I Take it Back

It looks like I can blame the Administration after all. Thanks, AP:

WASHINGTON Two federal agencies charged with keeping potential terrorists off airplanes and out of the country have been without their top leaders for nearly a year.

It took the Obama administration more than eight months to nominate anyone to lead the Transportation Security Administration and the Customs and Border Protection agency.

President Barack Obama has ordered a review of U.S. security policies following the failed Christmas Day attack on a Detroit-bound flight from Amsterdam. He vowed Monday to "do everything that we can to keep America safe."

We would not have gone with a health care czar for eight weeks. Yet, those stupid, time-wasting, enumerated powers...

Obama will "do everything that we can to keep America safe." That means "starting now." Ergo, until this time his administration has not been doing everything it can.

The system worked perfectly Perry! Now if we can just post a Dutch filmaker on every flight...

I'm brainstorming an "air traveler safety kit" that includes a "Citizen TSA Agent - Deputized by Janet Napolitano" T-shirt and a pair of fire resistant gloves.
