In Detroit, brave passengers on Northwest Flight 253, knowing what happened on United Flight 93, throw caution to the wind as they work to subdue a would-be terrorist bomber.
In Washington, DC, despite all evidence that’d be obvious to Helen Keller, Janet Nepolitano declares that “The System Worked”. The system, apparently, being the keen ability of the TSA, State Department, and Federal Government to fail on every possible level to detect and detain an Al Qaeda terrorist armed with an underwear bomb made by the top Al Qaeda bombmaker in Yemen; a terrorist whose own father warned the US government about him, and whose mission was plotted by 2 Al Qaeda idiots released from Gitmo in 2007.
In Hawaii, 3 hours after the incident, Obama is made aware (personally, I knew from CNN as it was happening). The TelePrompTer of the United States then takes three days to respond to the event. After golfing, of course. After all, a man has to have his priorities… (and it certainly isn’t church on Christmas).
