Video: Senator Kit Bond Slams Obama Administration’s Loose Lips On Intelligence

After Obama’s Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs simpered that critics of the administration’s handling of the Christmas panty-bomber case owe the Obama administration an apology, my Senator didn’t hold back. No apologies were forthcoming, and no quarter. He says the administration owes the American people an apology:

Did GOP know about EunuchBomber’s Miranda treatment?

John Brennan claims that GOP leadership in Congress had been briefed by the Obama administration about the arrest of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and the decision to handle his case through the criminal justice system.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra, and Senator Bond both deny it.

Bond says:

Sen. Bond responds, saying Brennan “never told” him of the plan to Mirandize Abdulmutallab. Bond’s entire statement:

["]Brennan never told me any of plans to Mirandize the Christmas Day bomber — if he had I would have told him the administration was making a mistake. The truth is that the administration did not even consult our intelligence chiefs, as DNI Blair testified, so it’s absurd to try to blame Congressional leaders for this dangerous decision that gave terrorists a five week head start to cover their tracks.["]

Ed Morrissey adds:

If the White House didn’t consult Mueller or Blair, why would they have picked up the phone and called Bond and Hoekstra? Brennan’s claim that a call giving the two the outline of the attack somehow amounts to acquiescence of the point of Mirandizing a terrorist before fully interrogating him is ludicrous, and obviously self-serving. It’s almost as bad as Janet Napolitano’s “the system worked” spin on the Sunday after Christmas.

    We only hear what we want to hear. Bond is a member of the Intelligence Team. Why is he and his other GOP partners do not know the process of the FBI and the other agencies? Is not this their job to know this stuff? Come on people, wake up or you could be the next one not given Miranda rights!!!! Do not let these politicians take our freedoms away just to win their seat and compare humorous notes about the stupidity of us Americans!
