Skip to comments.Obama's Skipped Intel Meetings Under Scrutiny
Posted on 09/15/2012 8:38:09 PM PDT by chessplayer
A simple three-page report by the Government Accountability Institute tallying up the number of days President Barack Obama has attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) on intelligence has ignited a firestorm of controversy that places the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three members of his staff in a new and critical light.
Now, with the Middle East ablaze, White House reporters on Friday once again pressed Mr. Carney on why Mr. Obama has attended less than half of his daily intelligence briefings, even as he makes time for parties with Beyonce and Jay-Z, as well as numerous fundraisers. According to ABC News, Mr. Carney did not dispute the GAI report's numbers or findings, but said it depends on what the definition of "attended" is:

I had to double check to make sure this wasn’t satire.
Don’t get too excited. The ipad excuse will be enough for the press to let him off the hook.
Depends on what OUR definition of IMPEACHMENT IS, Carnhole.....
“Obama religiously reads a written version of the same prepared material,...”
SO if we use religiously as the measurable it is pretty rare according to the press...
When the GAI report was initially reported in a Washington Post article by Marc Thiessen [on Monday 9/10], White House Press Secretary Jay Carney dismissed the report's findings as "hilarious."
The very next day, Ambassador Stevens and three American members of his staff were murdered.
Dear Leader is too busy giving interviews to the likes of “pimp with a limp”. Dear Leader is already intelligent, so why attend Intelligent briefings?

Yup. First he said they were hilarious. Now he says it depends on what the definition of ‘attended’ is.
Wish I could vote in a battleground state
I would make it look like I refused to meet with Netanyahu.
I would make it look like I was more interested in campaigning and appearances on the David Letterman show.
I would do all I could to make it appear as if the U.S. stepping in to assist Israel was the last thing the U.S. was planning to do.
Is that they plan?
0bama thinks the war on terror is over so he thinks there is no need for the briefings.
Did he ever miss a single briefing to play golf?
That kind of info in an iPAD? Now you’re talking a signals security problem!
Besides, the basic document that is given at the beginning of the morning briefing is probably no more detailed than a set of power point slides. Attending the briefing would involve getting a lot of other details, questions, and discussions. Quite frankly, I don’t think Barky gives a rat’s patoot about the briefing since his mind is already made up (or Jarrett has already made the “decisions”), besides, partying with celebrities and the homies is more important. This is getting into criminal negligence, deriliction of duty, etc.
Is this a problem....You bet!
No leadership, we have an empty chair.
OMG (O)bama (M)ust (G)o
15 days to an “October surprise”
Reggie Love sexcapades (when he was there before Jarrett kicked him out.)
Bike rides on girl bikes.
Late night show tv appearances.
Praying to his father Satan.
Praying he could sucker people into one more term. Then he’d really have the freedom to do what he wanted.
Truly God cannot remove him fast enough. One thing’s clear, he’s done as president. This country is a disaster under him.
It’s like he’s made the entire country Detroit in just 4 years.
They had to investigate. I guess they still don't know whether or not Nidal Hasan was influenced by a jihadist.
"Investigators from the Defense Criminal Investigative Service knew of email exchanges between U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, accused of fatally shooting 13 people, and notorious terrorist leader Anwar Nasser al-Awlaki, but they halted their investigation before seeking a face-to-face interview with Hassan."

I was reminded of this because the title of this thread is very similar to one dated 11/6/09: FOX NEWS: Obama's Response to Fort Hood Shooting Under Scrutiny
“October surprise”. That scares me because Obama and his lemmings are capable of anything. Romney needs to strike first, if Romney and his campaign have an October surprise.
When Obama was asked whether he wanted to attend an “intelligence meeting”, he said, “No thanks. I’m intelligent enough myself so I don’t need no stinkin’ meetings.”
The news behind the news!
Wouldn’t that make a devastating ad?
The intelligence briefing room with the CIA people and an empty chair!
The intelligence briefing room with the CIA people and an empty chair!
It would look like this:
Or you might do this...
0bama sent a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel. Taking that off of the table removes a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.
That would be one heck of an October surprise. Until you mentioned October surprise I was not thinking about it. Now I am going to be up all night thinking what it could be. I will finally get to bed but wake up cranky from too little sleep. My wife will ask me something, I'll snap back, that will be the last straw, she will divorce me and I will lose half of everything I own.
Thanks, Thanks alot!
The prez cares so deeply about our National security that he reads about it later after its reported. I feel so warm and fuzzy inside. Pathetic!
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

In related news Obama issued an executive order today declaring “attend” to mean “not attend.” SCOTUS will review the order, and already the Furies have been sent to hound Chief Justice Roberts, who claims his duty is to the dignity of the court. The legal definition of “dignity” is currently being taught in law school as “doing what the president and Congress want.”
If you get a chance, this extraordinary series of videos from an intelligence specialist on the Islamic threat gives amazing detail of what Hassan specifically briefed his colleagues on in the military—including his and the other Islamists’ straightforward reading of Islamic doctrine that described when and how he would have to act exactly as he did:
It really is astounding.
Well, you could vacation in WI. I think you only have to live here 10 days...:~(
I am quite sure this face was brought up last week, and their response was something along the lines that we have a very smart President. I suppose he is telepathic too.
Who is the pimp with a limp?
Are you kidding? He was on the golf course when bin Laden was shot.
ANYONE wanting or wishing to vote against Obummer, “Come on Down” to Wisconsin. Anyone can vote here and vote often, just ask any Demmodummie for diretions. Living here for 10 days will get you a residency and you then can have TWO states to claim and vote in.
