Leaks are no okay, except when they are.

 Well, I guess we know who leaked the info.

I love their use of the phrase "Diplomatic Threats". Is that an Oxymoron, it feels like an Oxymoron.

It's interesting that Trump retweets leaked classified information, but unclassified stuff, like the personal dynamics of the "Bachelor in Paradise" style management of the white house cabinet and family... that shiat needs to be ferreted out.

If Trump wasn't such a danger to global stability, it'd be fun to see how long America could have leadership like this and not collapse under it's own weight.

Also, will the collapse be gradual or will it accelerate as it crumbles?

Not really, threatening kinda is part of diplomacy.

The article's mistake is assuming that Trump pays attention and manages to absorb information during intelligence briefings.

The more likely explanation is that Trump simply saw an article that reinforced his "North Korea BAD!" view and retweeted it without giving it much thought.

I have no doubt Trump leaked this to Fox, then amplified it through his twitter account.

Simple.  Because in Trump's ape brain, anything that supports his immediate line of thinking or personally bolsters his ego is something he needs to actively promote.  Fox reporting leaked classified intelligence that essentially supports the notion of "North Korea bad, me good" going through Trump's skull was a winner.

Forget that it is based on a classified leak which supposedly this administration is up in arms over.  Forget that is classified and the ramifications of reporting it could be devastating.  Forget that it might just be plain wrong.  For Trump, it's all about making himself feel good.
 
2017-08-08 09:42:05 AM  
Ummm since we're technically still at war with NK couldn't this be considered treason?

Der Gropenfailure is allowed to declassify anything he wants. Including stuff on FAUX and Friends. Including retroactively.

I guess the good news is that there won't be a second since the first one is still technically ongoing.  No paperwork required to start a new one.

It's also a mistake to believe that Trump has consistent principles.  He only gets angry about leaks because they make him look bad.  If it makes him look good then leak away.  The only principle here at work is the stroking of his ego.

Trump would be fired if he were an employee in any Organisation where they teach employees about responsible use of social media.

Remember when the NSA documents were leaked and government employees were told not to read these documents now available publically because they were still covered by the confidentiality agreement? And certainly they were told not to retweet those documents. Good times.

Well, Trump was able to tell the Russian ambassador that the Israelis were providing the intelligence about ISIS planning laptop bombs.

I sincerely hope this is true and comes out in the press fully sourced. Not that he'd admit to being a hypocrite or anything but I'd love to beat him and the republicans over the head with it until 2020.

Every time I see these reports coming from our government in regards to them attempting to set up the narrative as to the reasons 'why' we need to intervene/go to war-- I'm reminded of this bit from Chappelle's Show...

Sources are now saying the North Korea leaked the fake info to lull Americans into thinking they know what's going on. If it's on FOX is about a future election.

The long game is to wait until 2018, between the primaries and the November elections.

By retweeting the report, Trump appears to be giving the report his stamp of approval - since if the story were wrong, the president probably wouldn't be promoting it.

Bwahahahahaaa. Riiiiiggggghhhhhttt.

Looking forward to being called a traitor for the next six years, then searching in vain for a Trump supporter when it all goes to shiat for his last two years.

I like to think the US will have a much more tremendous and luxurious collapse than some third world petro-state entirely dependent on the price of oil and the goodwill of a nakedly corrupt government.

All of the interviews with top White House officials should have very very very concerned reporters saying, "My goodness, this is a big leak of sensitive and dangerous intel at the highest levels... aren't you upset? You seem pleased at this one..."

Hopefully, the NSA will point out that certain keystrokes indicate the report was written on Bannon's typewriter.

True, makes me wonder if a "police action" is just technical enough to be a valid excuse.

That sentence was perfectly fine up until the hyphen.  That one little line was the distinction between journalism and pure derp.

At least he told the public instead of just handing the intel straight to the Russkies privately..   so he's got that going for him.
