The new liberal spin: 9/11 hijackers -“dumb luck”

I thought it curious that the new DHS secretary totally avoided mentioning “terrorism” and “September 11” in her prepared remarks to Congress. Link

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano avoids mention of the terms “terrorism” or “Sept. 11” in remarks prepared for her first congressional testimony since taking office, signaling a sharp change in tone from her predecessors.

The explanation may be found in this article at Slate: The Terrorists-Are-Dumb Theory
(Don’t mistake these guys for criminal masterminds)
Here is an excerpt:

The 9/11 attacks were heralded as the harbinger of a new era of foreign-based terrorism in the United States. What if they were really a fluke?

Al-Qaida’s successful elimination of the Twin Towers, part of the Pentagon, four jetliners, and nearly 3,000 innocent lives makes the terror group seem, in hindsight, diabolically brilliant. But when you review how close the terrorists came to being exposed by U.S. intelligence, 9/11 doesn’t look like an ingenious plan that succeeded because of shrewd planning. It looks like a stupid plan that succeeded through sheer dumb luck.

The hubris and arrogance of the new administration will be their undoing. Let us hope that it will not be the republic’s undoing.
