branch reviews of the practice that has allowed this to happen,. Such re-examining will, however, amount to nothing more than a waste of time and taxpayer money - and possibly a serious distraction for the terrorist. The review will not amount to a hill of beans - It is ridiculous to think that "the system that is in place, now, to protect us is going to do anything other than increase the amount of discomfort for airline passengers as long as it does not weed out and do away with those people who accept as an article of their faith that it is their responsibility and obligation to destroy us.

Nowhere in the disinformation operations provided by this administration is any mention made of the Muslim Brotherhood's self-declared mission in America which the terrorist will state openly. According to an internal Brotherhood premeditated plan that dates back to 1991, is a mission that is: "A jihad that eliminates and destroys the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of other believers so that it is eradicated, destroyed and Allah's religion is made successful over all other religions." As long as Janet Napolitano, Attorney General Eric Holder, the Obama intelligence community, law enforcement, the military, the media and most especially President Obama, himself refuse to acknowledge what brings to life our enemies, we will never will have an successful plan for defeating them, let alone effectively put such a plan into place and execute it successfully.

We must first have a president and a Secretary of Home Land Security that can define the word "TERRORISM". They must first realize that it is not from Americans who peaceably protest the conduct of their government and it is not from our soldiers returning from the war that are the terrorist. It is the Islamic terrorist who would behead you, murder you, blow up the airplane that you are on, bomb the hotel that you are staying in, or if they could nuke a whole city full of innocent people.
