New Land-Speed Reversal Record

Reuters:
The system aimed at keeping air travel secure failed when a Nigerian man who was suspected of ties to militants managed to smuggle explosives aboard a flight, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said on Monday. "It did," Napolitano said in an interview on NBC's Today Show, when asked if the system "failed miserably."
At least she's not sticking with the "heckuvajob" line, so there is one improvement.

By the way, has anyone else noted that NWA 253 was painted in Delta colors? NWA was acquired by the Deltoids, I'm sort of surprised that the code for the flight was NWA rather than DAL. On the other hand, it's working out pretty well for Delta that it is Northwest Airlines that has been tagged with being the victim of the Underpants Bomber.
