Remember SMART DIPLOMACY?
It sits besides that doctor you could keep, the $2,500 drop in premiums, and a racial healing in the pile of B.S. that turned out to be the opposite of what Barack Obama said they would be.
Mike Flynn, retired head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and former assistant director of national intelligence under President Obama, told Der Spiegel why the Islamic State rose on Obama's watch,
From Flynn via Der Spiegel:
There were all kinds of strategic and tactical warnings and lots of reporting. And even the guys in the Islamic State said that they were going to attack overseas. I just don't think people took them seriously. When I first heard about the recent attacks in Paris, I was like, "Oh, my God, these guys are at it again, and we're not paying attention." The change that I think we need to be more aware of is that, in Europe, there is a leadership structure. And there's likely a leader or a leadership structure in each country in Europe. The same is probably similar for the United States, but just not obvious yet.To be fair, President George Walker Bush made similar mistakes.
Barack Obama was too dumb to learn from them.
