    James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence didn't know that 12 men were arrested in the UK for planning a series of massive terrorist attacks this week. Diane Sawyer asked him two days ago if he knew about it and all she got was a blank stare from the former lieutenant general.

    This gives Military Intelligence a new meaning. Well actually it just reinforces the old adage that military and intelligence are conflicting terms.

    I mean, where the heck has this guy been.

    Btw.....this imbecile also supported Bush's claim that WMDs were in Iraq.

    This is the type of people Obama has placed the security of this country in. I would expect this of a teenager but not the man directing our intelligence agencies as we speak.

    Clapper didn't know

    It makes one think about the process we have. We accumulate a lot of intelligence and the top layer of officials only see what the lower layers decide what is important or not and what to pass on. In this case it shows that this man does not even watch the news and he may not have gotten notified by his people of the incident. Maybe it is classified SECRET and he couldn't say anything. Whatever it was it shows that the people in charge of our intelligence are are uninformed!!!

    What it means is that idiot isn't qualified for the job nor is he engaged in the process.

    He's the guy that briefs Obama every morning for Christ sake.:lol:

    The suspects, aged between 17 and 28, are accused of preparing Al Qaeda-inspired attacks on ‘mass casualty’ targets such as shopping malls and nightclubs.
    They were taken into custody after more than 150 officers from four forces swooped on homes in London, Stoke-on-Trent, Birmingham and Cardiff at 5am.

    So Scotland Yard should report to the CIA?:piss2:

    Our intelligence chief shouldn't at least KNOW about this? Forget the CIA, Clapper isn't part of it. The Obama menstruation admits this is a major gaffe, the guy "should have been briefed." Why don't you?

    A blank stare could mean anything. It could mean that wasn't about to talk about it.
    You can't go crazy on a "guess". That's what got us into Iraq.
    Maybe it's a trait of all right wingers.

    Stupid fuck... Both Clapper AND the Obama menstruation ADMIT Clapper knew nothing about the arrests! And they ADMIT he should have at the very least KNOWN about it!

    And Clapper IS one of the people who not only did the "guessing" on Iraq, but also tried to JUSTIFY it later!:lol:

    Catch a clue yet?

    No.....they report directly to Reuters and the AP first. That way our intelligence folks, Obama's intelligence folks, won't get wind of it.

    Does anybody wonder why Obama seems out of touch with reality?????

    A blank stare means that you don't know.

    How hard is that to figure out rdean?

    If the guy has a problem working out simple sentences, even bull shit responses to a question you don't want to answer, how is this guy qualified to be our number one guy running an important part of our government vested with the defense of this nation.

    Obviously he's not involved.

    Who is at fault????

    The Obama Administration.


    What it illustrates is national defense is a joke to these people. They feel that the Tea Party is a greater threat then folks that want to blow up train stations, passenger aircraft, and shopping malls.

    You cannot whitewash this in any sane manner.
