#1 We've recently learned of President Trump's interest and dedication to the CIA Daily Brief. Contrast that with Soetoro's reported lack of attention to the CIA brief.

Perhaps Soetoro required no personal analysis. If he was simply TOLD what to say or do, the CIA Daily would have been little more than a needless golf distraction.

One of the most difficult and challenging aspects of clandestine intelligence source operations is the building of the 'legend' i.e., the construction of a background or biography, usually supported by documents, places, and events.

Just say'n.

#2 He may not have been interested in the 'institutional' part of intelligence community. Apparently he and his people were interested in another part.

Ha! So it would appear, and he's still attempting to stay active in politics.

Prior to reading this piece, I had honestly never considered the Codevilla theory. The more I ponder it however, the more believable it becomes.

Yes, but with the revelation that he chose not to act to prevent the Russian interference that Democrats have been shrieking cost Hillary the election, how much longer will he find eager audiences?

#6 Mighty nice of them to finally come out with details of this traitorous bastards's background, or at least make the half- assed pro forma attempt of parts of it. How fucking convenient.

#7 The Klingons are responsible for letting that sh!t run for President in the first place. All his Family"" were communist revolutionaries.
