Apparently, the Senate is having a hard time finding an answer to this question.

You would think that the heads of the top three intelligence agencies, the Director of National Intelligence, the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center, and the Secretary of Homeland Security, would have had a say in the decision, right?

Quote:
“These officials were never consulted by the Department of Justice. The decision was made without them.”
WHO made the decision?

We have this headline to ponder;

Not an Onion Headline | The Weekly Standard

SENATORS INTRODUCE BILL TO REQUIRE INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS BE CONSULTED ABOUT ARRESTED FOREIGN TERRORISTS

Quote:
Abdulmutallab had provided some information to law enforcement officials in the hours immediately after his capture, and we surely would have obtained more if we had treated this foreign terrorist as an enemy belligerent and placed him in the military tribunal system.”

Her bill would require that the nation’s senior intelligence officials be consulted before the decision is made to try future foreign terrorists in civilian court.
A truly stunning statement. We need legislation to enforce the notion that the nation's intelligence agencies have a say in how foreign terrorists are handled.

This is truly incredible.

I think it is clear obama and holder made the decision which prevented further intelligence being gleened from the bomber.

Quote:
Who made the decision necessitating a bill that now requires the consultation of counterterrorism officials in the area of counterterrorism?
On bombing suspect, tough questions for Eric Holder | Washington Examiner (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/On-bombing-suspect_-tough-questions-for-Eric-Holder-82305397.html - broken link)

Quote:
"Isn't it a fact, that after Miranda was given ... the individual stopped talking?" Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions asked Mueller.

"He did," Mueller answered. But Mueller declined to say who made the decision to grant Abdulmutallab the right to remain silent.
The dangerous games of obama and holder is truly frightening.

Didn't Obama just stand up another oversight agency to oversee all the other intelligent agencies? How much has that cost>

And then it is not used. The children are in charge.

Truly amateur hour in the WH.

How could the directors of three counter terrorism agencies have NO say in the disposition of captured terrorists?

The Dept of Homeland Security is supposed to be the central place for coordination and information.
Just ask our fearless head of Homeland Security. I'm sure she has the answer at her fingertips.

Or just simply ask the cops that put him in jail who gave that order. If the top-down don't know or won't say then go from the bottom up.
That's how the Gitmo water-boarding/torture finally got uncovered.

Why Holder and Obama, of course.

The fact that that's NOT an Onion headline makes me weak in the knees.

Democrats CANNOT be trusted with national security.

Period.

Where is Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney when you need them? By far the right trio to handle those radical muslim mother****ers.

Obama's team looks like Larry, Moe, and Curly compared to the previous Administration.

Eric Holder. This fool is going down. How did he think it was right to give Miranda rights to a terrorist who was not even a US citizen?

The decision to place the terrorist in the civilian courts has nothing to do with protecting America from terrorists..it was to make the Socialists happy.

It is obvious - Holder and obama.

Who else could run an end around the heads of the US intelligence agencies?
