U.S. President Barack Obama, for the first time, has publicly connected the suspect who tried to blow up a U.S.-bound passenger plane on Christmas Day, December 25, to al-Qaida.
In his weekly radio and Internet address released early Saturday on the White House Web site, Mr. Obama said it appeared a Yemeni affiliate of al-Qaida trained the suspect, "equipped him with ... explosives, and directed him to attack" the plane "headed for America."
Mr. Obama said the group had attacked American targets before, including killing an American at the U.S. Embassy in Yemen in 2008. He said the U.S. government is strengthening its partnership with Yemen "to strike al-Qaida terrorists."

So much for “It’s an isolated incident” and “There was no wider plot”. How the MSM lets him get away with it is inconceivable.
