(Adds background, details)

WASHINGTON, Feb 2 (BestGrowthStock) – The Nigerian man accused of
trying to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day, Umar Farouk
Abdulmutallab, is cooperating again with U.S. authorities and
has provided “useful intelligence,” a law enforcement official
said on Tuesday.

The Obama administration has been widely criticized by
Republicans and Democrats because the suspect was interviewed
by FBI agents for only about an hour before he stopped
cooperating and he was then read Miranda rights, providing him
full U.S. constitutional legal rights.

Prosecutors charged Abdulmutallab, 23, with trying to blow
up a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit with a bomb hidden in his
underwear, drawing further criticism from some lawmakers who
said he should face a special military court instead.

“Abdulmutallab is talking and has been talking since last
week providing useful, actionable and current intelligence that
we’ve been actively following up on,” the official said. He
declined further comment because the investigation is ongoing.

If he is convicted, Abdulmutallab could face spending the
rest of his life in a U.S. prison, which could provide an
incentive for him to cooperate with authorities.

Abdulmutallab told investigators when he was arrested that
he had received training and the explosive device from
militants associated with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
