From a report in the Washington Times:
The Nigerian accused of trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner had his suicide mission personally blessed in Yemen by Anwar al-Awlaki, the Muslim imam suspected of radicalizing the Fort Hood shooting suspect.
At the time of the Fort Hood shootings, Mr. Obama did not express outrage. Instead he cautioned Americans not to rush to judgement because the shooter was a Muslim.
Now, Obama has no choice but to condemn the attempt by a Muslim to blow up the Detroit-bound airliner and demand better security. What else can he do after his Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano said, "the system worked."
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (pictured above), the Nigerian accused of trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner, had his suicide mission personally blessed in Yemen by Anwar al-Awlaki.
The same Anwar al-Awlaki is suspected of radicalizing the Fort Hood shooter.
Bombing suspect Abdulmutallab has boasted of his jihad training to the FBI and has said it included final exhortations by Mr. al-Awlaki.
Abdulmutallab was told, “You are going to be the tip of the spear of the Muslim nation.”
