John Murtha, 12/22/09: "Al-Qaeda Not a Threat"

With the nation enthralled by Janet Napolitano's "the system worked" assclownery (heckuva job, Napi!), we are missing a classic foot-in-mouth blunder by King Pork himself, John Murtha, who just days ago, said the following:


JOHNSTOWN December 22, 2009 ( - U.S. Rep. John Murtha told reporters Tuesday that he isn’t convinced al-Qaida is still a threat to national security.

Mr. Murtha: I don’t agree there is a threat to national security.

72 hours later, Murtha was proven the fool as only a poor detonator and a heroic passenger saved a Northwest jet from being vaporized by an al-Qaeda operative. No threat to national security, huh?

ABC News reports:

American officials have cause to worry there may be more al Qaeda-trained young men in Yemen planning to bring down American jets. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab told FBI agents there are more just like him in Yemen. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, charged with the attempted Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Airlines flight 253, told FBI agents there were more just like him in Yemen who would strike soon.

But they're not a threat, right, Mr. Murtha?

And one wonders if Jan-Nap was aware of the information above when she made the statement below:

Janet Napolitano, the Homeland Security secretary, said on Sunday that there was so far no evidence of a wider terrorist plot in what federal authorities said was an attempt by a 23-year-old Nigerian man to blow up a Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas Day.

Was she lying to us, or just clueless? Either one is unforgivable from the head of DHS....

And the President of the United States? He's to busy to worry about average Joes being blown to bits by foreign terrorists, don't you know....he's got golfing to do! Shhh....he's concentrating really hard....
