What’s not clear here?

A few years later, 19 Muslims hijacked three American airplanes and used them as suicide weapons which killed thousands of American citizens. How about the head of our Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano? Given the grave responsibilities that Ms Napolitano has, you would think she would have been fired after her blatant incompetence associated the Christmas Day bomber. Who can forget her initial press appearances in which she dismissed the likelihood that the bomber had connection to Islamic terror networks? Now with the Times Square bomber, she did the same thing. She initially wrote off Faisal Shahzad as “one-off.” Just another isolated, marginal nutcase. A few weeks ago, Senators Lieberman and Collins wrote an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal saying that the “administration continues to withhold crucial information from Congress” about the Fort Hood massacre. The Senators have been denied their request to interview FBI and Defense Department agents and for interview transcripts with associates of the terrorist Major Hassan. Meanwhile, as Americans are up in arms about illegals crossing our southern border, the American government is putting unprecedented pressure on Israel to compromise its own border security calculations and to allow a new state to be established as its neighbor by those who have never demonstrated ability to govern themselves and whose only unifying theme is hatred for and wish for the destruction of Israel. Who is governing America?
