    Obama has had accurate intelligence about ISIS since BEFORE the 2012 election Read m

    Obama has had accurate intelligence about ISIS since BEFORE the 2012 election, says administration insider | Daily Mail Online

    A national security staffer in the Obama administration said the president has been seeing 'highly accurate predictions' about the rise of the ISIS terror army since 'before the 2012 election'
    Obama insisted in his campaign speeches that year that America was safe and al-Qaeda was 'on the run'
    The president said during Sunday's '60 Minutes' program that his Director of National Intelligence had conceded he underestimated ISIS
    But the administration aide insisted that Obama's advisers gave him actionable information that sat and gathered dust for more than a year
    'He knew what was at stake,' the aide said of the president, and 'he knew where all the moving pieces were'
    Obama takes daily intelligence briefings in writing, he explained, because no one will be able to testify about warning the president in person about threats that the White House doesn't act on


    Hmmm, this is interesting. This guy isn't even going through the motions.

    Interesting. But there is a fine line between "had intelligence reports" and "have evidence to take to Congress." In 2012, it would have been hard sell especially with the election coming up.

    What bothers me the most about this is yet again we have an indication that our government is lying to us in an effort to continue a very confusing and hypocritical foreign policy.

    Its Bush's fault. No wait, its Clapper's fault...

    President Barack Obama was facing a fierce political backlash on Monday night after he blamed US intelligence chiefs for being caught by surprise by the sudden rise of the Islamic State (Isil) terror movement in Iraq and Syria.

    In a highly unusual step, Mr Obama singled out James Clapper, his director of national intelligence, when asked by a television interviewer whether he had underestimated the threat posed by Isil after its fighters burst across the Syrian border into Iraq this summer, capturing large swathes of territory.

    I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria, Mr Obama told CBS News.

    And George Bush had ample warnings about Al Qaeda before 9/11 that all went ignored.

    How George W. Bush was given SEVEN warnings about threat from Bin Laden in months before 9/11

    ... which, of course, is immaterial. Unless, of course, we want to point out how incredibly stupid it would be to make the same mistake your predecessor made.

    Well sure, but the claim is that he put politics ahead of dealing with ISIS so it is no defense in claiming that he couldn't do anything with an election coming up. That is just agreeing.

    The other part of this is that if this is true, that he had accurate intelligence for years, then the president just lied on 60 minutes.

    Two things: 1) the knee-jerk attempts by the left to deflect any incompetence from this administration by pointing out the (supposed) incompetence of its predecessor is beyond moronic, is no real defense at all of Obama, and was a tired strategy 5 years ago. 2) Given your 20/20 hindsight of the matter, what should Bush have done with those warnings? Declare martial law?

    And finally, what we have here with Obama is his getting the assessments of ISIS and now lying about it. Try to deal with the topic of the thread rather than derail it and slam Bush. Bush is out of office. He has been for six years. Obama is president and the thread is about Obama. If you cant follow along, start your own Bush-bashing thread and stay out of this one. Thanks

    And yet no indication they were going to use planes as missiles, the things going on with Isis have happened right out in the open for all to see.
