Director Of National Intelligence: You Know, Giving The Christmas Bomber A Lawyer Was A Mistake

Gee, you think?

Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair told senators today that it was a mistake for authorities to give the accused bomber in the attempted Christmas Day attack on a U.S.-bound airliner a reading of his Miranda right to an attorney without consulting Blair's office, the Homeland Security secretary and other officials.

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.

"That unit was created exactly for this purpose," Blair told the Senate Homeland Security Committee. “We did not invoke the HIG in this case. We should have. Frankly, we were thinking more of overseas people. And, duh ... the decision was made on the scene."

Unbelievable, except you know, it's not.

"Thinking more of overseas people? Hello! You may have heard of this incident on 9/11/01 that involved planes, 'overseas people' and happened here in the US. Jebus they are incompetent.

Who on the scene made this call and why aren't they being held responsible for causing us to lose valuable intelligence that might save lives?

In fairness, unless it's someone high up the food chain like a political appointee at DoJ (and 'on the scene' likely rules that out) it's hard to blame the person. The Obama administration to the cheers of their supporters on the left have made it perfectly clear that they view these kinds of attacks as nothing more than another law enforcement issues, you know kind of like a 911 call for some drunken college kids pissing behind a bar...they both get the same rights and protections.

Exactly how many people are going to have to die to satisfy the moral posturing of this administration and its supporters?

Bonus: Hillary! lets terror supporters into this country that the Bush administration had kept out. Change!
