White House demands apology from GOP senator over national security briefing

By Michael A. Fletcher
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday that Sen. Christopher S. Bond (R-Mo.) owes the nation's intelligence community and the White House an apology for alleging in a letter to President Obama that his administration leaked classified information about terror suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to score political points.

Gibbs said no classified information was shared when the administration briefed reporters Tuesday evening. The briefing, Gibbs said, was held to offer context for information that was emerging that Abdulmutallab was again cooperating with law enforcement officials.

Continuing an aggressive pushback against Republican criticism of the administration's handling of terrorism suspects, Gibbs said that Bond was told in a Monday briefing that Abdulmutallab was again cooperating with law enforcement officials. After that , Gibbs said, the senator continued to erroneously say that the suspect had stopped talking after being read his Miranda rights.

"I would suggest that somebody that alleges that, when they know it doesn't happen, owes people an apology," the spokesman said. "Any briefing that's done here, in order to ensure that the information that's in the public is correct, is done in conjunction with many agencies and done so that information that is classified and shouldn't be released isn't released. And in this case, obviously, it was not."

In his letter to Obama on Thursday, Bond questioned the administration's reason for the briefing, suggesting that it was done for political reasons.

"It is deeply disturbing to me that the Intelligence Committee would be advised of sensitive information, and told of the vital imperative to keep such information secret for the sake of national security, only to see this information -- less than 24 hours later -- broadcast to the world from the White House," Bond wrote.

Bond also criticized the decision to treat Abdulmutallab as a criminal suspect. The young Nigerian is charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound jetliner with a bomb sewn in his underwear on Christmas Day.

"Because we treated him in this fashion, we ... advised him of his right to remain silent, losing five crucial weeks for obtaining imminent threat information," Bond wrote. Such advice from law enforcement agents "is issued when statements from the accused are needed to obtain a conviction, but in this case we did not need his own statements as the chemical evidence he was wearing and 200 witnesses would ably suffice."

"Establishment media", PLEASE be fair on this topic!
Obama released info on the bomber's "cooperation" TO PROP UP HIS POLITICAL STANDING.
The facts are pretty darn clear here.
Just like the Valerie Plame leak to protect Bush, this is the worst sort of behavior for our leaders.
Sen. Bond is totally correct, and this newspaper should ADMIT IT.
Otherwise you lose MORE credibility.

American citizens are now being placed on a secret "hit list" of people whom the President has personally authorized to be killed:

"Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair acknowledged in a congressional hearing on Wednesday that the U.S. may, with executive approval, deliberately target and kill U.S. citizens who are suspected of being involved in terrorism."

"suspect"?

What about the Sixth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States? The right to confront your accuser and the right to a PUBLIC trial. Who in the U.S. government has delegated authority outside of the Constitutional framework to authorize the murder of a U.S. citizen?

Not only should Bond apologize, but so should McConnell, who has made outrageously stupid and incorrect statements in the last few days on the Christmas bomber situation. Obama's handling of this terrorist has yielded what can only be termed an anti-terrorist bonanza. Yes, we can beat terrorism without giving up our American values, Sen. McConnell. Oh and, by the way, Sen. Susan Collins, you too were wrong yesterday when you said that only American citizens are entitled to constitutional rights. In case you didn't know it, anyone charged under the American Criminal Justice System is entitled to such rights. Also, the Obama administration was following procedures established under the Bush administration - procedures estabished by Bush's last attorney general that those committing terrorist acts on American soil are criminally charged. Bush prosecuted over 300 terrorist suspects this way.

As we have now learned, since the Bush Administration, it has been standard procedure for those who commit terrorist acts on American soil to be charged and prosecuted under our criminial justice system. The former attorney general estabished these procedures and around 300 terrorists were prosecuted by Bush in this way. Those of you who said he should not have been given Miranda warnings are just dead wrong, like Sen. Susan Collins who said erroneously yesterday that only American Citizens are entitled to these warnings. That was totally wrong. Anyone charged with a crime in the American criminal justice system is entitle to such warnings. And what did the Obama prosecution of this case yield so far? Well, a terrorist who is now singing like a bird and providing all kind of valuable info that has already led to productive anti-terrorist action. This issue has been so completely politicized by the GOP that it's not even funny.

