Janet Nappylatino Says Terrorist Threat is at its Most Heightened Level Since 9/11/01
Gee, ten years later and billions of dollars pumped into beefing up security and, according to Janet Nappylatino, we are still at the same threat level as we were on 9/11.
Why is that, I wonder?
Could it be because our government has fatuously decided that Islam is not responsible for the attacks on 9/11?
Could it be because Homeland Security has decided that Americans with anti-abortion bumper stickers on their cars and gadsden flags in their windows are more of a threat to America than Islam and, therefore, have taken their eyes off the ball?
Yup, that just might be the problem right there:
U.S. terror threat at highest since 9/11: Napolitano
(Reuters) – Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Wednesday warned that the threat of terrorism against the United States was in some aspects “at its most heightened state” since the September 11, 2001 attacks.
In addition to the threats by al Qaeda, the militant group behind the attacks nearly a decade ago, Napolitano said the country faces new threats from those inspired by the group and those already inside the United States.
“The terrorist threat facing our country has evolved significantly in the last ten years — and continues to evolve — so that, in some ways, the threat facing us is at its most heightened state since those attacks,” Napolitano said in testimony to the House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee.
She also said that U.S. officials believed there may be individuals who want to carry out attacks already in the country and that “they could carry out acts of violence with little or no warning.”
