CNN's Terrorism Expert AWOL During Mumbai Attacks

Ex-White House Homeland Security Adviser Frances Townsend joined CNN in May. One might expect a terrorism expert to weigh in during the three day attack in Mumbai, India. But Fran was quiet. Why?

Not long ago, a reporter from The Scotsman reported Frances advised the Obama campaign. The author spelled her middle/maiden name wrong, so he lost credibility points. But shortly thereafter, CQPolitics had Mrs. Townsend offering her services to an Obama administration. It wasn't quite "Barack, call me!", but it was close.

Is Frances Fragos Townsend hard at work advising the President elect? Will she be named this week, along with Hillary Clinton and General James L. Jones? Stay tuned...
