Should the President of the United States' advisors withhold information from him?


When should advisors to the President of the United States decide to "not" share information with the President. The revelations about Petraeus' affair and the facts about Benghazi were withheld for some period of time after facts were known. Why keep the facts from the President who selected you to advise him.

    I cannot imagine hiring people to advise you. Then the advisors decide what they want to tell you and when. I think he had to know or get rid of the advisors.

    I hate politics. It seems you have to be a liar to be a politician. You don't even have to be a good liar.

    Hi Kathleen! I can understand not telling the public. My concern is not telling the President.
