NY Post Editorials Hit Hard Against the Administration and Nat'l
Two brilliant hard-hitting editorials appeared in the New York Post
today addressing the botched terrorist attack aboard the Northwestern
flight. The pieces focused on the government’s actions both before and
after the attack, for which they get an F:
December 29, 2009
On Planet Janet
President Obama yesterday pulled his head out of the sand long enough
to promise a thorough review of US se curity practices after the near-
suicide bombing of a commercial airliner over Detroit on Christmas
Then he stuck it right back in.
Obama, in a brief address from Hawaii, did manage to utter the “T”
word: “A full investigation has been launched into this attempted act
of terrorism.” But he refused to define the nature of the threat. …
Yesterday, Obama termed Abdulmutallab “an isolated extremist.”
Really? Is that all?
The bomber’s own father warned US officials in October that his son
had fallen in with Islamic radicals.
Abdulmutallab himself reportedly told federal officials he trained
with al Qaeda in Yemen—and, for what it’s worth, al Qaeda in Yemen
And ABC News reported yesterday that two of Abdulmutallab’s Yemeni
trainers had been released from Guantanamo Bay to the Saudis in 2007—
and then set free after (no joke) “art therapy rehabilitation.”
Meanwhile, Brian Jenkins of the Rand Corporation reports 12 incidents
of Islamist terror either in the United States or involving Americans
abroad in 2009, the most in any year since 9/11. (These include the
Fort Hood massacre.) …
But wait! I thought radical Muslims hated us because of that
swaggering cowboy George W. Bush! I thought that once The One was
president, the poow tewwowists were gonna love us again. Wot hoppen???
“Those who would attack our country” is how he described the jihadis—a
formulation he used four times in his brief address.
But if the president refuses to define the enemy, how can he expect
America to defend against that enemy?
No wonder Napolitano is so confused.
No reasonable person believes that terror screening can ever be
foolproof. But Americans need full confidence that their government is
addressing the problem as vigorously as possible.
This would require Obama to order two basic changes in anti-terror
* Captured terrorists need to be treated as such—and not as common
criminals. Abdulmutallab needs to disappear down a black hole
somewhere, and stay there until the war on terror is over. No criminal
trials for terrorists.
* Homeland Security needs to quit pretending little old ladies from
the heartland pose a security threat and institute an intelligent
traveler-profiling policy that targets Middle Eastern males. …
Amen! But these two strategies are so patently obvious and so arguably
more effective in our war against radical Islam that the Obama
administration would never do it. Not an airplane blown to a million
bits in the sky, not a mushroom cloud over Manhattan, not a … um,
bloody massacre at a military base on our very soil will make our hate-
America president and his hate-America staff do one thing different.
Other than make life way more inconvenient for everybody else.
