Obama cites apparent al-Qaida link in bomb plot

HONOLULU (AP) - An al-Qaida affiliate in Yemen apparently ordered the Christmas Day plot against a U.S. airliner, training and arming the 23-year-old Nigerian man accused in the failed bombing, President Barack Obama said Saturday.

“This is not the first time this group has targeted us,” Obama said, reporting on some of the findings of an administration review into how intelligence agencies failed to prevent Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab from boarding Detroit-bound Northwest Flight 253.

In his most direct public language to date, Obama described the path through Yemen of Abdulmutallab. He also emphasized that the United States would continue its partnerships with friendly countries - citing Yemen, in particular - to fight terrorists and extremist groups.

The U.S. plans to more than double its counterterrorism aid to the impoverished, fragmented Arab nation in the coming year to support Yemen’s campaign against al-Qaida.

How do you like that? Barack Hussein Obama has it all figured out. al-Qaida is “apparently” the responsible party for the bombing attempt on Christmas Day! And WOW, it only took him, what, 8 days?

Obama’s homeland security team has been piecing together just how Abdulmutallab was able to get on the plane. Officials have described flaws in the system and by those executing the strategy and have delivered a preliminary assessment.

But wait! Didn’t DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano say that the system worked? Before she said the system didn’t work? Napolitano Acknowledges Security Failed in Allowing Terror Suspect on Plane. Sounds strangely familiar, like something John Kerry might say.

What’s the deal with Dems anyway? They can’t make a statement that sticks. They can’t speak from a position of authority, well, not on anything that really matters, and when they get *called* on their ridiculous statements, they just go with the flow and pretend they didn’t really say whatever it was they said!

A top counterterrorism official said Saturday that al-Qaida and others extremists are working to test U.S. defenses and launch an attack on American soil.

NO!!! Really? Are you sure? Golly gee whiz Mr. Obama-Man, you and all of your terror experts sure are smart and junk! You guys have it figured out now? You really think that al-Qaida and others extremists are working to test our defenses and launch an attack on American soil? Gosh Mr. Obama-Man, you and your buddies sure are smart!
