WASHINGTON — It seemed refreshing when the Obama administration released a report on the the intelligence community’s failure to connect the dots that could have prevented the Christmas Day bombing attempt aboard a Detroit bound plane.

But the New York Times reports that there “were far more warning signs than the administration has acknowledged.”

The paper says that the President met on Dec. 22 with officials from the FBI, CIA and Homeland Security and there was concern about a terrorist attack over the Christmas Holiday.

And in early November, the paper reported, that “American intelligence authorities say they learned from a communications intercept of Qaeda followers in Yemen that a man named “Umar Farouk” — the first two names of the jetliner suspect, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab — had volunteered for a coming operation.”
