Janet Napolitano, 51, is President Obama’s new Homeland Security Secretary. She spoke with SPIEGEL about immigration, the continued threat of terrorism and the changing tone in Washington.
SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word “terrorism.” Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?
Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word “terrorism,” I referred to “man-caused” disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.
A nuance….like this, Janet?:
Flight 93 crash site
World Trade Center
Just re-name muslim terrorists “peaceful practitioners of Islam”, and refer to their atrocities as “man caused” disasters, so we can do away with the “politics of fear”.
Just think, the assclowns currently occupying the White House are making decisions about America’s national security. Oh, boy.
Somewhere, Orwell is laughing his ass off.
