Republicans to Hit Obama Terror Policy in Hearings on Domestic Attacks

"The Christmas Day airline bombing suspect should have been questioned by special interrogators instead of federal law enforcement investigators before his case entered the criminal justice system, the nation's top intelligence official testified before Congress today.

Dennis Blair, the Director of National Intelligence, told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that he was not asked whether the suspect should have been treated as a high-value terror suspect upon landing in Detroit and handled first by the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group, (HIG) which the Obama administration created last year.

"That unit was created exactly for this purpose, to make a decision on whether...a certain person who's detained should be treated as...a case for federal prosecution." Blair said. "

That's because the Democrats are not serious about terrorism and treat it just like any other crime.
