White House Adviser Briefed in October on Underwear Bomb Technique

h/t Jawa Report

When the liberal rag NewsWeek turns on Obama, he is in deep sh*t!

So what did the Obama administration know?

  • A credible threat of a holiday timed attack
  • That Yemen based terror was a major threat
  • That the Nigerian who tried to blow up the plane was a risk, to the point of being warned by his father, a well respected Nigerian economic minister
  • That the explosive underwear method was in use

One thing I haven’t seen is where the White House said “we gave all this information to the TSA and told them to be extra alert during this holiday season”

White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan was briefed in October on an assassination attempt by Al Qaeda that investigators now believe used the same underwear bombing technique as the Nigerian suspect who tried to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on Christmas Day, U.S. intelligence and administration officials tell NEWSWEEK.

And more Obama security successes in the same article:

At the briefing for Brennan, Nayef was concerned because “he didn’t think [U.S. officials] were paying enough attention” to the growing threat from Al Qaeda in Yemen, said a former U.S. intelligence official familiar with the briefing.
