(CNSNews.com) – President Obama’s counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan, speaking to reporters in the White House briefing room on Tuesday, defended James Clapper, the nation’s intelligence chief, for not knowing about the arrests of 12 suspected terrorists in London on Monday.
Clapper, in an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer hours after the arrests took place, was unable to answer her question about the situation, which the Associated Press described as the largest counterterrorism raid in nearly two years.
The arrests of the 12 men, ranging in age from 17 to 28, drew major media coverage on Monday, hours before Sawyer interviewed Clapper and Brennan.
