In case you missed it, after a young male African-born Muslim (now where have we heard that before?) tried to blow up an airliner full of Innocent people on Christmas, and only a malfunction in his bomb and a Dutch passenger taking him down saved everyone from another terrorist catastrophe, Janet "Reno" Napolitano came on a Sunday morning TV talking heads show and claimed, "The system worked!" This has already been eloquently covered here.

Now, it turns out that while Abdul was training for terrorism attacks openly in Yemen with his terrorist pals, two of those terrorist pals, who helped planned the attack, had been released from Gitmo. Seems the two, detainees #333 and #372, had been released to Saudi Arabia (another name we've heard before in relation to crashing passenger jets) where they underwent strenuous de-programming in the form of, I couldn't make this up, a rigorous "art therapy rehabilitation program". Being pronounced "new men", they were then set free.

"We were going to have them go through a 'home economics cooking and baking rehabilitation' program too," said a Saudi spokesman. "But they kept trying to cook C-4 in the muffin tins."

Even with these disasters going on, Obama on his white horse leading the charge, the thing that sticks in my craw the most is that all the lefty politicos and media hacks are still so worried about the foreign-captured non-citizen detainees' RIGHTS. They sure don't give a rat's ass about all the increasing abuses perpetrated by our own government against its own citizens in egregious violation of just about every other sentence of the United States Constitution, but by golly foreign terrorists have RIGHTS! How come no body's worried about our rights?

Are we trapped in some kind of alternate universe Bizzaro World? The folks in charge sure don't seem to be inhabiting the same plant I'm on.

If the art therapy ain't working maybe we need some international "midnight basketball" program to keep these fine young fellows out of trouble.

On the general subject of airline security, reason magazine's Jacob Sullum writes: "The reaction to [Nigerian Umar Farouk] Abdulmutallab’s fizzled bomb shows that the government continues to fetishistically focus on the details of the latest incident and impose conspicuous precautions without regard to whether the security payoff is worth the cost. Because Abdulmutallab used a blanket to conceal what he was doing, the TSA told airlines to ban the use of blankets during the last hour of flights to the United States. Also prohibited during the last hour: getting up from one’s seat, 'passenger access to carry-on baggage,' and 'personal belongings on the lap.' Why the last hour? Because that’s when Abdulmutallab tried to set off his bomb. Therefore that is what all terrorists will do."
