Michigan State University
Athletic , Director Mark Hollis
announced Friday that MSU's new
brand identity program will include
the current Spartan logo - not the
revised one - according to an arti-
cle in The State News.
After an overwhelmingly nega-
tive response from alumni, students
and fans, MSU officials decided to
stay with the current design.
"After careful consideration, we
will use the current Spartan logo
design - first used in the late 1970s
- to build our visual brand identi-
ty," Hollis said in the article.
Hollis added that the brand iden-
tity program will continue its part-
nership with Nike to help create a
consistent and cohesive brand iden-
tity for the university.

overall donations, the university

ed with this level of support is a real
testament to the generosity of our
alumni, parents and friends," Martin
Shell, Stanford's vice president for
Development, said in the article.

Security adviser to GOP: Stop criticizing anti-terror effort

White House under
fire for security
approach after
Christmas Day attack
exasperated White House newly
committed to preaching partisan
peace slammed Republicans for
playing politics on national secu-
rity and making ignorant allega-
tions about the investigation into
the Christmas airliner plot.
Deputy national security advis-
er John Brennan complained yes-

terday that politicians, many of
them Republicans, were unfairly
criticizing the administration for
partisan purposes and second-
guessing the case with a "500-
mile screwdriver" that reaches
from Washington to the scene of
the abortive attack in Detroit.
"Quite frankly, I'm tiring of
politicians using national secu-
rity issues such as terrorism as
a political football," Brennan
said. "They are going out there.
They're unknowing of the facts.
And they're making charges and
allegations that are not anchored
in reality."
Brennan's comments on "NBC's

"Meet the Press" came a day after
President Barack Obama urged
Democrats to work with Repub-
licans, telling those attending the
Democratic Party's winter meet-
ing that "we can't solve all of our
problems alone." The president
offered a similar message to a
recent gathering of House Repub-
Republicans have been par-
ticularly vocal in criticizing the
Obama administration's decision
to charge accused bomber Umar
Farouk Abdulmutallab in crimi-
nal rather than military court
and allowing him tobe advised of
his rights, the so-called Miranda

warning. In contrast to claims
that Abdulmutallab stopped talk-
ing to authorities after receiving
the warning, administration offi-
cials have contended that the sus-
pect provided useful information
before the Miranda warning and
again some weeks later during
further questioning.
Obama himself reiterated his
support for the handling of the
case, telling CBS News in a pre-
Super Bowl interview yesterday
that Abdulmutallab "clammed
up" after authorities had obtained
actionable intelligence from him.
Obama likened the Abdulmutal-
lab case to that of convicted shoe
bomber Richard Reid, whom
Obama said was read his rights
within minutes of his arrest in
December 2001.
"Under the previous admin-
istration, some of the same crit-
ics of our approach have been
employing this policy for years,"
Obama said. However, the presi-
dent added that the policy of read-
ing terror suspects their rights
should be reviewed and suggested
that the best interrogators should
be placed in teams to manne the

process to ensure authorities get
all the information they need.
Brennan said he had person-
ally briefed top GOP lawmakers
on Christmas night about Abdul-
mutallab's arrest and that none
of them raised objections. Those
officials, in response to Bren-
nan, said they were not given any
information beyond the fact of the
Brennan said, "There's been
quite a bit of an outcry after
the fact, where again, I'm just
very concerned on behalf of
counterterrorism professionals
throughout our government, that
politicians continue to make this
a political football and are using it
for whatever political or partisan
Among those briefed were
Senate Minority Leader Mitch
McConnell, R-Ky.; House Minor-
ity Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio;
and the top Republicans on the
congressional intelligence com-
mittees, Sen. Kit Bond of Mis-
souri and Rep. Pete Hoekstra of
The Republican lawmakers
contended that the nalsteh

received were short on details,
and they remained critical of the
administration's actions.
"Brennan never told me of any
plans to Mirandize the Christmas
Day bomber," Bond said in a state-
ment. "If he had, I would have
told him the administration was
making a mistake."
McConnell spokesman Don
Stewart said in a statement that
Brennan was trying to shift atten-
tion from "bad decisions" that
allowed terrorists in Yemen,
where Abdulmutallab reportedly
received al-Qaida training, to
gain a head start in the wake of
the attack.
"Rather than having highly
trained terror investigators spend
time with this. terrorist, the
administration decided to treat
him as a common criminal who
had a right to a government-fund-
ed lawyer and advised of his right
to remain silent," Stewart said.
Brennan said that Abdulmu-
tallab was treated no differently
than any other terror suspect
arrested on U.S. soil and that the
FBI and others involved in his
arrest acted appropriately.
