    The chance to secure crucial information about al-Qaeda operations in Yemen was lost because the Obama administration decided to charge and prosecute Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as an ordinary criminal, critics say. He is said to have reduced his co-operation with FBI interrogators on the advice of his government-appointed defence counsel.

    The potential significance became chillingly clear this weekend when it was reported that shortly after his detention, he boasted that 20 more young Muslim men were being prepared for similar murderous missions in the Yemen.


    What will the backlash be if, God forbid, he was not bluffing?

    "You have the right to remain silent.
    Anything you say or do can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney.
    If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you.
    Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you?"

    Don'tcha just love an administration who doesn't believe this is an act of war, instead of a crime by a misguided youth?

    Damn incompetence on parade. THIS is why you libs are called weak on defense.