What is it that our President and Hugo Chavez have in common?

In a question and answer session with the Senate Democrats yesterday, Obama gave his colleagues some odd advice.

The president’s advice came in answer to a question from Sen. Mike Bennet, D-CO, who is facing a difficult re-election fight back home and wanted to know what Democrats and Republicans can do "to fix this institution so that our democracy can actually withstand the test that we're facing right now."
"You know what I think would actually make a difference, Michael? I think if everybody here -- excuse all the members of the press who are here -- if everybody here turned off your CNN, your Fox, your blogs," Obama said, before being interrupted by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA, who piped up, "And MSNBC!"
Obama, appropriately reminded of the network with shows more friendly to liberals, continued, "Just turn off the TV -- MSNBC, blogs -- and just go talk to folks out there, instead of being in this echo chamber where the topic is constantly politics. ... It is much more difficult to get a conversation focused on how are we going to help people than a conversation about how is this going to help or hurt somebody politically."
Reid replied to Obama's request with,

"Mr. President, you've told me -- suggested -- don't pay any attention to the blogs, don't listen to talk radio, don't watch cable TV. And I follow that advice pretty good."
Great advice, Obama, but Reid and some of your other Democrat followers are going to need a little better guidance than that if they want to stand a chance at keeping their seats this election cycle!

The vast majority of the borrow and spend programs were rushed down America's throat in 2001 - 2002. When Republicans held both House and Senate, and used reconciliation to force Democrats to have no say whatever.

The current debacle belongs entirely at the feet of Shrub, the Republicans, and the Reaganites who sold us tax cuts uber alles.

Yeah. Make him apologize.
From now on, the Obamistas should keep every contact, every meeting, every telephone call with the GOP's side & note what the discussion was about. The lament that the Administration doesn't talk to those poor foolish Republicans about anything is getting real old. When that becomes a mantra, the best way to refute the charges is to get REAL specific if called upon to do so. As a Party of professional "NO-sters," the GOP are hypocdrites & consummate liars. They're the ones who allowed their President & Vice President, Secretary of Defense, to toss two wars to the American people who weren't asked to pay "war taxes." War taxes would have significantly reduced our deficit, and there would be every reason in the world there for taxing the richest of the rich.

jfoster13,

It does not matter wich party has a president in office, we have to remember they don't do everything by themselves they can't.

My point is the congress and the senate has members of both parties voting on issues, so everyone has a part of the blame and the credit on how the country does as a whole.

I agree Bush started the spending but let's not forget that the democrats had a majority in the House.

I hate how the country is divided on everything, a house divided cannot stand.

Agree, every President inherits good and bad from previous administrations, but when Obama keeps getting blamed for a trillion dollar deficit (which started under Bush) and for TARP (which started under Bush), I don't blame him for wanting to set the record straight. For nearly 2 years the Bush administration kept carping about the depression they inherited from Clinton, so both sides do it.

His entire presidency was an embarrassment to the U.S. And it is the damage he inflicted on our reputation, our economy and our constitutional rights that we are all trying to recover from.

Being criticized by ANY Republican on "terror" issues is akin to being called ugly by an ape. Champions of the political point scoring ploy, they reveal their own dishonor when they make such ignorant statements.

Starting with Ronald Reagan in 1987, the US policy is to treat terrorists EXACTLY as Obama did, as criminals, period (you acn, of course, look this up). Every subsequent conviction, including ALL the ones from the Bush/Cheney era, were gotten in federal civilian courts--including Richard reid, who was Mirandized within 5 MINUTES of capture. St. Ronnie said that the rule of law and open trials are the greatest protection from terrorism, but now that Obama is doing it, the hypocrites of the right are in high dungeon. As for the release of information well, the last 8 years of the Republican misrule gave us a pretty clear picture of how "classified' quickly loses its cachet when it points out inconvenient policy blunders.

Reagan also said that any torture is a criminal act and needs prosecution--wonder if phonies like Bond, McConnell and especially Darth Cheney et al can recognize the complete ass backwardsness of their criticisms, or their appalling ignorance of what the Constitution says?
