Helen Thomas presses John Brennan and Janet Napolitano during the White House press conference on the Christmas Underwear bomber on why Al Qaeda wants to attack us -- and of course never gets an answer to her question before they move on to the next reporter.

I'm sure if Brennan had answered her honestly he would have been immediately attacked by Republicans for giving aid and comfort to the terrorists and for not loving America since that would mean admitting how awful our foreign policy is.

Can you help us out?
