It appears that Janet Reno Napolitano and the morons at Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection are too busy harrassing airplane collectors than looking for terrorists. http://blog.al.com/birmingham-news-stories/2009/12/post_64.html (h/t Sispey Street Irregulars http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/2009/12/we-dont-harass-people-like-fun-they.html)
While CBP and ICE claim that their mission is finding terrorists, and we all know that isn't true, but they claim it, they can't even do what they claim their job is. Witness the near destruction of an American airplane by a know terrorist that TSA, CBP, and ICE allowed to board a plane coming to the U.S. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_airliner_attack
The DHS also apparently allowed the State Department to a terrorist. DHS does have the responsibility to review the DOS visa recipients for terrorism connections. But Janet Reno failed there again.
But waging war on Americans is Janet Reno Napolitano's true intent. Seizing a 50 year old airplane and eventually arresting and prosecuting the owner is the Obama Regime's replacement for the War On Terror, the War On America.
It appears that the non-enforcement against radical Islam extended in this case back to Jorge Bush. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,581180,00.html
