I’m ignoring Janet Napolitano’s idiotic statement that there’s no logic in profiling Muslim men under the age of 35. There have been plenty of news stories and videos covering that. My issue is that not only does the head of the United States of America’s Homeland Security not know who the enemy is, but she doesn’t even understand that a Muslim and someone practicing Islam are one and the same. Oh brother. What intelligence we have.

Is it any wonder there is such an uproar over Napolitano’s TSA? How can the TSA be competent if they don’t know who the terrorists are? Who are they even looking for?

Here’s the transcript of her statement:

“You’re not using good logic there. You’ve got to use actual intelligence that you received. And, so, you might — all you’ve given me is a kind of status. You have not given me a technique for tactic or behavior. Something that would suggest somebody is not Muslim, but Islamic, that has actually moved into the category of violent extremists,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said at a forum on U.S. security and preventing terrorist attacks.

“We have ways to make some of those cuts. And they involve the intel that comes in, the analysis that goes on. For example, we often times, for travelers entering the United States, we won’t not do what is called a secondary inspection just because they are a 35-year- old male who appears to be Muslim, whatever that means. But we know from intelligence that if they have a certain travel pattern over a certain period of time, that should cause us to ask some more significant questions than if we don’t.” (from Real Clear Politics)
