"It's been widely reported that the father of the suspect in the Christmas incident warned U.S. officials in Africa about his son's extremist views," Obama said. "It now appears that weeks ago, this information was passed to a component of our intelligence community but was not effectively distributed so as to get the suspect's name on a no-fly list.""God darnit, Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore."
"Had this critical information been shared, it could have been compiled with other intelligence, and a fuller, clearer picture of the suspect would have emerged," Obama said. "The warning signs would have triggered red flags, and the suspect would have never been allowed to board that plane for America."
He praised the dedication and professionalism of U.S. intelligence services, crediting them with saving the lives of Americans every day. But he added that the inability to take proper action on "information on a known extremist" showed the system had failed.
Does it bother anyone else, especially any other teabaggers, that MaObama uses the same term to describe a terrorist and teabagger? The population has elected a real doozy this time.
