Homeland Security Sec. Napolitano Surprised at "Al-Qaeda's Determination"; That they Would Use Individual to "Foment an Attack" - Video
Here is video of our Homeland Security Secretary - Janet Napolitano - as well as Deputy National Security Adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism John Brennan, talking to the media day before yesterday about the threat we face from Al-Qaeda. It was almost missed that when asked what was the most surprising thing to them about the attempted attack on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on Christmas Day, Napolitano actually said "besides the determination of Al-Qaeda," it was the "tactic of using an individual to foment an attack."
Unbelievably, she was surprised that Al-Qaeda is "determined," and that they would use a single person to carry out an attack! This shows that those taking the lead in our security simply don't understand the enemy we face. If they faced the fact we are facing a religiously motivated enemy who believe Jihad is the pathway to heaven and glory for themselves, they would not be surprised at the "dedication" of our enemy. Terrorist Suicide bombers have carried out attacks all over the world as single individuals, yet Napolitano is surprised. I'm afraid we are in for a very long three more years.
