Just days after the Obama administration claimed the war on terror to be over, the FBI/CIA foiled an Al Qaeda attempt in Yemen to bring an underwear bomb onto a plane. The suspected bombmaker is Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri and he is being labeled as a brilliant bomb maker.
Republican Representative Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, says that
- we don’t know if there were arrests in this case
- the suspect is "no longer of concern to us"
King says the "recent plot is an indication that the war is not going to end in Afghanistan".
Why haven’t there been arrests in this case?
