Yeah, That Globe Poll Looks Wrong | Main | Priorities: Check Out Speed of Obama's Reaction in Harry Reid Contretemps Vs. Christmas Panty-Bomber

Former Senator and Member of 9/11 Commission Slade Gorton: Panty-Bomber Was "Singing Like a Canary" Until Read His Miranda Rights


"He was singing like a canary, then we charged him in civilian proceedings, he got a lawyer and shut up," Slade Gorton, a member of the 9/11 Commission that investigated the Sept 2001 terror attacks on the US, told The Sunday Telegraph.

"I find it incomprehensible that this administration is treating terrorism as a law enforcement issue. The president has finally said that we are at war with al-Qaeda. Well, if this is a war, then Abdulmutallab should be treated as a combatant not a criminal."

I hope, for Obama's sake, he's really personally committed to this proposition, because it's going to 1) kill several hundred innocent Americans and 2) cost him his presidency.

I hope he really has a high level of personal conviction on this, to assuage himself as a private citizen in 2013.

The American people will not, under any circumstances, stand for this.

Via Consigliere5.

Why didn't you come to me like a f*cking man and tell me terrorists are trying to kill us?
