Napolitano tells the German news site Spiegel Online that while she presumes there is always a threat from terrorism: "I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur."I'll tell you the nuance that jumped out at me. Why is Janet Napolitano only talking about "man-caused" disasters?
Surely this was an error.
I admit it's somewhat rarer,
but even the fairer sex sometimes causes terror.
Which is why, to protect our land,
the TSA routinely demands
that even old ladies be thoroughly scanned.
