MSM reports Obama State Dept. failed to connect the dots

As hard as I'm sure they tried not too two media allies of the Obama administration can't ignore the facts and have to report the truth of Janet Napolitanos' system working to stop terrorists from trying to blow up airliners. The Washington Post and CBS News are both reporting that Obamas' State Department completely dropped the ball concerning the matter of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab even though they were being warned of his jihadist motives by his own family. This news was not important enough for Obama to be distracted by while he was busy ramrodding health care through Congress.

From CBS News:
CBS News has learned the State Department system designed to keep track of active U.S. visas twice failed to reveal Nigerian terror suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had been issued an active visa allowing him multiple entries into the United States.

According to a law enforcement source, the first failure came on Nov. 19, 2009, the very same day Abdulmutallab father’s, Dr. Umaru Mutallab, a prominent banking official in Nigeria, expressed deep concern to officials at the U.S. Embassy in Abjua, Nigeria, that his 23-year-old son had fallen under the influence of "religious extremists" in Yemen.

The second failure to flag an active visa belonging to Abdulmuttalab occurred the very next day in Washington, after Mutallab's concerns were forwarded to officials there. It was only after the Christmas Day terror attack in Detroit that U.S. officials learned that Abdulmuttalab had been issued a visa by the U.S. Embassy in London valid from June 16, 2008, through June 12, 2010.
