In an apparent reference to Trump's comments, on Monday night, President Obama shared his own views on intelligence briefings during an interview with Trevor Noah of Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show.'on intelligence briefings: Without them 'you're flying blind'
Obama said, "It doesn't matter how smart you are. You have to have the best information possible to make the best decisions possible."
He continued, "And my experience with our intelligence agencies is that they are not perfect. They would be the first to acknowledge that."
Obama added, "But they are full of extraordinarily hard-working, patriotic and knowledgeable experts, and if you are not getting their perspective, their detailed perspective, then you are flying blind."
Witchy has her say :
Why are conservatism and blind stupidity a common denominator?????
ISIS began in 2004 when Al Qaeda entered the Iraq war....4 years before Obama was elected. People are entitled to their opinion but get your facts straight. We've been in Iraq now over 13 years...more than twice as long as it took us to win WW II. Bush had no postwar reconstruction plan for Iraq...and now the country is under Iranian influence. ISIS is the blow back from Bush's blunder dismantling the Iraqi army and the Baathe party. The so-called surge was simply meant to buy time for Bush to leave .
Is this too many facts for republicans to digest, they can do one every six months... period ? In between time, they'll kneel before their hero, satisfy his needs while he pats them on the head. Good job destroying the country. Better learn Russian and soon.
