Obama tried to downplay and conceal intelligence from the American people and Congress on the seriousness of the North Korean situation.

But President Trump is the problem?

Got it.

Via Fox News.

Tuesday’s bombshell Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs – left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013. The Post also failed to mention that the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time.

During an April 11, 2013, House Armed Services Committee hearing, Congressman Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., inadvertently revealed several unclassified sentences from a DIA report that said DIA had determined with “moderate confidence” that North Korea has the capability to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be launched with a ballistic missile.

The Director of National Intelligence and Obama officials subsequently tried to dismiss Lamborn’s disclosure by claiming the DIA assessment was an outlier that did not reflect the views of the rest of the U.S. Intelligence Community….

Americans need to recognize as they ponder the increasingly dangerous North Korea situation that the Obama administration not only refused to do anything about this crisis but tried to downplay and conceal intelligence from the American people and Congress on how serious it was.

Trump’s ‘fury and fire’ sure beats Obama’s butt-kissing

    Less than one year after that video caused Benghazi. And just one month after Clapper told Congress the most truthful untruth that he could think of. Also less than one year after Obama said Syria redline. I’m sure Obama didn’t want any Is that a NoKo redline questions, so lie that there’s nothing to see here. Where were the Republicans? Wasn’t foreign policy warhawk McCain pushing Gang of 8 in early 2013? Amazing how Republicans focus on amnesty makes them not see anything else. Even now, after Republican President elected, they can’t repeal Ocare and they won’t let Trump build a wall or cut legal immigration. They’re even starting to push Gang of 8 2.0 Obama wanted Iran nuke deal above all and Republicans wanted amnesty. Would like to think that NoKo causes Trump to finally decertify Iran compliance with ‘deal’. The pallets of cash aren’t coming back.

    Amazing how the worthless Washington Repubs help facilitate trashing Trump and never came out with truth to the power that was the Obama Presidency with all its destruction of America and the Western way of life. They are totally pathetic!
