“A White House source” used an interesting choice of words to describe “a mistake” by Lewis to suggest that a file on the knicker-bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, had been passed to the US sometime “in 2008“. However Lewis has just had to retract his words and stated there was no suggestion that this had ever happened.
