    The best gem: When asked why other countries don't make their passengers take their shoes off, "One is, first of all, not all airports in the world face the same threats we face. Everything being done is because of constant continual attempts to try do something to the united states and its aviation system."

    When asked about the deranged JetBlue pilot: "In this instance, i think we can take some small comfort in the fact that this is a highly unusual occurrence and i think that's one of the reasons [why flight crews are not screened the same as passengers]."

    Well, Janet, if you look at the numbers, the proportion of flight crews who have caused disturbances on their planes is far higher over the past decade than the number of passengers who have done the same.

    She does acknowledge --

    "Three things happened that were good there. One is the co-pilot got him out of the cockpit and the cockpit doors are armored. Once they're shut, he can't get back in. That's a major improvement. Secondly, flight crew training is much more robust than it has ever been. from a security standpoint. And then third, and you mentioned it yourself, the passengers understanding they have a role to play here and have played it in the past in other situations."

    Too bad that these items are all that needed to change in airport security.

    And what if the captain had managed to chuck the co-pilot from the cockpit? "... the cockpit doors are armored. Once they're shut, he can't get back in." *

    And what if the captain had been an FFDO and had shot the copilot?

    * This isn't really true. Crews have ways to get in.

    Yea, right! When I read that I said out loud: GMAFB! (not to mention calling her a few choice names under my breath)

    Does this woman have a brain tumor? It seems impossible for someone to be that oblivious unless drugs or disease were a factor.

    So in Secretary Napolitano's world, there is an army of shoe bombers just waiting to strike US planes, but only US planes, and who are only deterred from attacking us because we have to remove our shoes.

    What is her salary?

    Oh, $200,000, according to this page --

    No. That would presuppose the presence of a brain.

    I wonder if the IRS would ever have the balls to take a run at her?

    Oh, we're so special, aren't we?

    "Constant continual attempts" - good heavens Nappy do you really believe what you said?

    Deborah Newell Tornello has just written a post at TSA News about Nappy's (predictably) idiotic replies. Will put it up momentarily.

    Just watch (again) the movie Liar Liar. Seems Nappy has seen it too but didn't take away the point of the movie.

    I'm actually encouraged to see someone like Napolitano succeed: without integrity, without intelligence, without charm, without talent, without grace or attractive traits, without a whit of any redeeming human quality. Yet, there she is. H*ll, there's hope for us all.

    You always seem to find something positive to say, even about such a mental and moral midget as Nappy. I admire that, seriously; I wish I could be more like you! :cool:
