Never mind that New York lost thousands of people on 9/11 and the city remains the nation’s No. 1 terror target.
If Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly wanted to know more about the foiled Yemeni underwear bomb plot, he could have picked up the phone and called, Mueller sniffed.
“As I told Ray, he’s always welcome to call,” he said, repeatedly referring to the commissioner as “Ray.”
Mueller found himself being grilled by Sen. Chuck Schumer about his secret-hoarding after Kelly fumed Friday that the NYPD had been left in the dark on the details of the plot.
“That’s the type of information, quite frankly, that we need, deserve,” Kelly vented.
Schumer suggested Mueller’s failure to brief Kelly underscored a growing rift between the FBI and NYPD.
Mueller may say the FBI and the NYPD work well together, but an FBI source said that’s far from true.
