I agree with Laura and Liz both that Eric Holder’s Dept. of Justice should be required to disclose the names of the lawyers who formerly worked for the defense of the detainees, yet now are working in the DOJ and will now be involved in the prosecution of these detainees, should they ever be brought to American soil. This cannot stand.
Today, Eric Bolling was sitting in for Glenn Beck, and he had on Ann Coulter & Andrew Breitbart to discuss the current war on terror situation, and all I can say is it was classic Coulter & Breitbart. No further commentary needed on my part.
This evening during the Special Report panel, fill-in host Chris Wallace got word via his producers that Fox News had confirmed Christmas bomber, Farouk Abdulmutallab has been being tracked by the CIA since this past August! WTF? Janet, this is how “The System Worked?” The system FAILED, or you weren’t listening at all.
Epic FAIL for Obama, too, considering his 2nd speech today on the matter indicates only now after “new” info is discovered does he now believe we were spared a “catastrophic breach” event. Excuse me? New info? How did you not know, Obummer, about Abdulmutallab if your CIA has been tracking him since last August? Again, EPIC FAIL. No worries, Barack…just go right back to your golf game.
Time to fire Janet Incompetano and NOW! As usual, Krauthammer delivers a fierce scorching, as do A.B. Stoddard and Fred Barnes. And after all this, believe it or not, the 7 o’clock hour news reveals that this “new” information will NOT alter the plans to close Gitmo.
On Sunday’s “This Week,” Jake Tapper filled in for Stephanopolous, and his first guest was DHS Secretary, Janet Napolitano. I’ll just let you watch and judge for yourself: Did the system work “as planned?” If “as planned” you mean the passengers tackled Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab before he could carry out his plan, then yes, the system worked “as planned.”
Not to mention that, it’s been reported Farouk bought a one-way ticket, paid cash, had no luggage, and was on some type of government watch list (if not the official no-fly list). So tell me, Janet…how did the system work “as planned?” You are an inept fool, who is well above your head in all things “national security.” I’m still waiting for Obama to pat you on the back and say “good job, Jannie.”
Tonight on Special Report, the panel was excellent as usual. Recent reports revealed that KSM’s attorneys say he and his co-horts will plead ‘not guilty’ so they can explain in court why 9/11, along with their assessment of American foreign policy as they see it.
