What should a president do….one like Fearless Fosdick……when he does not like the info that is given to him by his intel agencies?
Well if you are a moron and we have such a creature at the helm of government then you start your own intel agency….a private one that reports to the president only and skews the info to his world view…..
About now a well read visitor is asking what he Hell I am talking about…..szo let me enlighten the masses……
The Trump administration is considering a set of proposals developed by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a retired CIA officer — with assistance from Oliver North, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal — to provide CIA Director Mike Pompeo and the White House with a global, private spy network that would circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies, according to several current and former U.S. intelligence officials and others familiar with the proposals. The sources say the plans have been pitched to the White House as a means of countering “deep state” enemies in the intelligence community seeking to undermine Donald Trump’s presidency.
The creation of such a program raises the possibility that the effort would be used to create an intelligence apparatus to justify the Trump administration’s political agenda.
“Pompeo can’t trust the CIA bureaucracy, so we need to create this thing that reports just directly to him,” said a former senior U.S. intelligence official with firsthand knowledge of the proposals, in describing White House discussions. “It is a direct-action arm, totally off the books,” this person said, meaning the intelligence collected would not be shared with the rest of the CIA or the larger intelligence community. “The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly.”
Prince the founder of the mercenaries some call Blackwater….basically a thug employing thugs to go around the world killing and maiming…..
Prince is a butt buddy to Trump and will do whatever he takes to do whatever Trump wants him to do or say…..
A few other thoughts about this circumvention of law…..
Is there something wrong with the intel agencies we have now that we need another that answers only to one person and not the rule of law?
But we have a president that thinks the rule of law does not apply to him anyway.
