President Obama’s skipping his intel briefing while the world slips into chaos, but the intel community totally dropped the ball on ISIS.
That’s what he wants us to believe:
The Government Accountability Institute, previously best-known for needling members of Congress over insider-trading deals that lax laws have rendered legal, used the official White House calendar to compile a list of the days when Obama wasn’t scheduled to receive a briefing.
The resulting numbers showed that he only attended the Presidential Daily Brief 42.1 per cent of the time.
ABC News reported in 2012 that the president often prefers to receive his daily briefing in writing, and reads it on his iPad.
An Obama administration national security aide confirmed this to MailOnline on Monday.
‘It’s pretty well-known that the president hasn’t taken in-person intelligence briefings with any regularity since the early days of 2009,’ the aide said. ‘He gets them in writing.’
The resulting picture is one of a solitary chief executive consuming his intelligence briefs in a vacuum instead of engaging in two-way conversations with generals and spymasters.
This actually explains his incompetence.
He’s completely ignorant of what’s going on in the world, because he doesn’t care.
Tell me I’m wrong.
