Sen. Collins: Major security lapse in handling Abdulmutallab

Hat tip to twitterer augustine25 who retweeted a tweet containing the following video:

Sen. Collins did an excellent job in exposing the stupidity, ineptness of the government in dealing with a military combatant in the war on terror.

In the video Sen. Susan Collins says, “Fifty minutes . . . that’s the amount of time the F.B.I. spent questioning Abdulmutallab, the foreign (more accurately, Islamic, but Collins is constrained in speaking the whole truth, being a PC RINO) terrorist, who tried to blow up a plane on Christmas Day! Then he was given a Miranda warning and a lawyer, and not surprisingly he stopped talking.

“How did we get to this point? How did the (Soetoro aka) Obama administration decide to treat a foreign (again, an ISLAMIC) terrorist, who had tried to murder hundreds of people, as if he were a common criminal? . . .”

“The government security system, a front line in the war against (Islamic) terrorists failed long before Abdulmutallab boarded his flight to the U.S. It failed when his visa wasn’t revoked, even though his father warned our embassy in Nigeria about his son’s ties with Islamic extremists. It failed when the intelligence community was unable to connect the dots that would have placed Abdulmutallab on the terrorist watch list . . .”

“. . .(T)oday I want to discuss another failure, a failure after Abdulmutallab had already been detained by authorities in Detroit. An error that undoubtedly prevented the collection of valuable intelligence about future (Islamic) terrorist threats to our country. This failure occurred when the (Soetoro alias) Obama Justice Department unilaterally decided to treat this foreign (Islamic) terrorist as an ordinary criminal . . .”

“When the (Soetoro alias) Obama administration decided to treat Abdulmutallab as an ordinary criminal, it did so without input of our nation’s intelligence officials:

· The Director of National Intelligence was not consulted.
· The Secretary of Defense was not consulted.
· The Secretary of Homeland Security was not consulted.
· The Director of National Counter terrorism was not consulted.

They would have explained the importance of gathering all possible intelligence about Yemen,where there is a serious threat from (ISLAMIC) terrorists, whose sights are trained on this nation . . .”

Sen. Collins closed by saying, “The (Soetoro aka) Obama administration appears to have a blind spot when it comes to the War on Terrorism. And because of that blindness, the administration cannot see a foreign (actually an Islamic) terrorist, even when he stands right in front of them, fresh from an attempt to blow a plane out of the sky on Christmas day. There’s no other way to explain the irresponsible, indeed dangerous, decision on Abdulmutallab's interrogation. There's no other way to explain the inconceivable treatment of him as if he were a common criminal. This charade must stop. Foreign (ISLAMIC) terrorists are enemy combatants and they must be treated as such. The safety of the American people depends on it."
