If a Nigerian jihadist is spotted by the CIA planning a terrorist attack, but the CIA doesn’t tell anyone about it, does he really exist?
In the latest Undy-Bomber-related news, we now learn that the CIA knew of “The Nigerian” in August and had the name of a Nigerian Muslim fanatic meeting with terrorists in Yemen in November, but somehow Abdulmutallab was allowed to fly and retain his active, U.S.-issued visa because the CIA didn’t share its vital file on Abdulmutallab outside its agency. Barry-come-lately acknowledged systemic failures yesterday afternoon—and the White House is finally running away from Janet The Clown-itano’s flirtation with the lone-nut theory.
