I see where everyone is getting all wee-weed up about Big Guy missing 60% of his daily intelligence briefings what gives? It hasnt been August for over a month now.
Anyway, it sounds like much ado about nothing, right? I mean, just because he missed the meeting that discussed the double-agent status of Anwar al-Awlaki before ordering his whacking-by-drone doesnt mean that Awlaki didnt deserve to be whacked. (Sorry about the collateral damage butt you know, you have to break a few eggs )
And besides, just because Barry skips 60% of the briefings doesnt mean that he misses anything important:
You see Mr. President, the Ambassador is under attack, security in Benghazi is very weak and the compound is being attacked by an organized mob armed with rocket launchers. Maybe we could send some backup air support to save our men, sir? Sir?
Well actually sir, we might have a teeny little issue with the Obamacare website. It isnt exactly working yet. But I dont think that will be a problem for the rollout, do you? No, me neither.
Mr. President, it looks like the Republicans have been nosing around and have uncovered our plan to squash conservative groups from raising money by harassing them and refusing to grant them 501(c9) status. Mr. President? Can you hear me under there, sir?
I know youre going to find this hard to believe Mr. President, but the Veterans Administration has, uh, left 120,000 veterans waiting for care and some of them (40 so far) died while waiting. It looks like pressures were placed on schedulers to use unofficial lists or engage in inappropriate practices to make waiting times appear more favorable. Can you hear me over that air horn? Sir?
You see Mr. President, if Iran is allowed to build a nuclear bomb we are looking at not only WWIII but very likely mutual annihilation. Can I count on you to squash its development? If not Ill have to take matters into my own hands. Got it?
Yes sir, Mr. Commander And Chief! Youve got our backs, and weve got yours.

He missed 60+% of his in person briefings so that one or more of his briefers can’t come out and say I told him such and such right to his face.
