(Newser) – Perhaps a little too pumped up by his new 41-59 majority in the Senate, Republican leader Mitch McConnell lashed the Obama administration for allowing would-be Detroit bomber Umar Farouq Abdulmutallab to lawyer up.

“He was given a 50-minute interrogation, probably Larry King has interrogated people longer and better than that,” McConnell told Fox News today. “After which he was assigned a lawyer who told him to shut up. That is not the way to deal with someone in the war on terror.”
