President Obama and senior advisers last month consideredand rejectedthe notion that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the accused Christmas Day underpants bomber, should be handed over to the U.S. military for interrogation and detention, NEWSWEEK has learned. The subject of whether Abdulmutallab should be transferred to military custody came up at a meeting the president held in the White House Situation Room in early January, shortly before the Justice Department announced it would proceed against him in the civilian court system, according to little-noticed statements made by one or more "senior administration officials" who gave a background briefing to White House reporters on February 2.
According to a transcript of the briefing, the subject of whether Abdulmutallab ought to be turned over to the military came up at a Situation Room meeting that appears to have been held on January 5, the day before the accused underpants attacker was formally charged with terrorist offenses under federal law. During the meeting, according to a White House briefer, Attorney General Eric Holder announced: "I'm going to charge him tomorrow." At that point, according to the briefer, "there was a discussion about whether or not in fact there was going to be any type of change in his custodial disposition."

...????...thought it was all Holder
Wonder if Obama would consider transferring his custody to the Peoples’ Militia?
Senior Advisers = CZARs ?
The un-elected un-approved Elite actually have power in DC ?
Even Pelosi doesn’t have Power.
Send the terrorists to Pelosi for interrogation. LOL
Send Obama out from the castle to meet with the militia!
"Impeach Obama Says Sister of Cole Sailor Killed in Terror Attacks
"The sister of Seaman James McDaniels, a sailor killed in the terror attack on the U.S.S. Cole wants President Barack Hussein Obama impeached
over his decision to withdraw charges against the al Qaeda mastermind of the attack."
"Mother of USS Cole Sailor Declines Obama-meet, Says "I Voted for the Wrong Person"
"After Obama dropped the charges against the suspect in the bombing of the USS Cole,
he asked the families of the victims in that tragedy to meet with him.
One mother refused, and now says,"I voted for the wrong person."
Ten days too late.
An Absolutely Dispicable Kenyan Village Idiot might be a better choice for Our President than the Individual We are Stuck With!
Criminals usually have a difficult time synchronizing their storyline when apprehended but Obama and Holder are not in a jail cell!
Obama is inviting further attacks.
Obama is treasonous.
That was last week's lie.
This is malfeasance at best and more likely treason.
I wonder if the average thinking American actually thought Holder would be acting without the blessing of Obama. Even if it was Holder’s decision Obama could have stepped in to change it if that had been his intention. I hope the American see this for what it is: an attempt to use Holder for a sacrificial lamb.
