Watch this clip between Jake Tapper and former head of the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) Lt. General Michael Flynn.
Among other things, here are a couple pertinent items from this interview:
Tapper: “Do you think we’ll have a Paris-style attack in the United States and what more should the US Government be doing to prevent them?”
Flynn: “Yeah. I think that, first, our FBI is probably, well, they are the best law enforcement organization in the world. Bar none. And the FBI, I know, is working overtime today to prevent this kind of an attack. Paris was eight guys. The attack in Mali at the hotel was ten guys. So, two guys, three guys, four guys, could have, could raise absolute havoc in a mall or somewhere else–“
Tapper: “Do you think it’s just a matter of time?”
Flynn: “I do. I really do believe it’s a matter of time. I believe that there’s going to be … where our luck is going to run out and they’re going to be able to achieve something along the lines of what we saw in Paris.”
Jake Tapper: In 2012, your agency put out a now declassified report that seems to have predicted the rise of ISIS to power. You said, The deteriorating security situation in Iraq and Syria could lead to the declaration of a, quote, ‘Islamic State, through its union with other organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory.’ It was not long after you issued that report that President Obama referred to ISIS as the ‘jayvee team. Do you feel as though your warnings were ignored?”
Flynn: “You know. I think that they did not meet a particular narrative that the White House needed, and I’ll be very candid with you, I have said, and I believe that the people who were around the president, his sort of inner circle that were advising him, I think advised him incorrectly.”
Tapper: “What was the narrative…”
Flynn ”I think the narrative was that Al Qaeda was on the run and bin Laden was dead —”
Tapper: “The election narrative?”
Flynn: “Yeah. And they were dead and these guys are, you know, we’d beaten them.” [Emphasis Dianny’s]
Keep this in mind.
This interview took place on CNN one day before the terror attack in San Bernardino.
What Lt. General Flynn feared transpired exactly as he feared it would.
It appears that Obama’s intelligence officials saw this coming, just as they saw the rise of ISIS coming. And rather than listen to them, Obama listened to the sycophantic ass-kissers like Valerie Jarrett.
This is a significant thing.
And one I’m sure will get very little attention in the Enslaved Press.
