leave a comment »

Although DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano insists “the system worked,” she flounders badly at simple questions.  She tries to comfort traveling Americans by reminding us that this was just “one individual of literally thousands who fly.”  But if you watch closely, you can see the light bulb turn on when CNN’s Candy Crowley suggests (at 4:20) that just one individual is all it takes to bring a plane full of people down.

H/T Bainbridge.
