The catastrophe of Abdulmutallab's attempted Christmas present was only the beginning.

[Editor’s note: The following article is reprinted from the National Post.]

Top 10 Disasters of Flight 253:

[1] Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is on a terrorist watch list and banned from the U.K. His father has warned U.S. authorities about him. He has no passport, checks no luggage and pays for a one-way ticket in cash. He is allowed to board Northwest Airlines Flight 253.

[2] Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano goes on TV after the Christmas day terror attempt and announces that “the system worked” and that “everything happened that should have.”

[3] The next day, the Secretary goes back on TV to explain her words were taken “out of context” and admits that the “system did not work in this instance.”

[4] Napolitano is not fired.

[5] After staying silent for three days while playing golf in Hawaii , Obama makes his first statement: He declares, despite all evidence to the contrary, that the al-Qaeda trained Abdulmutallab is “an isolated extremist.” The President refers to him as a “suspect.”

[6] The “suspect” is charged, lawyered up and given the right to remain silent – instead of being treated as an enemy combatant, thrown into a dungeon, and interrogated about other plots, al-Qaeda in general and the whereabouts of his al-Qaeda handlers in particular.

[7] The administration fails to use the word “jihad” in dealing with this terror attack by al-Qaeda and to admit that the U.S. is at war with Islamic terrorists who are inspired by certain tenets of Islamic theology.

[8] A policy of profiling is not immediately instituted for airline security.

[9] Obama does not announce his decision to keep Guantanamo open and to stop sending its detainees back to Yemen .

[10] Obama remains in office.
