Obama Briefed on National Security

President-elect Obama began a series of top secret intelligence briefings in Chicago today. The FBI and 21 other intel agencies will be regularly briefing Obama on the daily state of the world over the next 70+ days. President Bush will personally talk with the President-elect on Monday to discuss Iraq, the world financial crisis, and the current state of the nation.

In addition to receiving the regular “President’s Daily Brief,” or PDB, which consists of analytical summaries of best available intelligence on vital national security matters over the previous 24-hours, intelligence sources said Obama’s briefing also included the latest analysis on the reconstitution of Al Qaeda and the terrorist organisation’s presence in Pakistan and Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan, the state of the terrorist/insurgency in Iraq and Pakistan, Al-Qaeda’s efforts to acquire nuclear and, especially, biological weapons, Iran and North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile developments; and the increasing threat posed to the United States by Mexico’s warring narco-terrorist cartels, which have ties to Colombia’s FARC and Islamist terrorist organizations with long-established operational infrastructure throughout Central and South America.

Given the public state of the world then briefed on the secret state of the world, Barack Obama may be the first President-elect to demand a recount.

Lol...I still wonder if Biden's weird comment about Obama being tested, is related to both presidential teams receiving some briefings, around the time Biden made the comments.

It's easy to criticize presidential decisions when you're living on the outside.

Obama may not handle things the way I want; but if he has any sense of responsibility, he will disappoint the anti-war base.
