Earlier I posted something about how I.C.E. had wished the ‘Dream Act’ would pass to make there jobs easier by defining borders and who they could go after and now the Head of the NS has deer eyes during interview about Terror Plots.
Doesn’t that make you feel safe?
The White House counterterrorism adviser acknowledged Wednesday that the reason the nation’s top intelligence official was stumped on an interview question two days ago about a major set of terror arrests in Great Britain was because his staff hadn’t told him about it.
Brennan explained that on the day of the interview in which Clapper stumbled, he was too busy handling tension on the Korean peninsula and congressional negotiations over a nuclear treaty with Russia to pick up on widespread reporting about the arrest of 12 men allegedly involved in an Al Qaeda-inspired plot to attack targets in Britain.
“There was breathless attention by the media about these arrests and it was constantly on the news networks,” Brennan told reporters. “I’m glad that Jim Clapper is not sitting in front of the TV 24 hours a day and monitoring what’s coming out of the media. What he is doing is focusing on those intelligence issues the president expects him to focus on.”
He said there was “no action” required of Clapper regarding the arrests in Britain. Still, he twice said Clapper should have been briefed and assured that if such a development happens again, “I’m sure that he is going to be au courant.” more
