My Comment: Is this an intelligence failure .... or a lack of political will from Washington to put pressure on the capture and detention of these criminals/terrorists? I do not know the answer to that question .... but I do know that after three months .... we still do not know with specificity on who was responsible for this attack .... just a list of names of the usual suspects.
