Obama Lashes Back At Counterterrorism Critics

By Justine Frostad — Obama officials are lashing out at U.S. Lawmakers. Lawmakers are accusing the Obama administration of mishandling the arrest of a Nigerian accused of trying to blow-up a plane Christmas day. The accused is being tried in criminal court and given legal rights. Critics say this prevents u-s intelligence from interrogating him about possible future attacks. But Obama officials say he has continued to provide information to counterterrorism officials.
