Are You There?

Glenn Greenwald has a retarded post here. He lauds Helen Thomas for asking what the motivation for the Xmas day attempted bombing was. First of all, that is a stupid question to ask. Who knows the hearts of men? But the crazy thing is the divorce between the question and the answer. The question of Helen Thomas concerned the motivation of the person(s) who wished us harm, but the answer from Napolitano addressed the level of security at Skipple airport. But that equally moronic (but ballsy) woman Thomas keeps asking what the motivation of the would-be bomber was, to which John Brennan replies with the standard they-are-evil-and-kill-innocents response. There is a negative communication level going on here. Not only is the question not being answered, but the "answer" is irrelevant to the "question."
