The Washington Post reports through "unnamed sources" that the Panty Bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, is giving up intelligence to the FBI again. Byron York notes how this information conveniently comes just as the administration finds that Congress Members, on both sides of the aisle, were shocked that Abdulmutallab was only interrogated for 50 minutes before receiving his Miranda Rights. York also notes that Abdulmutallabs new information flies in the face of the administration’s previous insistence that they got all the information they could from the Panty Bomber before he was handed over to the criminal justice system.
The whole story reeks of political opportunism. It really sounds like a story designed to cover the administration’s ass on how they handled the Abdulmatallab once he was in custody. Even for the sake of argument, if the story is 100% true, then shouldn’t we be worried that we lost precious time to act on Abdulmatallab’s information as he sat silent with his Miranda Rights?
Any way you slice it, Obama does not have a security team he has a security circus. It is a circus filled with clowns who are completely incapable of bringing an A-Game to fight the war on terror. No wondered everyone in Washington seems so confident that Al Qaeda is going to strike in the next few months, they must all realize that this crew is totally incapable of preventing it.
