Crotch-bomber fails to blow up plane, in yet another disaster for Obama

There are a few ways to look at the case of the thwarted holiday crotch-bomber.

On the one hand, we have a deluded fellow who, allegedly assured of

eternal glory by jihadists who bade him sew explosive chemicals into

his underwear, set his lap on fire during a Delta flight and, instead

of the cooling ministrations of 72 virgins for which he had probably hoped, got arrested for terrorism.

On the other, we are told that the chemicals Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was wearing could have, if all went as planned, effected an explosion that might have at least disabled or even downed the plane. This is, to put it mildly, a serious concern, and we’re getting the expected investigations as well as new airline security guidelines, which are being rolled out in a rather confusing manner.

This is the bailiwick of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano,

whom rightbloggers want fired, for reasons that are also rather

confusing.
