The cluelessness of Janet Napolitano

Add to all the other fatutities of our clueless Secretary of Homeland Security, this comment from yesterday's news conference which displays that the woman is so amazingly wrong for the position she holds.
Question: What was the most shocking, stunning thing that you found out of the review? And, Secretary, to you, as well.

SECRETARY NAPOLITANO: I think, following up on that, not just the determination of al Qaeda and al Qaeda Arabian Peninsula, but the tactic of using an individual to foment an attack, as opposed to a large conspiracy or a multi-person conspiracy such as we saw in 9/11, that is something that affects intelligence. It really emphasizes now the renewed importance on how different intelligence is integrated and analyzed, and threat streams are followed through. And, again, it will impact how we continue to review the need to improve airport security around the world.
She is surprised or, in the words of the reporter, shocked or stunned, at the "determination of al Qaeda. She didn't think they would use an individual to foment an attack. Has the woman been asleep for the past 8 1/2 years? She's unfamiliar with the names of individual terrorists who have been captured such as Richard Reid. She hasn't noticed individual suicide bombers in Iraq and Afghanistan? Geesh!
