National security adviser: Airline bomber report to 'shock'




White House national security adviser James Jones says Americans will feel "a certain shock" when they read an account being released Thursday of the missed clues that could have prevented the alleged Christmas Day bomber from ever boarding the plane.

Something just doesn't seem to feel right regarding the governmental response and reaction of the alleged Christmas Day plane terrorist incident.

I can't help but feel as though the government is strongly pushing for increased security measures, which Americans would not have originally accepted, by "showcasing" just how poor current airport/airplane security is due to the ongoing terrorist threat.

It seems over the past several days, new "threats" and "scares" have been shutting down airport terminals, security holes are being detected, and passengers are "unruly" causing military jet escorts for passenger airliners. New body-scan machines are being ordered and implemented around the world. Air Marshals are now being assigned to many more flights, both domestic and international.

And now this report is to be released, leaving Americans with a "shock" that security was so passive and incompetent that our overall personal and national security is at threat.

"Two strikes" have occurred and we must not allow the third strike, according to the White House national security advisor.

So my fear is that the government is preparing for FAR MORE intrusive, strict, and militaristic airport and airplane security.

Am I alone on this presupposition?

Even with whatever details and improvements are revealed Thursday, questions will remain. Senate committees plan hearings later this month. And it remains unclear whether any top officials from Obama's not-quite-year-old administration will be fired over the debacle.

"I don't know what the final outcome in terms of hiring and firing will be," Gibbs said.

He said no personnel announcements were expected Thursday.

Two legislative officials familiar with intelligence matters, one in the House and one in the Senate, said Wednesday that it appeared unlikely that anyone in the Obama administration would be fired over the incident. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Obama's comments Thursday will be his sixth on the incident, encompassing two statements to reporters during his Hawaii vacation and two more from the White House, a written statement on New Year's Eve and his radio address last weekend.

Seems like a lot of press conferences and statements by the President, which means the end-result of all this certainly isn't going to be a mere termination or two of low-level TSA employees.

I have a feeling Americans that fly should brace themselves for quite a governmental/TSA/DHS response.

Another indication that my guess may be quite correct:



"Time and again, we've learned that quickly piecing together information and taking swift action is critical to staying one step ahead of a nimble adversary," Obama said. "So we have to do better -- and we will do better."

Obama said, "In the days ahead, I will announce further steps to disrupt attacks, including better integration of information and enhanced passenger screening for air travel."

Good. I hope you're right. The more people they rake over the coals, the more they squeeze, the more people that slip out of their grasp.

I say "let the hammer fall".

The TSA granny gropers and the DHS, not to mention the pigs, are doing more to build resistance than I could ever have hoped for.
