What did you expect would happen if you let down your guard? If you announce to the world that the terrorist threat has passed? “Oh, they’re all in Raqqa or wherever, bringing on the end of the world over there with their goats.” If you stop pushing back against them here, every minute, if you are that stupid, what do you get? Boom! That’s what you get! Madam President-elect, I hope you’re listening and, if you are, hear me now, you brought this down on us. You did! If you want a fight, and apparently you do, if you want a fight, you’ve got one from me, in spades. You’ve got the fight of your life!
DAR: I’d like to bring you up to speed on the attack and a few unfortunate facts you should be aware of. The bombers name was Sekou Bah, an American Muslim of Nigerian decent. He’d just been released from the Metropolitan Detention Center where he was awaiting trial on federal terrorism charges. KEANE: Wait, we had him in custody? DAR: We did. He was being defended pro bono by a nonprofit in Brooklyn. They got the case thrown out on procedural grounds. But there’s something you should know. I’m afraid one of our former officers works at this nonprofit and was very involved in the case, Carrie Mathison.
