Dennis Blair Tries To Walk It All Back

Wow. Apparently I “misconstrued” Dennis Blair’s clear statement that the HIG should have interrogated Abdulmutallab. Only thing is: the HIG isn’t actually operational.

“My remarks today before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs have been misconstrued,” Blair said in a statement just emailed to reporters. “The FBI interrogated Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab when they took him into custody. They received important intelligence at that time, drawing on the FBI’s expertise in interrogation that will be available in the HIG once it is fully operational.”

The Faith really says it all. I feel pretty confident in this post.
