Once and for all, let's stop asking ourselves the same question over and over, such as, "why hasn't this asshole been fired?!"
These morons don't fire anybody. They're loyal to one another. They're all going to get together after The Rapture and roast kneecaps over the Lake Of Fire.
Just start saying it over and over. Fire Michael Chertoff. Waiting for someone else to get the job of security done, then criticizing it is not what I expect from the largest governmental agency ever created in the history of mankind.
