Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) told Fox News’ Chris Wallace Sunday that it is “fair” to hold the Obama administration responsible for the a failure to detect an attempted terror attack. Friday, Hoekstra told the Detroit Free Press that the Obama administration needed to “connect the dots.”

“You were quoted in the Detroit Free Press this morning as saying that, you know, the key is to connect the dots and maybe the Obama administration will now realize that. Is it really fair to hold the Obama administration responsible here?” asked Wallace.

“Yeah, I think it really is,” replied Hoekstra. “Connecting the dots here is not really on this particular case. It’s connecting the dots that we’ve seen over the last 11 months, over the last eight years.”

As Raw Story reported yesterday, Hoekstra followed-up his initial comments with a post to his Twitter account: “Administration says attempted terrorist attack. No. It was a terrorist attack! Just not as successful as they (AQ) planned.”
