Kurt Haskell, Detroit area attorney and fellow passenger with “underbomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab on Northwest Airlines flight 253, discusses Abdulmutallab’s surprising guilty plea that means Haskell can’t be a defense witness; why the well-dressed man who helped Abdulmutallab board the plane in the Netherlands is probably an undercover intelligence agent for the US; waiting for sentencing in January after the story disappears from the news cycle; and the cumulative circumstantial evidence that shows the US government purposely gave Abdulmutallab a defective bomb to stage a terrorist attack.
