Obama is a “Sophisticated Consumer of Intelligence”
This is regarding President Obama not attending intelligence briefings – the National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said:
“The President is among the most sophisticated consumers of intelligence on the planet. He receives and reads his [Presidential Daily Brief] every day, and most days when he’s at the White House receives a briefing in person.”
Translation: Obama is so smart and so sophisticated that he does not need a briefer. He does not need an expert to walk him through the intelligence, answer his questions or dive deeper into the findings presented. Reading the PDB briefing every day, his people argue, is just as good as meeting in person every day with his intelligence officials to discuss issues. This is, quite simply, preposterous.
I agree. Can you get more information about something by talking with someone or reading something?
I deal with my clients at my business and sometimes a phone call or email doesn’t even do it. With what Obama does here, it’s not even a phone call or email. It’s one-way only and not interactive at all. And, oh yeah, we’re talking about out nation’s security. This is the urgency and care he puts into it. We just found this out.
We don’t need a consumer. We need a leader!
