It’s good to see that even on Christmas day Rep King is in the job.

You can bet he is going to beat Bambi over the head about his complacency on the matter.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., identified the suspect as Abdul Mudallad. King said the flight began in Nigeria and went through Amsterdam en route to Detroit.

I feel safer with Obama gone. The terrorists certainly aren’t afraid of him. I think they think he’s their friend.
