Expert: CIA missed glaring red flags

    Isnt it interesting that Muslims defend the desecreation of the Quran but allow terrorists to use Mosques as firing platforms killing innocent children, woman and families.

    Its time the Mosques be destoyed if the local IMAMs allow them to be used by Terrorists.

    Maybe buring Quran and blowing up Mosques will finally get the attention of all Muslims to stop the murder of innocents.

    And this expert is stating it's a slam dunk it won't happen to the CIA again? Explain the subsequent bomb in the trashcan nearby less than a week afterwords as a reminder that the CIA are now targets.

    President Obama would do well to completely purge the CIA of all officers that remain loyal to former vp Dick Cheney before further power plays between the CIA and the Executive branch Office's take place.
