The United States Intelligence is a JOKE

I don't blame President Obama for being angry at this country's intelligence. Period. When you have the terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's father walk into the United States Embassy and TELL personnel about his son and what he is up to, but this intelligence is not noted, moved on, even LOOKED at but this individual is on the many lists of "terrorists" and he almost blows up a U.S. aircraft, how would you feel.

I don't know if the CIA and all these other agencies are politicizing terrorists, terrorism, etc., but if they are anyone with this information and was not acted on should be FIRED.

What happened to all these agencies sharing information? Actionable information is gotten from HUMANS, not drones, not chatter, but humans with specifics. Abdulmatallab's father had actionable information, he knew that his son was coercing with potential terrorists and he did the right thing, he reported it.

What did we do? Not a damn thing.

This needs to STOP and the Republicans, "shame on you" for trying to politicize something like this. Much of what is in place and still going on was on YOUR WATCH and the same measures that President Obama is currently using were the same measures from President Bush. And of course, there was NO criticism then but now. Republicans your argument does not hold up, period. What about trying to help this President and our country instead of continuously pointing the "fucking finger"?
