A good solid B+
Yesterday Barack Obama finally commented on the Detroit undie bomber’s attempt to blow up flight 253. The president reported that he had the “suspect” arrested for the “alleged” bombing:
The undie bomber was arrested. He was read his rights in his hospital bed. He was not interrogated. It doesn’t look like he will ever be interrogated. His lawyers won’t allow that. We will likely never know his contacts or who gave him the explosive undies.
Barack Obama doesn’t want to upset the Islamists and foreign leftists.
Mark Steyn added this on the alleged suspect:
There’s a difference between an alleged suspect (which is what he is is the President’s fantasy) and an enemy combatant (which is what he is in reality). If this were a war, we would question him about who he hooked up with in Yemen, who did he meet with in London, and maybe get a lead on attacks to come. Instead, the authorities, having issued the Knickerbomber a multi-entry visa, having permitted him to board the plane, and having failed to detect his incendiary unwear, now allow him to lawyer up and ensure that we’ll never know who he knew in Yemen or anywhere else.
