Incredible. First the Obama administration prematurely and stupidly closed down a terrorism investigation into US Army Major Nidal Hasan, who then went on to massacre 13 people plus one unborn infant while injuring 31 more Americans.
Now we learn that the Obama administration was told about the terrorist threat of Abdul Mutallab from Nigeria by his own father – and yet failed to take action while almost losing a plane full of passengers on Christmas day:
The terror suspect who tried to blow up a Detroit-bound plane is the son of a Nigerian banker who alerted U.S. authorities to his “extreme religious views” months ago, it was reported Saturday.
The father, Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, a former minister and chairman of First Bank in Nigeria, is shocked that his son was even was allowed to fly to the U.S., family members told the Nigerian newspaper This Day.
The dad was meeting with security officials to discuss his son, identified as Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, 23.
The younger Mutallab was not on any no-fly list when he flew from Nigeria to Detroit through Amsterdam, Rep. Pete King (R-L.I.) told the Daily News.
When he tried to ignite powder strapped to his leg with a a chemical-filled syringe, he was tackled by a heroic passenger aboard Northwest Flight 253.
Thank the Lord for the hero on the flight, but what was the Obama administration doing while this threat was planning to kill hundreds of people? Apparently we now have the 2nd time in a year the Obama administration has failed to connect blaring, white hot dots which were pointed out to them with urgency.
We need congressional investigations immediately. We cannot continue to keep missing these obvious signals of pending carnage. H/T Jawa Report.
