History Doesn’t Repeat Itself . . .

. . . except when it does. This from Seymour Hersh’s recent memoir, Reporter:

The pieces revealed highly classified evidence reporting that Iraq had used a nerve agent in its war with Iran. The intelligence, gathered from satellite coverage, had been presented three times within a week to President Reagan without any indication that he had read it, forcing CIA officials to redline the most pressing issues in the President’s daily intelligence brief that they prepared, which he apparently was not reading. (I was told at the time, but did not verify, that the White House’s national security aides eventually found a way to engage the President — by having the daily CIA intelligence brief recorded on a videotape and screened on TV for him.)

The only thing that's saving us from this asshole is his incompetence. If his lQ was in double digits he would have blown up the world by now.

Has anybody ever seen video of the clown president reading? Were his lips moving?
