REP. PETER King says our security system is a failure. He is nothing but a political opportunist capable only of pandering to our fears in search of votes.

What Rep. King (Blowhard-N.Y.) fails to recognize is that the part of our system that worked is the vigilance of our citizens. No planes were destroyed, lives lost or buildings toppled.

Pete, how about doing your job by voting for some real regulations on the economic security threat to our citizens - those Wall Street shakedown artists who you represent in New York?
