I tried to access the video on this page, but can't.
Hopefully someone can YouTube the part where Under Secretary Patrick F Kennedy says this about not revoking the Underwear Bomber's visa (the individual):

“We will use revocation authority prior to interagency in circumstances where we believe there is an immediate threat.Revocation is an important tool in our border security arsenal. At the same time, expeditious coordination with our national security partners is not to be underestimated. There have been numerous cases where our unilateral and uncoordinated revocation would have disrupted important investigations that were underway by one of our national security partners. THEY HAD THE INDIVIDUAL UNDER INVESTIGATION AND OUR REVOCATION ACTION  would have disclosed the US government’s interest in the individual and ended our colleague’s ability to quietly persue the case and identify terrorist’s plans and co-conspirators.”
