Barack Obama And Intellligence Gathering Discipline: Time For Unity And Bipartisan Support!

President Obama has made it clear that there was no lack of intelligence information regarding the Christmas Day bomber incident, but that the intelligence agencies had failed to “connect the dots”.

He declared that this cannot be allowed to occur again, and that the intelligence agencies MUST coordinate and work together, rather than continue the old game of fighting for their own turf and failing to share information they gain through various means.

Eight years after September 11, and with the creation of the Homeland Security Department in 2003, there is absolutely no excuse for politics around the issue of national security.

Obama has again asserted that the fight against terrorism is fully understood, and it is time for the Republican party to stop politicizing the issue, and therefore undermining the national commitment to cooperation, and making the fight against terrorism all the more difficult!
