I have been teaching a course on terrorism and national security and all my research shows me that there is a minor problem brewing at this time….but without a handle on it it could become a major gap in our national security safety net.
I know there are some out there that are bad mouthing the intel people some even think they are in the middle of a subtle coup….on this I cannot agree. These analysts are professionals and do not inject politics into their analyses (contrary to popular belief)…..lots of talk about “alternate facts” those are facts that does not massage the genitals of Trump so the threat is not real….a dangerous mindset.
I have been reading some analysis about the situation with the world and the White House……
Intelligence experts are warning that Pres. Donald Trump and his administration’s refusal to acknowledge truths that don’t align with their worldview could have serious geopolitical consequences — a situation that is made even more complicated by the “fundamental ignorance and inexperience of Trump’s inner circle.”
The Intercept spoke with current and former intelligence officials who said that the Trump administration’s habit of disregarding information that doesn’t match up with its ideology and political agenda are deeply reminiscent of the politicization of intelligence that led to the invasion of Iraq under Pres. George W. Bush.
I know that there will be push back from his worshipers….but his immature temper tantrums is not the way to handle a crisis in the making……taking to Twitter to insult someone gives me NO confidence in his ability to digest intel and make the right decision.
