WASHINGTON — Newsweek’s Michael Isikoff reports that the Obama administration was flabbergasted Wednesday when Director of National Intelligence Adm. Dennis Blair testified before Congress  and said  the infamous Christmas Day underwear bomber  should have been questioned by a special interrogation unit that doesn’t exist rather than by the FBI.

Newsweek reported that one senior official described Blair’s comments as misinformed on multiple levels. And officials were concerned it  gave Republicans more fuel for the criticism of the handling of the Detroit case.

“People are annoyed, angry, and frustrated about this,” said the senior official, who asked not to be identified, speaking about Blair’s testimony, according to Newsweek.

The official added, according to Newsweek, that the White House had ordered Blair to “correct” his remarks, which he did in the afternoon.

“He’s taking a mulligan on this,” the official said,  according to Newsweek.
