Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
“One off” theory somewhat off, from Jake Tapper, ABC News [1]:

In his first Sunday morning interview, Attorney General Eric Holder revealed that the Pakistani Taliban was behind Faisal Shahzad’s attempted bombing of Times Square last week.

“We’ve now developed evidence that shows that the Pakistani Taliban was behind the attack,” Holder said on “This Week.”

“We know that they helped facilitate it. We know that they probably helped finance it. And that he was working at their direction.”

So if Eric Holder, not exactly the brightest bulb in the drawer, can figure out that Faisal Shahzad’s had foreign help why was Department of Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano so darn quick to declare  Shahzad’s s lone wolf?    Has Napolitano delegated national intelligence to the Justice Department?

More, Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit [2]:

Earlier this week it was reported that the Obama White House removed [3] confessed terrorist Faisal Shahzad from the Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list sometime after [4] Barack Obama came into office.

Terrorist Faisal Shahzad had substantial connections [5] to the Taliban, reached out to the Taliban, was influenced by [6] Yemeni terror leader Anwar al Awlaki, made at least a dozen [7] return trips to Pakistan since arriving in the United States in 1999, and he bought a one way ticket [8] with cash to Pakistan.

Still more, Tim Cavanaugh, Reason [9], suggests that Napolitano will continue to her wrong headed focus until prople actually die:

Napolitano’s rhetorical slip is a little too serious to be palmed off with some linguistic woolgathering [10]. She has made clear repeatedly that she believes people with Gadsden flag bumper stickers are a greater threat [11] to domestic tranquility than out-of-the-closet terrorists who receive training and material assistance in foreign terror centers. She has been wrong about this every time, and she will continue to be wrong until Americans actually die.

You would think the mission of DHS is to protect the American people.   With Napolitano as the helm of DHD, you would be wrong.

Sedition, from Wikipedia [12]:

Sedition is a term of law [13] which refers to overt conduct, such as speech [14] and organization [15], that is deemed by the legal authority as tending toward insurrection [16] against the established order.  Sedition often includes subversion [17] of a constitution [18] and incitement [19] of discontent (or resistance [20]) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel [21]. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.
