Napolitano Changes Her Mind
Apotropaically, partheopaically, Janet Napolitano, who yesterday said that the security system "worked really very, very smoothly" suddenly -- everyone was calling for her head -- changes her mind:
Napolitano concedes airline security system failed
The Obama administration has ordered investigations into the two areas of aviation security — how travelers are placed on watch lists and how passengers are screened — as critics questioned how the 23-year-old Nigerian man charged in the airliner attack was allowed to board the Dec. 25 flight.
A day after saying the system worked, Napolitano backtracked, saying her words had been taken out of context.
"Our system did not work in this instance," she said on NBC's "Today" show. "No one is happy or satisfied with that. An extensive review is under way."
