So, you believe every lie that the New York Times spreads?  You must be a gullible sheeple.

Re: Trumps failure as Commander in Chief

 

Well, as it turns out the president was never briefed. Why? Well, as CBS News’ Catherine Herridge, formerly of Fox News, pointed out, “An intelligence official with direct knowledge tells CBS News there was an intel collection report and "NSA assesses Report does not match well established and verifiable Taliban and Haqqani practices" + "lack sufficient reporting to corroborate any links.”

Oh, it gets better. She added, “The official said the intelligence collection report reached ‘low levels’ NSC but did not go further, not briefed POTUS, or VP because it was deemed ‘uncorroborated’ and ‘dissent intelligence community.’"

As Leah noted, Trump rightfully slapped down this story as another shoddy hit job. Beth noted The New York Times’s so-called anonymous sources offered no details about this alleged operation between this Russian intelligence unit and the Taliban. Oh, and you know skepticism should be a default position on a story like this when everyone agrees that it’s ridiculous. All the parties involved in this disaster of a story says none of it is true and this is what happens when some low-level clown in the intelligence community thinks they have something and don’t, which is then turned into a firestorm because out anti-Trump opposition press is too stupid to know that classified information can also be totally wrong. They’re not mutually exclusive. Liberal reporter Michael Tracey, a die-hard Trump-Russia collusion skeptic, also trashed the story, while noting that this was probably done to blunt our departure from the country after being there for 19 years.

Re: Trumps failure as Commander in Chief

It does seem quite possible that Dennison did not see it- even though they've been forced to dumb the intel briefings down to single sentence bullet points, he often doesn't read them.

In a functional administration he would have still received the info verbally, including an assessment regarding the consensus on confidence level on the intel. But he may not have time and anyone who will tell him anything he doesn't want to hear is long gone.

And he was busy that day- had your gals Diamond and Silk on the calendar.

Morning John!!!!

You are absolutely correct in your observations.   Trump, and his cult, have been extremely detrimental to this country.  Trump doesn’t care what he’s briefed on - he knows better than anyone.   Why is this man still in office?

Not that reason is exactly the coin of the realm here, but an eminently reasonable observation.

Ergo, somethin' ain't quite right here.
