"On Saturday morning, Mr. Abdulmutallab appeared to be sleeping when a reporter approached his corner room in the burn center at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor."
So the WSJ reporter got close enough to see the Al Qaeda bomber? The reporter got close enough to see the Al Qaeda bomber? The reporter got close enough to see the Al Qaeda bomber!
You've got to be frickin' kidding me. This is wrong on so many levels. What if the "reporter" had been an armed AQ terr or had a bomb strapped to himself? He could have martyred himself, his buddy, and taken out a few law enforcement guys in the process. Don't tell me Ann Arbor doesn't have a few sleeper cells. I'd put money on that bet.
When are we going to take these threats seriously? This is not a crime. It was a terrorist attack. Terrorists are not criminals. They are enemy combatants, militants if you will...soldiers in their eyes. When soldiers go up against law enforcement - who do you want to bet on?
Beg to differ with the Secretary, but the system is not working.
Exit question: Will they ship AbulMutallab to Gitmo?
