POLITICO: What Obama’s Probe Is Finding: “If the dots had been connected, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian who tried to detonate the bomb, would have been denied entry to the U.S. or at least screened more thoroughly, the reviews have found. . . . Several clues to the unfolding plot were not shared sufficiently within the intelligence community. The CIA and the National Counterterrorism Center, which was created on the recommendation of the 9/11 Commission, did not adequately alert the FBI or others who might have acted on information they received.”

UPDATE: “Hoekstra deserves an apology.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: “Don’t Worry. We’ll be much better at health care.”

Plus this: “And speaking of Napolitano’s abysmal performance over the weekend… where’s Hillary? Was she made Secretary of State for the purpose of hiding her away?”
