Counter-Terrorism Chief John Brennan On Fox News Sunday: “DHS Has Done An Outstanding Job Since 9/11”

From 9/11/2001 to 1/20/2009 DHS did do an outstanding job keeping us safe. But at some point in the late Spring of ’09, the Obama administration made some changes in the monitoring of terrorist suspects. Now some are speculating that these changes have allowed the  terrorist attacks that have taken place on American soil since Obama’s been in office.

We’ve had two successful attacks: the fatal shooting of one soldier and the critical injury of another at a Little Rock, Ark recruiting office by suspect, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad and the Fort Hood shooting in which  Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire at a military base in Texas, killing 13 people and wounding 28.

And two near misses: The Christmas Day attack on flight 253 by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab that was only foiled by his ineptly constructed underwear bomb, and the May 1 failed Times Square bombing attempt by Faisal Shahzad, again foiled only by his own inept bomb-making skills.

John Brennan bristled at the charge that we “got lucky” in the last two terror attempts. He evoked the troops,  insinuating that it was unpatriotic to criticize the job the Obama administration’s doing to keep us safe.

Senator Lieberman and Rep. Pete King followed Brennen on Fox News Sunday. King in particular has some questions for the administration, that he wants answered.
