Systemic Failure

Credit Where It's Due [Mark Steyn]

Oh, be fair, Jonah.

2010: The United States Government revokes Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's visa a mere 12 days after he tries to kill 300 people.

2002: The United States Government approves Mohammed Atta's visa six months after he's actually killed 3,000 people - and is, in fact, himself deceased.

If that's not objective, measurable improvement in the U.S. bureaucracy, I don't know what is. Like they say, the system worked!

P.S. Now that he's no longer legally entitled to be in the United States, does that mean Mr. Abdul Mutallab is eligible for release to art school in Saudi Arabia?
Do you ever look around and think, "we are so screwed."?
