The Most Interesting Woe-Man In the World?

It is amazing how Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s official story has changed about the Saudi so called student who was guarded as a person of interest before the Obama Administration dropped all concerns about an individual due to be deported as a terrorist.

In a fluid investigation of an atrocity like the Boston Marathon Bombing, it is understandable the investigators might have false leads.  But it is curious how Napolitano’s story has changed. On April 18th Big Sis sarcastically refused to answer any questions from Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC 3rd) about any person in custody.  Napolitano said on the record: :“I am unaware of anyone being deported for national security reasons
at all…again, I don’t think that he was
technically a person of interest or a suspect that was a wash”.

Less than a week later, Janet Napolitano testified before the Senate that the Saudi “student:

He was not on a watchlist.  What happened is — this student was,
really when you back it out, he was in the wrong place at the wrong
time.  He was never a subject.  He was never even really a person of
interest.  Because he was being interviewed, he was at that point put on a watchlist, and then when it was quickly determined he had nothing to do with the bombing, the watch listing status was removed..

Obviously, there was double speak from the Secretary in the DHS in that utterance as he was not on a watchlist before he was put on a watch list.   And now the U.S. government officially does not know where this material witness to the Boston Bombing has gone.

Napolitano also relied on the student visa, where he was supposed to be a student at the University of Findley, except this foreign exchange student never showed up for classes in Northeast Ohio, yet managed to be front and center for the Boston Marathon when there was a terror attack.  The government claims that the Saudi student transferred to Boston.  The problem is that the University of Findley has no records of the transfer.

There continues to be a hub of strange activity about the Boston Marathon bombing, but the bizarreness continues to emanate from between the beltways in the District of Calamity. But if America is still has the rule of law  instead of a rule of men, it might be woe for the most interesting Woman still in the Obama Cabinet.

DHS Newspeak and National Security–Help Big Sis’ Out?

Mini-home malquoted doubleplusungood. Dayorder rectify goodthink for prolefeed bellyfull before Two Minute Hate.

There are times that it just seems apropos to use Newspeak from George Orwell’s seminal novel 1984 to cover the security issues in America, particularly regarding the Department of Homeland Security (Mini-home). In the early days of the Obama Administration, Pentagon officials were warned not to refer to the Long War or the Global War on Terror but instead to bluster bureacratese “Overseas Contingency Operations”. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano tried to avoid refering to 9/11 or terrorism but preferred such euphemisms as “Man made disasters.” The Obama Administration considered what Major Nidal Hasan in the 2009 Fort Hood shootings, where 13 people were killed and 29 injured was not homegrown terrorism or domestic jihad (despite the shooter screaming “Allahu Akbar”) but was a workplace violence incident.

Alas, this “nuanced” approach is not limited to Newspeak…
