The Systemic Failure to Connect the Dots

President Obama keeps refering to the attempted attack by the crotch bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as a systemic failure. However, what he is failing to admit is that he is the system. His administration is his system. So yes, this is a failure of his system and administration to keep the people safe.

Obama wanted an assessment as to what led to this attempted attack and what could be done in the future to prevent another act from happening.

That assessment is posted HERE.

The actions suggested for prevention are HERE.

The main theme to the assessment is that they failed to “connect the dots” with all the information that they already had. They admit that they had sufficient information prior to the attack that they could have possibly prevented it from happening.

What are some of the dots?

  • The major pieces of intelligence were collected between the months of October and December.
  • On Nov. 18, his father met with U.S. Embasy officers in Nigeria to express concern that his son was under the influence of extremists.

The main thing to take away from the Corrective Actions statement, is to try a little harder.
