"I honestly don't have a position, I have not focused on where he would be charged"
-Michael Leiter: Director of the United States National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC)
I can't admit Prez was wrong, we were blind to the new terror plot in Yemen after Obama ended the CIA interr. program on day 2 of his presidency and here's the result 1 year later.
I originally agreed with the President but can't be on the record with it.
I've been putting out so many other fires..ignored primary mission statement of NCTC
I stayed on the ski slopes, lost critical intel and can't admit that.
I didn't invoke the HIG (High Value Int. group), we forgot to create it and can't admit.
"I am not ready to offer an opinion in open session, we can talk about it in closed session"
-Director of National Intelligence Adm. Dennis Blair
translation: I disagree with the President, we SHOULD go with the military option, which I can't say publicly.
from the millisecond the media reported an issue with that flight, knowing that the diaper bomber survived to be possibly interrogated, the terrorists began covering their tracks, closing email and bank accounts, hiding the islamists involved, destroying evidence, etc.
We have the puzzle pieces, but no box cover to know how to put puzzle together.
farouk akhmatullab has seen the puzzle box cover, knows who helped him operationally, funded him, what the bank and email accounts are....who,where, what, when, why. Yet we gave him a lawyer, read his rights, and he said fuck you very much, I have the right to remain silent.
Now it's too late, they waited too long, intel is gone.
And yet, Holder and Obama are bringing KSM to NYC to give him the show trial and bully pulpit he always wanted before he told the FBI he wanted to plead guilty and be executed, saying "I want my martyrdom now", "Give me my martyrdom".
The first thing out of KSM's mouth when asked when the next attacks were planned was "you will find out soon enough" (would occur very soon-i.e. the Hambali plot with southeast asian terror cell to hit the library towers in los angeles, ramzi's europe/heathrow/london plot and al-baluchi/bin attash plot on karachi, east africa and djibouti). And when they demanded he tell them he said, "I'll tell you when I get my lawyer in New York City."
Before interrogating ramzi bin al sheib and abu zubaydah, we didn't even know KSM existed or the several other plots (KSM,hambali, bojinka, etc.).
Blair Criticized For Misstatements On Christmas Day Terror Case
Thursday, January 21st, 2010 1:06 pm
Obama administration officials were flabbergasted this week when Director of National Intelligence Adm. Dennis Blair testified that an alleged Qaeda operative who tried to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day should have been questioned by a special interrogation unit that doesn’t exist, rather than the FBI, Newsweek reports. One senior official described the comments by Blair—the top U.S. intelligence official—as misinformed on multiple levels and all the more damaging because they fueled Republican criticism that the administration mishandled the Christmas Day incident in its treatment of the accused Qaeda operative as a criminal suspect rather than an enemy combatant.
Testifying to a Senate committee, Blair referred to a High-Value Interrogation Group—a special unit that an Obama administration task force recommended be created last summer. “That unit was created exactly for this purpose—to make a decision on whether a certain person who’s detained should be treated as a case for federal prosecution or for some of the other means,” Blair told the panel. “We did not invoke the HIG in this case; we should have.” Blair later issued a clarification that he did not mean to imply that the unit existed now.
