Under Dem Rule, No One at the Wheel at Key Anti-Terror Agencies

Why are we left to rely on private Dutch citizens and random luck to spare us from major terror attacks? Because under the regime of Hope & Change, there is literally no one running our security agencies. It seems our socialist rulers have been too busy nationalizing the healthcare industry to see to the defense of the citizenry whose wishes they so openly despise.

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. …

Bogged down with health care reform, the Senate has yet to set a date to hold hearings for the Customs position.

Given a competent government that made our security a priority, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab would never have been allowed near the airliner he almost blew out of the sky on Christmas Day.

He was able to maintain a valid U.S. visa despite warnings about him to U.S. embassy officials in Nigeria from his father. … The embassy visit in which Abdulmutallab’s father said he was concerned about his son’s radicalization triggered a Nov. 20 State Department cable from Nigeria to all U.S. diplomatic missions and department headquarters in Washington. It was also shared with the interagency National Counter Terrorism Center, said State Department spokesman Ian Kelly.

But apparently no one at our leaderless intelligence agencies thought that was reason enough to prevent him from boarding a plane to our country while waving red flags left and right by paying cash for a one-way ticket and bringing no luggage except the explosives in his underwear. Even Britain — hardly famous for defending its borders from Muslims — had denied Abdulmutallab entry.

One of the many reasons Obama’s election was not just foolish but contemptible was the attitude it expressed toward the war being waged against us by Islamic terrorists. Liberals actually seem to believe that the bad guys will leave us alone if we appease them by electing a guy with a Muslim name and background who clearly has no interest in fighting them. Apparently even a cretin like Abdulmutallab is smarter than your average Democrat; at least he realizes that loathsome apologies on behalf of his country by a belly-crawling politician may be worth a Nobel Peace Prize, but they won’t reconcile America and imperialist Islam.

Surprise: letting this clown run the country didn’t make terrorists like us.
