If so, it adds an interesting wrinkle.
Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, believed to be the suspected terrorist’s father, told a Nigerian news outlet that six months ago he alerted the U.S. Embassy to his son’s fanatical religious views, the Post reported.
He allegedly told Nigerian newspaper This Day that he had informed both the U.S. Embassy and the Nigerian security services of his 23-year-old son Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s activities, the Post reported.
I’ll admit to not keeping up with this story very closely (we had more Christmas stuff today, so I was startled to see this story on Drudge this morning around 10 a.m.). But regardless of the extent of those activities, it’s be very disturbing indeed if we didn’t heed warnings from the guy’s own father.
