The Obama administration barely escaped 2009's second successful terrorist attack on American soil when Umar Abdulmutallab's bomb failed to fully detonate as Flight 253 was descending into Detroit.
As much as we'd like to joke about an "underpants bomb," this is far from a laughing matter. Although Abdulmutallab had known terror connections, and despite the fact that his father had warned US officials months ago, his name was not on the "no fly" list. And it was only two weeks ago that the TSA accidentally released their top secret security manual online, making it possible (and in all likelihood a certainty) that Abdulmutallab knew his bomb components would pass airport security screenings.
And so Umar's 72 virgins will be kept waiting...while the American people keep waiting for this president to get serious about terrorism.
