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?
Brennan= We’re So Dead
I am so sick of the crud coming out of these losers I could scream.
Hey Brennan, conservatives learned criticism from the best of 'em for 8 years, so just STFU.
"I see whiners everywhere!"
The Dems simply cannot accept the fact that people with legitimate and very different policy views are not just troublemakers. They never figured that out on Obamacare and they are not figuring it out on national defense. Everything is politics to these guys. They know how to get elected. They just don’t know how to govern.

Obamites: Sounds like you are spewing hate speech. You need to sit down and shut up.
Impeach Barack Obama
No Doubt! Just look at Obama. Hatian Police arrest a bunch of Missionarys. A real man would just send a Platoon of Marines over there and Free them. Obama he just sit there like the Tar Baby.
Oh, boy ...
“It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody that al Qaeda is attempting to carry out an attack,” Brennan said.
The Christmas Day attempt, in which AbdulMutallab allegedly failed to detonate explosives sewn into his underwear on a U.S. airliner, showed the effectiveness of U.S. efforts to deter large-scale attacks since the September 11, 2001, use of hijacked planes to crash into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, he said.
“It showed how difficult it is for al Qaeda to carry out large-scale attacks,” Brennan said. Instead, the group now uses individual operatives to try to carry out smaller attacks, he said.
“If you want to work for us, you have to be a pussy”
Gee Brennan, what’s to criticize? al Qaeda gets on a plane and nearly succeeds in blowing it up and Holder gets him a lawyer. The Kenyan and the national security staff were on vacation and couldn’t be bothered to get excited.
Exactly what I said to my wife. What is the dope waiting for on this one, in fact, he has been mute on the subject. Oh I get it, they are Baptists and therefore Christians.
Huffington is an evil witch (or should I change the w- to a b-?
Holder makes me puke.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab should have been cuffed, blindfolded and sent straight to Gitmo. Anything less than that is unsatisfactory.
We better watch it, or Obama and crew will shut down Radio, TV (except MSDNC) and the ‘net. This “speech/freedom” stuff has gone too far......
It showed how difficult it is for al Qaeda to carry out large-scale attacks, Brennan said. Instead, the group now uses individual operatives to try to carry out smaller attacks, he said.
So, it was easy for Mutallub to skirt our flight security policies in Amsterrdam, to board a US flight, with no visa, with no luggage, and a one way ticket purchased with cash .. ALL AGAINST OUR SECURITY RULES, but because thank God a non-governmental alert passenger quashed the attack .. it shows
HOW DIFFICULT IT IS FOR FOR AL QUEDA TO CARRY OUT LARGE SCALE ATTACKS ????
Like maybe a total of thousands dead on the plane and on the ground IS SOMETHING WE’RE SUPPOSED TO EXPECT ?????
ASININE and terrifying!!
Obama already had his the police acted stupidly moment.
You might want to look more closely at the details of the missionary incident. Developing.
Democrats demonized President Bush personally as well as his policies. Bush accepted the attack stoically while safeguarding the nation. President Obama is rightly criticized on failed policy alone yet the Obama Administration whines like children. Obama’s thin skin permeates his inner circle.
A little light on your estimate?
Brennan should just go back to scrubbing passport records for Rats. He’s far below his pay-grade.
I commented on this on the Sunday thread. Nearly 300 on the plane and however many on the ground. Just gobsmacking.
And he’s trying to convince us that these issues are in good hands.
“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.”
And Mr. Brennan should be advised that the citizenry of the US is sick and tired of the incompetence shown by him, Obama and the rest of the administration for their utterly inadequate handling of terrorists.
What can I say: I'm an optimist!
Brennan: maybe if you did something correctly (like protect us from the crazed mooslims) then you wouldn’t get criticized. on second thought, resign immediately, sit on a porch and watch the cars go by, you freak. have a nice day.
