Barack Obama has missed over half of his intelligence briefings since winning reelection

September 30, 2014

z-islamic-caliphate-flag Last weekend Barack Obama appeared in an interview on ’60 Minutes’ and in an attempt to spread the blame around he claimed that the intelligence community underestimated the growing threat ISIS presented to the Middle East and to the world.

  This drew the ire of the intelligence community for they are claiming they were warning the president about ISIS well before the 2012 election.

  The President tried to make the same claim last month after the terrorist organization began beheading journalists when he came under fire for calling ISIS the ‘JV’ team, but the Pentagon refuted that claim by stating it knew about the threat of ISIS from the beginning. 

  So if the intelligence community did not underestimate the threat ISIS posed how is it possible Barack Obama did? Perhaps this story will provide us with a clue:

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

“It’s pretty well-known that the president hasn’t taken in-person intelligence briefings with any regularity since the early days of 2009,” an Obama national security staffer told the Daily Mail on Monday. “He gets them in writing.”

  Let us give the President the benefit of the doubt about getting the memos in writing; if he does actually get all his PDBs in writing (and he probably does) how thoroughly does he read them if he reads them at all? And even if he does read them it still would not provide him with the same sense of urgency as it would if he were sitting down in person and listening to what the intelligence community was trying to tell him.

  But this is not a new story for this is the same man who skipped a national security meeting on Ukraine when that crisis was at its peak and this is the same man who was skipping his daily briefing in the lead up to the Benghazi terrorist attack.

    I would even go a step further. The fact that he receives the briefings in writing tells me one thing. He has no interest in questioning the people who supply the reports. He already believes he is the smartest man in the room and he sees no reason why he should be asking questions, since he can divine all the information he needs from the written reports.

    This means we have a totally failed presidency. Domestic and foreign policy alike.

      I meant to mention the fact that he is not interested in questioning those who supply these briefings but I forgot. Sometimes I have so many thoughts running through my head as I am writing I don’t get to them all so thanks for pointing this out!

    He just doesn’t care enough about this country to go to the briefings. If he had a job outside of this Administration, he would not be there long. What kind of a job lets you show up “when you want to”? Bottom line is that there is a criteria to follow, so it really doesn’t matter what is actually going on, because he has orders to put thru. I doubt we are going to get thru 2 more years of this man (term used lightly)!
    Steve, I think that “benefit of the doubt” has run its’ course and is not a valid excuse anymore. I am out of any kind of excused from the left that might account for what he is or has been doing. There just is none.
    Larry, I agree this is a failed presidency!

      If we look at thru the eyes of those who placed him in that position, ‘he’s successful’ and will continue to be there to do their bidding as long as they want him to be.
      Here’s something that might shine a bit more light. We’ve been raised to think either positive or negative regarding certain groups of people (each group has their culture & beliefs). Christianity has been pro Jewish, thinking it in line with God’s Word. But Jesus himself, while on the earth, called out the Pharisees and Sadducees as being vipers, evil, murderers and hypocrites – they where the political/religious leaders of the day who profit in their ‘man-made religion’ [not recognizing Jesus as the Son of God – who was Prophesied about in the very books they read from!]. The importance of this reality exist today as well. There are good people (not perfect!) & bad people, some pro Christ others anti. If the rulers today are similar to ones Jesus spoke about, then we do well to see them for who they are and their agenda & intentions. The host in this vid is theatric! but presents some insights you might want to consider. When Jesus stated the facts about who those ‘individuals were’, he didn’t mix words – He knew what they were thinking {John 8:44}. We have these same people today in our Gov. … or use to be ‘ours.’

        Will look at the video in a bit and report back, I still have “chores” and have dinner going, haha! I am afraid what this guy is going to have to say, but what a beautiful backdrop he has to say it! Later, Zip!

        Zip, he does keep you glued to the video, that is for sure. Of course when he raises his eyebrows and the pill box goes up, i have a hard time taking him seriously! A Russian Orthodox Christian, used to be Jewish, well, guess he has a following. Not saying what he says is right or wrong, but gives you words to ponder with a little laugh on the side! Kind of the “Andrew Klavan” of his religion, keeps you interested as Klavan does, but also has a serious message with it.

        Yes, he’s a bit ‘scary’ looking! The info he shares seems quite relevant. Background is Frisco, CO. An old town from the 1880’s mining boom, now tourist centered – skiing, fishing, camping, etc. Probably has some old bars there that have some stories!

        It is an interesting video and I agree that America is being run from above. However I do not think it is the Jews, I think it is the corporatists, the special interests, and the globalists. Obama is a puppet, and so are all the others, to those whom are really pulling the strings.

        Yep Steve. It doesn’t matter the nationalities behind it because it involves many, even though the key individuals are few. They have large sums of money and power and the obsession for MORE insatiable!

      Yeah Lou, it is hard to give him the benefit of the doubt anymore! I think you are right about this not being of interest to him, he has an agenda to forward and this runs against it so he does not care about it.
