weak on national security

Dennis Blair, Obama's intelligence chief wasn't consulted about the Christmas Bomber guy, nicely illustrating the administration's cavalier attitude toward America's national security.

We've been blogging about national security in this space for five and a half years. Nothing else is as important, nothing else matters more.

The main job of our President is to keep Americans (and America) safe, but clearly, the Obama administration has dropped the ball on security. Shamefully for them, it isn't a priority.
"Blair told the Senate Homeland Security Committee that he was not consulted on whether Abdulmutallab should be questioned by the recently created High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group, or HIG, and charged in federal court.

"That unit was created exactly for this purpose," Blair said. "We did not invoke the HIG in this case. We should have."

And what's this? I actually agree with Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) on something?
"That is very troubling," Collins said. "It appears to me that we lost an opportunity to secure some valuable intelligence information, and that the process that Director Blair described should have been implemented in this case. And I think it's very troubling that it was not, and that three key intelligence officials were not asked their opinion."
Obama and Democrats don't get national security, which is one big reason so many of us on the Right believe them to be anti-American.
