Is this the same paranoid 'town-crier' excitedly running around Washington, shouting...'The Russians are coming, The Russians are coming?'
Who could forget this embarrassing interview a few years into the current Administration, when OBAMA'S Director of National Intelligence had a 'brain freeze' during a nationally broadcast television interview, appearing totally unaware of a major intel operation?
(shortened for presentation here)
The other day, this is the same guy who appeared before Congress and declared, unequivocally and without doubt, that Vladimir Putin personally led the charge in 'hacking' the U-S Presidential election in favor of Donald Trump.
And now, some of the same media (ABC News) who revealed the incompetence of this 'intelligence genius,' are puzzled when President-elect Trump downplays Russia's role in the election after a briefing with THESE SAME top US intelligence Kops.
Current CIA Director John Brennan is quoted as saying; "Our highest priority is – and always will be – the safety and security of the American people." Indeed, we are indebted to the men and women who dedicate their lives to keeping this nation safe and secure. Both Brennan and Clapper are among those who serve with professionalism and passion, but they also must accept criticism from the American people when there is the slightest appearance that our intelligence community is being used as a tool to advance the favorability of one political party over another. This may not have been the intention, when releasing their findings on alleged Russian cyber attacks being employed during our Presidential election. Some probably would say, their timing stinks. It was that great philosopher Yogi Berra who once remarked, "You don't have to swing hard to hit a home run. If you got the timing, it'll go." By releasing their report, and subsequently casting a cloud of doubt over the election outcome, Brennan and Clapper came to the plate and delivered a two out, ninth inning infield pop-up, ending Barack Obama's eight year game of losing for the American people.
