Work within the system! For change!

Yesterday, Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano was reported as saying that the "system" worked. Today, she says the system failed:

A day after saying the system worked, Napolitano backtracked, saying her words had been taken out of context.

"Our system did not work in this instance," she said on NBC's "Today" show. "No one is happy or satisfied with that. An extensive review is under way."

I agree with Jonah Goldberg that she should be fired.

The problem is that firing someone like that solves nothing, as the same people who put her there will put someone else there.

That would have been my comment too. Obama would just replace her with someone else who agrees with his worldview. He is every bit as incompetent as she is.

Well, not necessarily. The person may not do the thing you want, but the next person gets the message that failure is unacceptable. Since they were the second choice, they might be more incompentent.
