Yesterday, President Obama's counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan dodged questions about the suspect being dubbed the new "underwear bomber."Now we know why.Today we've learned that the U.S. and its allies managed to insert an informant into the al Qaeda affiliate in Yemen - a remarkable feat. The would-be bomber eventually turned the explosive device to U.S. officials, as opposed to creating a threat aboard a passenger flight. American intelligence officials are apparently upset the story broke, saying it will compromise their efforts to continue to use covert tactics to protect Americans. read more

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters more than a dozen times that there was no update on the President's "evolving" view on gay marriage. read more
