Dick Morris: Obama Went Out of Way to Miss Intelligence Briefings

By    |   Wednesday, 01 October 2014 11:15 AM

President Barack Obama has missed 58 percent of the national security intelligence briefings during each of his terms in office, political commentator and author Dick Morris said Wednesday on "America’s Forum" on Newsmax TV.

"When you miss an intelligence briefing, it takes some effort," Morris explained. "They come to you and usually it's the first thing in the morning and always an aide that comes in.

Morris is currently on tour for his just-released book "Power Grab: Obama's Dangerous Plan for a One-Party Nation," which has already hit No. 1 on Amazon.

"[President Bill] Clinton used to listen to it while he was brushing his teeth, while he was shaving and still in his pajamas. They come to the president and to miss the briefing, you literally have to tell the guy go home and stay away. When he's traveling, the aide is with him and giving him the briefing. Obama claims he checked it on his iPad, but there's a huge difference there. If you're reading a briefing, you skim over it and you can't ask the machine questions. You can't ask if that's human intelligence or signals intelligence or when did this first appear? Not having a national intelligence briefing, if you're president, is essentially not doing the job."

According to Morris, Obama does not really care about foreign policy because his ultimate goal is a one-party system.

"The goal of foreign policy is to be left alone so that he can make his transformations within the U.S.," Morris said.

"The only real point of congruence is his courting of the Islamic vote in the U.S. and his opening our borders, which he did this month to 100,000 Syrian refugees. I predicted a couple of months ago that Obama would try to confer refugee status on those children coming in from Central America. Well, he just did yesterday. That's an open invitation for more to come and a promise of amnesty once they get here."

By designating as refugees people who are fleeing crime instead of famine, disease or war, it allows the United Nations "to demand that the U.S. open its borders to people from those countries."

"The flow of refugees is controlled by the U.N., not by the U.S.," Morris said. "The U.N. designates people as refugees and then the U.S. agrees to take 100,000 to 200,000 of them. By agreeing with the U.N. high commissioner, who has been pressing for a year now to make the case that these kids coming in are not illegal immigrants but they're refugees, he really opens the door to them."

Refugees who arrive in the U.S. legally are provided a "legal status and can go on to become citizens, just like the Vietnamese boat people did," Morris said. "Here, we're dealing with people who are fleeing drug gangs and criminal epidemic. If you apply that standard, all of north Mexico could come here."
