Pentagon just released information that there was a secret mission this summer to try and rescue hostages in Syria…and it failed. Why? Because the hostages were not there. Why kind of terrible intelligence work is that? Get rid of the CIA Director Brennan! (I have already said he should go — he lied about the CIA doing domestic spying!!)
And why would the Administration release this today? It was not a leak but a release by the Administration! They released information about their failure — why? I think to try and make it look like the President is really involved (he authorized it) — because right now the optics are that he would rather be on the golf course than dealing with the crisis.
