Yesterday she said "The system worked perfectly." Today she is forced to backpeddle.

“You’re doin’ a helluva job, Brownie Napolitano.” Janet Napolitano, Director of Homeland Surrender, told us that the “passengers and crew did their jobs” (I didn’t know the passengers were employees of the government). Today she is forced to admit, the system didn’t work at all. But it’s Bush’s fault!

It took a tough question from Matt Lauer, but after having laughably claimed that “the system worked,” DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has now conceded the obvious: that the security system that permitted Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to board NWA 253 with explosives “failed miserably.”

On Today and in other interviews this morning, Napolitano attempted to use her own ignorance as a shield.  Each time she was hit with a hard question, her response was to the effect “yeah, we’re wondering about that ourselves.”  She also continued to point the finger back at George Bush, repeatedly mentioning that the security procedures in place were formulated under the Bush administration.  Whatever happened to “change you can believe in”?
