Our system did not work

– Janet Napolitano talking about the Christmas Eve Bomber, Dec 28, 2009

In the news this past week, we learned that the terrorists who flew from Nigeria to the US loaded with powder and liquid explosives was trained in Yemen by Al Qaida operatives.

In a completely unrelated story, the UK Times Online is reporting that many of the Guantanamo Bay detainees who have been released are returning to Yemen and rejoining Al Qaida.

On the domestic front, in another completely unrelated story, President Obama is preparing to free more detainees from Guantanamo and help shut down this prison that has become a recruiting tool for Al Qaida.  Those detainees will go home to their countries where one in seven rejoins terrorist organizations.

And in another completely unrelated story, President Obama will be sitting down today with his top security advisers and heads of agencies to try to figure out how someone from Yemen who trained with Al Qaida got into our country with explosives on a an airplane.  And why is Yemen all of a sudden an issue?  What is causing this increase in Al Qaida presence in Yemen? Somewhere there is a disconnect.  Somewhere there is a breakdown in communication.

I sure hope they figure it out soon.
