Day Late, Dollar Short: Crotch Bomber Visa Revoked
The State Department says it has revoked the U.S. visa of the Nigerian man suspected of trying to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight over Detroit on Christmas Day.
Spokesman P.J. Crowley said Tuesday that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s visa was one of several the agency has revoked since the Dec. 25 incident as the result of a review into security procedures ordered by President Barack Obama. Crowley would not say when the decision on Abdulmutallab’s visa was made or how many others had been withdrawn.
