Meanwhile it's getting freaky in Egypt and Libya.

somebody explained this morning on NPR that Obama gets his intel briefings personally... he reads them himself... as such, they rarely even have the meetings...bush was the one that started demanding meeting and having everything be read to him.

anybody who think POTUS is ignoring his intel reports at ANY time, let alone during a time of crisis is a freaking idiot.

Not necessarily true. There are times where they intentionally ignore intel reports in order to allow certain things to happen that would give them leverage.

regardless of what you're implying, that isn't ignoring. ignoring would be leaving them on the table unread. reading them and deciding what to do about them is strategy... even if that action is non-action.

when a Paris cinema showed a film in which Christ made love to a woman, the picture-house was burned-down, one cinema-goer was killed, and the killer turned out to be a Christian.

Killing is killing... don't get me wrong... but there's a tad of difference between one guy setting a theater alight, and hundreds upon hundreds of people in multiple countries, protesting, rioting, burning and, in LIbya, using said riots as cover to attack and kill innocent bureaucrats, no?

Every religion, group, class and people has their crazies and extremists... but for some reason muslim groups seem to have no limits on their reaction to something done by one or two people that offended them...

Did NPR also let you know that Bush slobbered in a cup and they also held the cup for him?

What a croc. I heard today that most briefings are printed but more in bullet statement form. If you are not at the meeting, you cannot get details. Bush demanding the meetings sounds a bit more engaged than just "send me the highlights"

It's cause we keep the bible thumpers away from the main legislative table. It's getting harder and harder though

No need for Obama to attend the meetings at all because whatever will happen, will happen?

Then why even have them?

do you actually have any idea what you're talking about? "send me the highlights?" it's absurd that we're even talking about this, that's the point.

The reports can be anything from general overviews to very detailed.

You don't think those briefing the President were actually eyewitnesses to the events do you? Those briefing the intel get their information from the same place the President would, reports.

Interpreting the information is the issue and I'm sure the President can have it any way he likes, verbally or in writing.

Most of the crap I post here comes from a joy I get in showing the absurdity and hypocrisy of liberals. They hold Bush to a certain standard that they do not hold Obama. Only reason for my post.

Just like the others with John Kerry, Harry Reid, etc saying whatever they want while troops are in harms way even to the point of saying, the war is lost, our troops are raping and killing civilians. Then, when Romney makes a brief statement, the liberals and their friends in the media go ape. " Comments stop at the waters edge" ......for repubs only. Yeah, I just bring stuff up for no reason.
