#1 This is all part of the left's training program for the rest of us. "We spit on you, you kiss our feet."

#2 ^ True.

#3 Geo Bush the lesser, Jimmy Carter, Slick Willie, Soetoro, Clapper, Brennan.... all clueless. Knew nothing of the al-Baghdadi strike either.

Tens, possibly hundreds of millions left totally in the dark, to include al Baghdadi !

#4 Trump didn't tell me either - the nerve of that guy!

#5 Yeah, me too. There I was sleeping peacefully in my own home in bed while some certified American bad asses were turning Beg-deady into confetti. Didn't some English guy say something about that?

#6 Trump: "We're gonna blow Baghdadi into tiny pieces so our dog doesn't have trouble swallowing!"

Carter: "Can't we just shoot him in the shoulder?"

#8 And Oblowme shouldn't be told anything, anyway! I think the Bathhouse would look good in orange.

#10  Didn't some English guy say something about that?

Rough men performing acts of toxic masculinity to keep our sorry asses safe. Yeah, I'm paraphrasing.

As for
Carter: "Can't we just shoot him in the shoulder?"

If you don't find that both hilarious and sad, go read "Guests of the Ayatollah" about the ill-fated Iran hostage rescue. That was actually Jimmy's attitude. Worst President Ever.

#11 2nd Worst President Ever.

#12 Trump probably thought Obama had nothing to offer.

Obama and the Dems have hammered Trump without let up since before he was elected. The Dems would likely break security protocols and leak the mission to try to make Trump look bad so...&%$#-off Dems.

#13 SteveS, I haven't read that book yet, but my recollection is that Cyrus Vance, Carter's Secretary of State, actually did put that question to Charging Charlie Beckwith, the founder of Delta Force. I've never seen Beckwith's response in print, but one can imagine. I'm may be off on that.

#14 Like Obama didn't extend Trump the "Common Courtesy" of telling him that the Democratic Deep State was running an operation to frame him?

#15 Obama? How many divisions does he have?

#16 A Dem President can inform Repblicans on this sort of issue with 100% assurance the info won't be leaked. That does not go both ways and they know it, they just don't like it in practice.

#17 Trump didn't inform al Baghdadi either.

What a prick!

#18 Legally, Obama is just another citizen now, just like you and I. Other than he has Secret Service protection, a generous pension, free healthcare and many other benefits.

#19 Why would you tell a predecessor? I don't think that's a thing.

#20 Why on earth would any rational human, POTUS or otherwise, entrust his most important secrets with people who have been screaming nonstop for nearly 3 years that said individual is a despicable traitor?

Does this make any f---ing sense?

Why do these people keep insulting our intelligence?

#21 Obama Successfully Hunted Trump Campaign Aides Instead of Terrorists

#22 That would of given Obama time to get ahold of his Muslim brother, and tell him to amscray.

You didn't have the common courtesy to speak the truth.
