All of America's top intelligence chiefs have agreed that an Al Qaeda attack on the U.S. is a "certainty" within the next few months.
Whether the Christmas Day bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, has any information which could foil that attack is currently unknown, owing to the decision by Barack Obama and Eric Holder to give him a lawyer and "the right to remain silent" after less than an hour of questioning.
The administration claims, however, that Abdulmutallab is now talking again. Only yesterday, for instance, he revealed that the mint which is left on his pillow each night tastes like "a wintery burst of yumminess."
UPDATE: Showing that he is also a "glass half full kind of guy," Attorney General Eric Holder has issued a letter stating that his decision to Mirandize Abdulmutallab was made with "no objection" from intelligence chiefs...which is the very nicest way of saying, as National Intelligence Adm Dennis Blair did under oath, that neither he nor his agency were consulted before Holder's decision was made.
Either Holder or Blair is lying. We don't think it's Blair.
