Incompetence in Government

February 3rd, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

The American Spectator has a good article on incompetence in the Obama Administration and lack of accountability. It succinctly tells why Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism John Brennan, Attorney General Eric Holder, and Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair should all have resigned because of the underwear bomber’s handling.

Napolitano: “The system worked…”

Brennan: “Though all of that information was available to all-source analysts at the CIA and the [National Counterterrorism Center] prior to the attempted attack, the dots were never connected, and as a result, the problem appears to be more about a component failure to “connect the dots,” rather than a lack of information sharing.” That means its *his* fault.

Holder: “The first FBI agents on the scene interrogated Abdulmutallab for about fifty minutes before the Holder Justice Department intervened from Washington and instructed a team of new agents to read Abdulmutallab his Miranda rights….”

Blair: He said the HIG should have been helping deal with the bombing, but “…not only is the HIG, as Blair himself later clarified, not yet operational, but it had not been operational since President Obama mandated its creation in August of 2009 — information that one would hope the Director of National Intelligence can keep straight in assessing what went wrong.”
