Now it seems that the CIA knew about terrorist Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab. His Father talked to someone from the CIA and a report was prepared, but the report was not circulated outside the agency, according to a CNN source.
Let's see who would be responsible for that? Why Leon Panetta, another of Obama's brilliant picks. Why when the nation is under attack in the "War Which Must Not Be Mentioned" would you put someone with almost no hands on intelligence and counterterrorism experience in charge of the CIA?
Barack Obama is responsible for Janet Napolitano, Leon Panetta and the total failure of their respective agencies. Barack Obama has failed to protect this nation and speeches about not resting and systemic failure just won't suffice as a response.
We need a leader not a teleprompter reader.
UPDATE: The U.S. government had received intelligence from Yemen -- before the attempted airplane bombing -- that a Nigerian was being prepared for a terrorist attack by a branch of al-Qaeda in Yemen, the New York Times reported on Wednesday. We had the guy's name, his plan and where he was trained and the Obamamites still couldn't put the pieces together. Oh yeah, I want them handling my health care. Incompetent buffoons.
