WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama's top counterterrorism adviser says he's tired of lawmakers and others criticizing the administration's actions concerning the Christmas airliner plot.
John Brennan says some in Washington are using national security as ''political football'' for partisan purposes. He says they're trying to micromanage the case with a ''500-mile screwdriver'' that stretches from the Capitol to the scene of the attack in Detroit.

I think it’s a requirement for this administration. If you want to work for us, you have to be a pussy.
Haven’t seen this one in a while.
Oh the hugh manitee.
Brennan got his job the old fashioned way. Corruption.
During the presidential campaign his firm breached the passport files of Obama, Clinton, and McCain. The media naturally assumed someone from the Clinton or McCain camps were behind it.
That headline really says, “Stop criticizing.”
Bennan is a complete moron.
Brennan says no recidivism among Guantanamo detainees released by Obama (YET.)
“John Brennan says some in Washington are using national security as ‘’political football’’ for partisan purposes”
Yup, Brennan’s boss & his minions certainly are.
Dear Mr. Brennan,
Of course nobody should criticize the anti-terrorism efforts of this administration since all terror related security problems until 2012 are actually Bush’s fault.
Obama has already solved any upcoming terror attacks do to his worldwide apology and butt kissing tour.
These ass clowns are going to get 100,000 Americans killed
“John Brennan says some in Washington are using national security as ‘’political football’’ for partisan purposes.”
You mean like Obama did and still does?
The shoe is on YOUR foot now. How’s that feel?
Big boy britches are still too ‘risky’ for Brennan to wear.
Hey Brennan, here a thought:
Stop Sucking and maybe we’ll shut up!!!!
Nothing but cry babies. They can’t even take Fox News and they are going to fight Al Qaeda?
It’s funny after watching the savage attack on Bush for seven years, now they are sensitive to criticism. Grow up. It’s a democracy, for as much as you want to change that, we still have the First Amendment and we will use it to protect ourselves.
How do you plea bargain with a terrorist who tried to kill 300 innocent people? Hilder reduces his sentence! A reduced sentence! What are our citizens lives worth?
Obama and Holder have done a terrible disservice to this nation - and they wanted a political show trial in NY which thankfully is not going to happen. They deserve the criticism.
That made me laugh. Well said.
Brennan is just another of Obamas “experts” who couldn’t strategize his way out of a paper bag.
But we're not supposed to criticize this incompetent, bumbling, half-witted administration because we fear the political pigskin accusation? Give me a break.
Every time this moron's boss talks about the "mess we inherited" he's using W as a political football.
That’s because they couldn’t identify the bodies! Hard to identify after they’ve been blown apart by a bomb.
“I think those counterterrorism professionals deserve the support of our Congress,” he said. “And rather than second-guessing what they are doing on the ground with a 500- mile screwdriver from Washington to Detroit, I think they have to have confidence in the knowledge and the experience of these counterterrorism professionals.”
Why is everybody always pickin on Obama?
