Secretary’s departure good

It is good to see Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano leave her post.

This woman is almost as delusional as her boss, the guy who believed the Muslim Brotherhood would lead Egypt into a thriving constitutional republic and that the Syrian rebels are good guys.

Napolitano referred to terrorist acts as “man-caused disasters.” She called the global war on terror an “overseas contingency operation.” She called the Ft. Hood massacre “an instance of workplace violence.”

She also tried to take credit for stopping the underwear bomber on Northwest Airlines Flight 253, saying “the system worked.” If the “system” is to hope all terrorists are stupid, we need a new system. The battle against Radical Islamists will never be won by burying our collective heads in the sand and giving apology speeches in Cairo. Unless our president and his chosen department heads take the time to study Sharia Law and realize worldwide domination is the goal of today’s Islamic terrorist groups, these organizations will grow more courageous and encouraged to destabilize the world.

Al-Qaeda must be sad to see Janet leave.
