Officials: FBI cracked bomb suspect through family

– Tue Feb 2, 9:39 pm ET
WASHINGTON – The Nigerian man accused of trying to use a bomb hidden in his underwear to bring down a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day has been cooperating with investigators since last week, discussing his contacts in Yemen and providing intelligence in multiple terrorism investigations, officials said Tuesday.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's cooperation could prove to be a national security victory and a political vindication for President Barack Obama, who has been under fire from lawmakers who contend the administration botched the case by giving Abdulmutallab the right to remain silent, rather than interrogating him as a military prisoner.

In the days following the failed bombing, a pair of FBI agents flew to Nigeria and persuaded Abdulmutallab's family to help them. When the agents returned to the U.S., Abdulmutallab's family came, too, accordi

  • I thought the story was that the father volunteered the lead information on his son without any coaxing. In any regard he told them long before he was approached.

  • Obama u da man! lol.Put all the partisan bullshit aside and catch these mofo's.

    And as far as plea bargain goes; the only plea bargain he should get is a starving rat in a coffee tin strapped to his gut until he spills some more pertinent info.

  • strange how the FBI are now telling everyone who wants to hear about this supposed success,am I just being cynical but do you think that these revelations about the underwear bomber singing have anything to do with the pounding that the Administration have been taking from all sides in the media?

  • Looks like a federal cover-up for not turning over this somali cave jihadi to the DOD instead of the feds.
    Anyone who attempts to draw an inference from this window dressing that water boarding does not work is an idiot. First we have no proof yet anything this jihadi said will lead to other arrests. Most jihadis don't have a father that turns them in. Most jihadis are "dead enders" who must be killed or jailed for life in a Guantanamo.

  • They're gonna get zero from this kid. This is just some parents well off, empty life kid who was looking for a cause. The dude looks like he could barely tie his own shoelaces together. Only good thing this shmuck is good for is to be used as political leverage, nothing more. If ANY government agency thinks this kid is a intelligence gold mine then they should quit smoking the DEA confiscated weed.
