On CBS’ 60 Minutes, Obama said that “they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.” What they ‘underestimated’ was the threat of the Islamic State.
In an interview with Fox & Friends, Donald Trump said that it is ‘inconceivable’ that he didn’t know the threat of ISIS. He backed his claim up by referring to the amount of people who report to Obama.
This underestimation of the threat of the Islamic State is due in part to his lack of attendance of intelligence briefings. How many times have we been told that he doesn’t read the reports? It’s no wonder he underestimated their threat.
In true fashion, he isn’t taking responsibility for this failure either. It’s back to the blame game! But look at it this way, at least he didn’t blame it on Bush. This time it was the intelligence community via Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
