National Intelligence Director James Clapper found clueless on UK terror arrests in an interview with Diane Sawyer - It is an embarrassment and extremely disturbing that this is the team protecting our well being.
Although the White House attempted to spin this fact as a positive that Clapper doesn't spend his day watching the news on T.V., the fact remains that he should be aware of a little development such as this. White House rationale as expressed by counterterrorism advisor John Brennan,
"Should he have been briefed by his staff on those arrests? Yes. And I know there was breathless attention by the media about these arrests, and it was constantly on the news networks. I‘m glad that Jim Clapper is not sitting in front of the TV 24 hours a day and monitoring what’s coming out of the media. What he is doing is focusing on those intelligence issues that the president expects him to focus on and to make sure that we don’t have conflict in different parts of the world."
Just one more sign that the Obama administration has little clue in the area of protecting the United States. Below is the clip from the Sawyer interview. Clueless is the best description.
