GOP's Susan Collins Delivers Total Beatdown of Obama's "Blind Spot" on the War on Terror - Video 1/30/10
"Less than one hour - that's right! Less than one hour!"
Here is video of GOP Sen. Susan Collins destroying the Obama Administration's approach to dealing with terrorists. Collins was delivering the GOP Weekly Address, and did a masterful job of showing the abject failure of the Obama Team to deal with terrorists like Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. They only allowed him to be questioned "less than one hour" before he was treated as a common criminal and allowed to lawyer up.
"How did we get to this place," she asked. Collins said our top intelligence officials were not even consulted before Abdulmutallab was allowed to "lawyer up," cutting off any opportunity to find out what he knows about Al-Qaeda Arabian Peninsula, or further planned attacks against the United States.
Collins said Obama's Administration has a "blind spot" when it comes to the War on Terror.
"The Obama administration appears to have a blind spot when it comes to the War on Terrorism. . . . Theres no other way to explain the irresponsible, indeed dangerous, decision on Abdulmutallab's interrogation. There's no other way to explain the inconceivable treatment of him as if he were a common criminal. This charade must stop. Foreign terrorists are enemy combatants and they must be treated as such. The safety of the American people depends on it."That was masterful, and a total beatdown of the Obama Administration's approach to the Terrorist threat facing our nation.
