WASHINGTON (Indiana's NewsCenter) - In a televised speech, President Obama expressed his outrage surrounding a report released detailing the missed clues that may have prevented a terror suspect from boarding a flight Christmas Day to Detroit.

President Obama said, “In our every changing world America’s first line of defense is timely accurate intelligence. That is shared, integrated, analyzed and acted upon quickly and effectively. That’s what the intelligent reforms after the 9/11 attacks largely achieved. That’s what our intelligence community does every day. But unfortunately that’s not what happened in the lead up to Christmas Day.”

The President isn't expected to fire anyone over the incident at least for now.

6th District Indiana Congressman Mike Pence is questioning the Obama Administration's treatment Of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

Saying a civilian court is no place for a terrorism suspect.

Pence says, “This administration, views terrorism as a domestic law enforcement issue. I think it's appalling that the underwear bomber in Detroit, was immediately read this rights, provided an attorney at taxpayer expense, and will be tried in civilian criminal courts in this country.”
