On Morning Joe, The Nation‘s DC editor, Chris Hayes, appears in segments focused on guests Rep. Peter King and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Both clips feature responses to the failed airplane bombing by Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, with Rep. King critiquing Obama’s silence on the matter and Secretary Napolitano outlining the administration’s renewed security measures. Hayes doesn’t give either guest a free pass–asking both of them to own up to their respective talking points. “I wonder if you feel like there’s a more pro-active way to deal with the security and not just retroactively impose these policies that feel a little bit like theater,” he asks Napolitano directly.
