DNI James Clapper finally admits he wasn’t briefed

A couple of days ago Director of National Intelligence didn’t know about the foiled terror plot just across the ocean even though it was running non-stop on the news. When Diane Sawyer asked him about it, he had nothing but a blank stare. Afterward they released a statement saying the question was to ambiguous, but now they have changed their story again. Now he wasn’t briefed!

Has this administration ever really made us feel safe?

        Exactly. Libertarians, constitutionalists, “end the fed ers”, etc.

      Homeland security was to protect us from the homeland, not for “supposed” foreign terrorists.

      • yea, I just love how power hungry government name their programs….

        death camps can be called “Happy Lotsa Free-Time Weight Loss Camps”, Fun-Time Really Warm Water Showers available if you check yourself in now!!!

    • Am I the only one still creeped out by the phrase “homeland?” It sounds eerily similar to “motherland.” I remember the criticism when the DHS was first announced, but never seem to hear it anymore.

      Come, now! For the homeland! *shudder*

  • Absolutely piss-poor. Snapper is supposed to be the Director of National Intelligence, the position formerly held by the DCI (Director, Central Intelligence). He’s supposed to be on top of all major operations and findings, both domestically and abroad. Instead, Snapper’s just shown the world that he is yet another link in the chain of mediocrity that Obama seems to specialize in finding. Obama has the most mediocre-to-outright incompetent and unqualified cabinet that we’ve probably seen in modern history. A treasury secretary that’s a tax cheat; a secretary of state that’s nothing more than a failed lawyer with no real courtroom experience and certainly no diplomatic education; a CIA director with no intelligence experience; a vice president with no real experience in anything at all, aside from politics; a homeland security secretary that’s nothing more than a fat, failed governor with no knowledge of counter-terrorism, law enforcement, disaster relief, etc. And now we have Snapper. I don’t work for the DHS, and yet I knew about this incident, how many people were arrested, where it happened, agencies involved, etc. Absolutely pathetic. I hope the next president fires every single last person that Obama’s ever so much as said “good morning” to, because if he likes you, that means you suck.

    Just one more example of the “amateur hour” in DC, why should anyone be surprised by this?

    How can ANYBODY be surprised at this? The lunatic-left d-crat socialists are committed to DESTROYING AMERICA, not protecting it.
