Corker complained that Tapper’s question put him in a “personality referee position, which is not a position that I should be in or want to be in.” He then echoed Priess’ point that intelligence briefers “try to keep it to the facts of the intelligence gathering they’ve put together.” Priess said it’s possible, given that Trump has no prior experience with intelligence briefings, that the officers describing global hotspots said “something that he interpreted as a policy recommendation.” The national security expert said it’s also possible that the analysis presented by the briefers didn’t align with the president’s narrative. The source offered as an example Obama’s 2014 reference to ISIS as a “JV team,” when many in the intelligence community regarded it as a strong and growing threat. The other interpretation, Priess said, was that Trump is “seeking to politicize intel briefings he’s received in a way that no other candidate has ever done.” Trump’s claims about his briefings weren’t his first apparent inconsistency on intelligence matters. At Wednesday night’s forum, Trump said he had “great respect for the people” who delivered his intel briefings. A day earlier, on FOX News’ “Fox and Friends,” Trump had been asked if he trusted intelligence. “Not so much from the people that have been doing it for our country,” Trump said. Referring to the previous decade as “catastrophic,” Trump said, “I won’t use them, because they’ve made such bad decisions.” Trump also took aim at the top tier of US military leaders Wednesday night, saying they’d been “reduced to rubble” by Obama. Asked about his plan to have generals submit a proposal to defeat ISIS when he’s declared he knows more about the terror group than they do, Trump said, “Well, they’ll probably be different generals, to be honest with you. I mean, I’m looking at the generals.” A President Trump could do that, according to retired Col. useful sourceCedric Leighton, a former intelligence officer in the Air Force.

When you win a Super Bowl, it looks good for everybody. People get paid, people get taken off the team. http://realcaleblopez.haralsoncounty.org/2016/08/30/useful-ideas-to-consider-on-crucial-aspects-for-interviewWe lost the majority of the chemistry of our team, Dickson said. The core was still there. But some of the things we couldnt help but miss. Some linebackers left, a couple guys retired. It was different. It was a different feel. We hit a patch of people being hurt and it just wasnt the same. Theres been more roster stability with the Panthers, who lost four starters all on defense from the 2015 team that won its first 14 games and finished the regular season 15-1. Allen and cornerback Charles Tillman retired, safety Roman Harper signed with the Saints and Norman landed in Washington with a five-year, $75 million contract after failing to come to terms with the Panthers. A few other part-time players were not retained, but the core remains intact.
