The FBI got ‘usable, actionable’ intel from terrorism suspect

FBI agents got “usable, actionable intelligence”
from the suspect accused of trying to blow up a flight on Christmas
Day, according to a White House spokesman.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said FBI investigators
“gleaned” information from Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab after a failed
attempt to bomb a Northwest Airlines flight to Detroit.

{mosads}President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with his national security team Tuesday
afternoon to continue a review of the “systemic failure” that allowed
Abdulmutallab to board the flight. Obama met with several officials in the Oval
Office Monday afternoon as well.

The president is “anxious” to talk to his team to figure
out where the security breakdown occurred, according to Gibbs who added that the review will not
end with Tuesday’s meeting.

Obama is scheduled to make remarks after his meeting.
