Note how she was asked about "Islamist terrorism" but she trimmed it down to just "terrorism", the leftist can't even bring herself to mention the two words together. Fortunately she didn't lecture us on how Islam is a religion of peace and how Islamist savages across this planet just misinterpreted their glorious religion.Spiegel Online - Janet Napolitano, 51, is President Obama's new Homeland Security Secretary. She spoke with SPIEGEL about immigration, the continued threat of terrorism and the changing tone in Washington.
SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?
Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur. Hat tip Andrew Bolt.
So there ya go folks, a couple of Muslim scumbags flying planes into buildings murdering thousands is a 'disaster'! You know, like some drunken fool opened the dam gates and caused a flood or something. Like someone dropped their cigarette in bed and burnt their block of flats down, oh what a disaster! It can't be helped people, just happens you know. I'm no gifted orator or community organizer and I don't have a tele-prompter but I can tell you this much, I wouldn't let this nuanced buffoon anywhere near the Homeland Security building, let alone work in the bloody thing.
If this is the calibre of people who are in charge of preventing the next 9/11, I'd avoid crowded places where possible if I were an American, because this is a joke people, a stupid, unfunny, dangerous joke.
