    Some Democrats have joined in calling for Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to step down following the attempted bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight a week ago.

    Though the CIA and an agency under the Director of National Intelligence have been under particular scrutiny in the preliminary review of possible missteps, Napolitano so far has taken the most heat from lawmakers. Not only does her department oversee the Transportation Security Administration, but her initial claim Sunday that "the system worked" was widely ridiculed and interpreted by critics as a sign that she's in over her head.

    Democrats shouldn't be too hard on her without questioning where her instructions came from. She' dumb enough on her own, but..

    Her asinine remarks were parroted by Press secretary Gibbs, indicating a coordinated response that could only come directly from the White House.

    I think it's the state department that dropped the ball on this one. Wasn't this guy given a multi-visit VISA ?
