What is "Felony Stupid"?

Which of the following situations is "felony stupid" from the perspective of a Homeland Security expert?

1. Flying to Saudi Arabia days after Hurricane Katrina to deliver a Presidential letter to the Saudi Monarchy on the massive disaster.

2. Omitting any mention of the hospital with the highest patient death toll from the White House Lessons Learned report. (Memorial Medical Center lost 34 patients.)

3. Flying a plane over lower Manhattan for a presidential photo op.

All three situations involve Frances Townsend, President Bush's Homeland Security adviser. She did the first two while in office. As a CNN commenter, Fran called #3 "felony stupid."

I think they all qualify.

Update: Fran unleashed another "felony stupidity" around a Potomac River Coast Guard drill on 9-11.
