DNI: It was stupid to Mirandize Christmas Bomber
A rare glimpse of sanity within the Obama Administration?
[Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair] noted that the administration has created a special team for interrogating high-value terrorism suspects and that it wasn’t used -- but should have been -- after the arrest of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian accused of attempting to take down the Northwest Airlines flight traveling from Amsterdam to Detroit.So, given that the DNI is dead on right here as opposed to the Attorney General's office, shouldn't Obama be showing us some of that 'accountability' he's always talking about and fire Eric Holder?
"That unit was created exactly for this purpose," Blair told the Senate Homeland Security Committee. “We did not invoke the [High Value Interrogation Group] in this case. We should have. Frankly, we were thinking more of overseas people. And, duh ... the decision was made on the scene."
