Here is video of President Obama yesterday speaking on the reports he received regarding the Christmas Day Terror Attack attempt on Northwest Airlines Flight 253. Obama said there were multiple failures that allowed Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to get on board that flight with bomb material in his underwear.
Obama said he is not looking to place blame, and said that ultimately "the buck stops with me."
Obama did say we are involved in a "War against Al-Qaeda," but would never really identify the enemy as Islamic Jihadists. He continues to prefer to call them "violent extremists."
The President pledged his administration would do whatever it takes to keep the American people safe.
