There can only be 2 reasons that the administration has leaked news that accused terrorist Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab is talking to US security officials. 1. They are lying Or 2. They're stupid No sensible person would EVER tell the world, "Hey, this guy is talking to us!" so they can all scatter and run. A top former US security official stated that the right way to show that this guy talked to us is to go kill some terrorist and display their heads.... I'd have to agree wholeheartedly. Meanwhile, 5 top US security officials state that there is near certainty that there will be a terrorist attack on US soil in the next 6 months.
