1. The commander in chief not knowing there is a specific protocol for sharing classified information, even with allies, to ensure all the relevant implications are fully considered?
2. The commander in chief knowing that there is such a protocol, and ignoring it to share information with Russia, even after 17 of his own intelligence agencies agreed the Russian government conspired to interfere with the presidential election?
You tell me.
Fighting terrorism together. It's a b**ch but someone's got to step up to the plate and do it.
I think what irritates me the most is the constant negativity. Without bothering to give the guy a chance. We went through the same thing with Obama during his first years. I suppose the fact that Obama failed miserably makes them assume Trump will also.
Sure, and when the US, Russia, China and N. Korea are all singing songs round a campfire, I'll be the first to celebrate.
Until then, operational security is important. Potentially putting intelligence sources at risk by sharing classified information without consulting with the people who gathered that intelligence, is idiotic, egotistical and dangerous.
I thought that with the Clinton fiasco we had decided, as a country, that classified information was to be treated no different than any other information?
Those who still compare President Obama and Trump scare the bejeezes out of me. It was one thing to excuse the fact that you put this guy in office, but to continue to defend him is beyond excuse.
Obama was a gentleman, I'll give him that. Trump isn't . That's a fact. But Obama was a Commander in Chief and so is Trump now. Those who refuse to give him half a chance scare the bejeezes out of me. Such negativity I haven't seen since Obama took office. It was as distasteful then as it is now.
It is the unbreakable "Group Think " of the left that will never allow them to even ever recognize true progress , was AHC act working ? No , Is Trump trying to change it , yes , Funny , no one that was in this meeting between Russia and Trump say anything was disclosed but The Washington Post has "inside sources "..............Yea , right .
The Democrats ,the Hilary sore losers , the DNC , the biased media, the old republican establishment all want Trump to fail , ...........Watch him kick butt and take names !
I don't foresee him kicking butt and taking names but I am willing to give him a chance.
He's fighting quite a battle alone , The right , the left , the media bias , Its a wonder he's progressing forward at all . i was listening to Brietbart Radio - David Webb today and they were discussing how many countries are closely watching America's present political reality , THEY see Trump's war for what it is , An "outsider " fighting the rolling tides of deciet , ingrained corruption , bias and hatred .
You are very quick to doubt the motives and credibility of everyone else in the world - why, then, do you place your trust unquestioningly in Breitbart? Don't they deserve the same approach as everyone else? What convinced you that they are genuine and no one else is?

Because , unlike many ,many people here , although especially those of politically selfish younger generations , I know what media integrity is , I know what the recognition of honesty is , i fully appreciate media accuracy . All of this Once the pride of the american mainstream news media .
Sad part is , It wasn't that long ago !
But, you have to admit that your preferred news source leans heavily right.
Of course ,Fox for one is right they are however playing the Establishment Right's game against Trump though , tell me something which of the other TV news sources are even center -right ?
CNN.............Left -Left Center ?
MSNBC........Way way left
Democracy Now .....otu in space Left
Right now they are all playing the anti Trump for the establishment Congress and Senate
So where is the balance ? - and I also hear both - American voters are Center left and Center neutral ...?
So what makes you think Breitbart is the exception? Can you explain please? References?
Brietbart Radio , is but one of my media sources on sirius radio , a station of two or three hour programs by various people with varying backgrounds of news stations --widely separated from the mainstream media -- who break down current and past political activity using fact , political and media records. Yes , like all media , they have an agenda . Brietbart actually holds all politicians "feet to the fire " right or left and I definitely like that .
Rather than listening to one flavor pf media opines , one agenda , I vote for the variety of broadcasters and opinions . That's why I am such a well rounded opinionist ..........:-]

Should President Obama have fired General McChrystal? Should we revise our approach in Afghanistan? How much longer can we allow this seemingly endless war go on? Is their a bright side to what we are doing?
