If you are wondering why those daily intelligence briefings are important even for a “very smart guy” like Trump. Read this article from Vice News in March of 2015.
It is a bit dated but sometimes things come to light while nobody is looking. It is the actual intelligence analysis that President Bush, et al, used to justify our invasion of Iraq and murder of over 250,000 people. Read it. (I’ll wait)
Did you see it? Did you see that the intelligence agency that took the brunt of the blame for Bush’s mad attempt to finally get his father’s approval wasn’t wrong? If Bush had read the assessment, we would have never went into Iraq. At least, not under that pretense. No WMDs. No link to al Qaeda. Nada.
But he, like the incoming President, has the attention span of a goldfish with ADD. Too busy. I’m too smart. Tell me later.
250,000 souls wiped off the planet because George W. Bush was too busy and too intellectually lazy to do the job he was being paid to do.
And now Trump. Oy.
