Michael “Serpenthead” Chertoff, once again–actually, twice again–displays why Abraham Lincoln gave good advice when he counseled against speaking and confirming you are a dummy.
* On Monday, he said this:
It chills me sometimes to think there are people a half a world away who are spending the same period of time in a cave, trying to figure out how to kill us.
No, what’s really chilling is that there’s a person heading what’s supposed to be “Homeland Security” who still doesn’t know that those people are NOT “a half a world away.” They are here, Dhummi. Were the Fort Dix Six “a half a world away”? Were the “Lackawanna Six” “a half a world away”? Was Nuradin Abdi, who wanted to blow up a shopping mall in Ohio and just pleaded guilty, “a half a world away”? Is Kifah Wael Jayyousi “a half a world away”? Are Ahmed Abda Sherif Mohamed and Yousef Samir Megahed, the two Smiling Muslim Mugshot “Just Fireworks” terrorists caught Saturday Night on a highway in South Carolina with pipe bombs “a half a world away”? Was Solejman Talovic, the Trolley Square Muslim Terrorist “a half a world away”? Were the JFK plotters “a half a world away”?
I could go on forever, but you get the point. Too bad the “Serpenthead” does not, since he’s one of the ones who most needs to. Maybe that jibes with his little lovefest with two imam agents of Hezbollah and Iran, here in Detroit. They are their congregants are under investigation for various ties to and money-laundering for terrorists. But they really couldn’t be bad because, after all, they’re not within his geographical distinction for terrorists, “a half a world away.” Gee, where were Mohammed Atta and his 18 “co-workers” on 9/11? I guess they weren’t terrorists, after all, because, hey, they were not “a half a world away.”
As my friend, the brilliant patriot Ruth S. King, writes:
WILL SOMEONE TELL CHERTOFF THAT THE ENEMY IS HERE . . . PREPARING?
“Whatever turns out to be the case with these two individuals, it underscores the importance of people being alert,” Chertoff said. “Even if this turns out to be benign, if it turns out not to be a big deal, this is the kind of alertness and response that creates real homeland security for the people of this state as well as the country as a whole.” . . .
Chertoff said he would not speculate as to whether the incident is related to an act of terrorism.
“It is up to the court system now to resolve it,” he said.
If he’s too wimpy and PC to see this as terrorism, just what is terrorism? Pipe bombs are just fashion accessories for Muslims? Just curious. Pipe bombs can be “benign”?
Well, at least he’s consistent. He’s not calling these guys “terrorists” because by his geographical definition, they simply can’t be. After all, the are not “a half a world away.” So how could they possibly be terrorists?
Memo to Next President: Do Not Hire Incompetent Harvard Lawyer to Head Homeland Security. Duh.
Chertoff, You’re Doin’ a Heckuva Job.
