Donald Trump states he does not trust information coming out of U.S. intelligence agencies, just hours before he is supposed to receive his first intelligence briefing and indicated he would cease relying on the bulk of the intelligence community’s massive workforce.
“Not so much from the people that have been doing it for our country,” Trump responded. “I mean, look what’s happened over the last 10 years. … It’s been catastrophic.
“Very easy to use them, but I won’t use them, because they’ve made such bad decisions,” he said, pointing to apparent intelligence failures ahead of the United States’s 2003 invasion of Iraq. At the time, George W. Bush administration officials appeared convinced that Saddam Hussein’s government was creating weapons of mass destruction, though that was not the case.
“If we would have never touched it, it would have been a lot better,” Trump said.
Some pundits say he may not have a choice, but they what they don’t know won’t hurt them because they don’t control the narrative as much as they think they do. CIA Director John Brennan has already suggested he would resign rather than comply with Trump’s orders to employ harsh interrogation methods or torture against America’s enemies, and it’s unclear whether others would join him. This seems a bit remiss considering John Brennan is one who needs to go as well from the list of public servants who haven’t got the backbone to fulfill their Oath of office. John Brennan should be fired and face prosecution for his ineptitude if it can be determined that he committed treasonous activities, or other misdeeds during his time in office.
Leave it to Donald Trump to already have his own International Intelligence agency in place before he enters office. It will be up and running the minute he takes over the reins. What few people realize is that that his “A” Team already has the best Intelligence organization available to him at his fingertips, one that has been known to rival even the CIA. Trump’s “A Team” is headed by none other than retired U.S. Army Major General Paul Vallely, who is also an ardent Trump supporter.
Vallely was the Deputy Commander of Pacific Operations under the Reagan administration and his specialty was Army intelligence.
While he may have been retired for over 20 years, he has maintained his International intelligence connections and and has had the CIA come to him for information. Vallely himself is the only American citizen who has set foot on Syrian soil since the civil war there began to unfold. The CIA hasn’t been able to do that themselves because none of them have the cojones or the intelligence and common sense to be able to get in and out alive.
