Fox and Friends, America’s Experts on Special Operations and Intelligence

Fox and Friends decided to play Monday morning quarterback as they discussed the recently aborted US Navy SEAL mission meant to capture Kenyan terrorist Abdulkadir Mohamed Abdulkadir, also known as Ikrima. Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and Elisabeth Hasselback apparently think they know what it is like collecting intelligence and actually conducting operations only our best and brightest know how to execute.

“They had great Intel,” said Steve Doocy on the recent US Navy SEAL mission in Somalia. Sorry Steve, you wouldn’t know great Intel, let alone good intel, if it smacked you square in the face! In fact, if I was a betting man, I would place a large wager against Doocy’s knowledge on the key steps involved to complete the intelligence cycle.

    1. If the intel was so good, it never would've aborted....and if it was REALLY good....it wouldn't be a  "story"at all. 2. They love to say "Intel".....discussing it on TV means they have no understanding of its true nature, but they feel batman cool sayin' it. 3. Young hot chick..... wondering if she can make an 'o" with....."MUTE!" 4. Holy crap....I can read the comment section and post again! 5. Second guessing, totally unqualified, wholly unqualified, COMPLETELY DISRESPECTFUL.

    drummergirl 5000area375, ...Fully 1/4 of the adults in this country can not fill out a driver's license form without assistance.  One third of all the college graduates in this country never read another book not related to their work for the rest of their lives.  Many of those that do indulge in the works of the intellectual successors of Jacqueline Susann... . ...Most high school seniors never heard of Dred Scott... and many never heard of Appomattox... but most can recite volumes about Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga... .
