Security: Nothing done.
( my comments in CAPS, G )
The following message by Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair was sent to employees of the United States Intelligence Community:
We had strategic intelligence that al Qa’ida in the Arab Peninsula (AQAP) had the intention of taking action against the United States. We did not direct more resources against AQAP, nor insist that the watchlisting criteria be adjusted.
THEY KNEW AQ WAS COMING BUT DIDN'T GIVE TSA ACCESS TO THE WATCHLIST, AND STILL HAVE NOT
GIVEN THEN ACCESS TO THE WATCH LIST.G
( Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment. TIDE LIST, they all get striped searched, G )
The Intelligence Community analysts who were working hard on immediate threats to Americans in Yemen did not understand the fragments of intelligence on what turned out later to be Mr. Abdulmutallab, so they did not push him onto the “no fly” list.
HIS DAD CALLED THE CIA AND OTHERS TO WARN THEM. THEY PUT HIM ON A WATCH LIST AND DID NOT GIVE
TSA ACCESS TO THE WATCH LIST, THIS WOULD HAVE GIVEN TSA REASON TO DO A STRIP SEARCH.G
Enhancing the criteria for adding individuals to the terrorist watchlist and “no fly” watchlist.
WHICH TSA DOESN'T HAVE ACCESSS TO.G
While the December 25 attempt exposed improvement needs and flaws in coordination, it did not expose weakness in the concepts of intelligence reform or suggest that its progress should be redirected. The Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act (IRTPA) and the progress of the past five years will continue to guide our future improvements.

The job of collecting, analyzing, and integrating information on a global scale is difficult, and this community performs that work at high levels every day. We will sustain our dedication and professionalism to the tasks we now face. We will leverage this challenge to emerge even stronger and more able to provide the support to national security that President Obama hailed as critical to our future.
We will meet this challenge. I am confident that together we will deliver to the President the improvements he has called for.
THEY HAVEN'T DONE DIDDLY, OUR PARADIGM INTEL SUGGESTS THE GOVERNMENT HASN'T COME CLEAN ABOUT ALL THEY KNEW ON THIS CASE.G
Dennis C. Blair
WE ARE NOT ANY SAFER NOW THAN BEFORE THIS INCIDENT, STILL FUMBLING.
The White House concluded in a report issued Thursday that "a series of systematic breakdowns"
contributed to the failure to prevent the failed Christmas Day bombing of a trans-Atlantic airliner bound for Detroit.
The White House review found the complex system of maintaining multiple watch lists "is not broken,"
but John Brennan, the deputy national security adviser who supervised the review, said the process of feeding information into the watch list system must be strengthened.
Talking out of both sides of their mouth and saying NOT A DAMN THING.
It wasn't broken it never worked,G
