It's pretty clear Obama intentionally picked a weakling to minimize further efforts to strengthen security. This situation is most embarassing for him since he has been dampening Muslin animosity. The last thing he needs is dealing with periodic Muslim terror plots.
At first, I thought this may have been CIA special ops gone awry. By that I mean, if you want to root out evil, you need a means to lead you to it. By letting the guy in, they could monitor who he communicates with. Downside the guy pried open a gap in airline security. Now that is something you will never hear admitted in the news. Unfortunately, this bimbo gives me the impression it was in fact a screw up. In many ways it is like Bush being criticized for 911. He was only in office 9 months and had not gotten around to replacing anyone the FBI or CIA. Well Obama just installed the bimbo, she's still learning the system. That is perfectly underatandable, but by playing with words and trying jsutify actions, she eliminated any faith I had up till now in Homeland Administration. After seeing the personality that is leading the effort, no doubt the terrorist community will look at the US as open for business.
