Media Are Playing Games Yet Again With Anonymous Russia Leaks


Much of the case for the Iraq War was based on the Bush administration’s claim that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction. When the United States declared an end to the war late in 2011, more than 4,400 American military members had been killed and nearly 32,000 wounded. No weapons of mass destruction had been found.

It’s one of the most significant and catastrophic intelligence errors in U.S. history. A bipartisan commission found that U.S. intelligence “seriously misjudged” Iraq’s weapons program because of their “heavy reliance on a human source–codenamed ‘Curveball’–whose information later proved to be unreliable.” The commission wrote, “Even more misleading was the river of intelligence that flowed from the CIA to top policymakers over long periods of time–in the President’s Daily Brief (PDB)” and other reports that were “more alarmist” and “less nuanced.”

Trump Declares Himself Hardest Working President After WH Leaks


In a series of tweets, the President responded to detractors who are claiming that Trump takes an unacceptable amount of ‘executive time’ off the job by declaring himself the hardest working President in history.

“No president ever worked harder than me (cleaning up the mess I inherited)!” Trump tweeted Monday after his White House schedule was leaked to the media.

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney vowed that the staffer who leaked the schedule will be outed within a week, prompting more schedules to leak online.

The schedules indicate that around 60 percent of the president’s schedule is devoted to “Executive Time.”
