Obama Admits Failures In Preventing Christmas Day Terror Attempt

It was an "unacceptable systemic failure" that allowed a Nigerian man to allegedly attempt to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam as it was on final approach to Detroit Metro Airport on Christmas Day.

That's the assessment of President Obama in his second message in as many days to the nation about the incident.

The White House also says they've confirmed a link between the suspect, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, an al Qaeda.
