Posted on 11/19/2016 6:27:37 PM PST by blueyon
For years, many Republicans and conservatives have charged that President Barack Obama was shielding embarrassing intelligence and policy details about Iran in order to support the nuclear deal reached last year.
With Donald Trump's upset victory, the party of Lincoln will have an opportunity to declassify and disclose this information. While no decisions have been made, two early picks to Trump's cabinet suggest this is going to happen.
Let's start with retired general Michael Flynn, the next president's choice to be national security adviser. Flynn served for two years as Obama's director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012 to 2014. Just as relevant, however, is that in 2011 he ran a team at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that reviewed the troves of material captured in the 2011 Osama bin Laden raid.
Under Obama, the intelligence community has declassified a small fraction of those documents and released them in drips and drabs. This prompted Flynn, after he retired in 2014, to charge that the disclosures were selective. Flynn has said in interviews and writings that some documents captured in the bin Laden raid showed a much tighter relationship between Iran and al-Qaeda than previously disclosed.

Just helping Obama with his promise of transparency.
More preemptive whining from the left.
Obama is guilty of Treason.
I second the motion....
The stench of Zero’s dirty laundry is all over the security apparatus. Heads will roll.
we are talking about GOPeee on the one hand and Trump and his adherents on the other. The party of Lincoln has not disappeared from the landscape, having been sold out by a bunch of carpet bagging crony country-clubbers.
For the first TWO SOLID YEARS of the Obama Admin ALL that we heard about was how EVERYTHING wrong with the USA was alllllll the fault of George W.
We heard it a MILLION times.
It got so bad that ANY time there was a thread about ANY bad thing, freepers would jump in preemptively with “Bush’s fault...!”
OBAMA EARNED IT.
If true, a lot of Freepers might be interested in hearing the data.
But GOPe would have been voted into a deep minority except that Trump said he needed them to pass his reforms. In my book he owns them and if they defect again out they go.
Can you say treason? Bring it on.
A lot was. Who would ever have imagined we could elect someone like Trump and toss out both of them.
Why not document exactly what went on the the StatFor agreement in Iraq and air that too.
Hey, why not air the thinking that went into destroying the Middle East?
Hey, what was the reason to turn our back on and overthrow Mubarak? It’s not like he was a dependable ally in the M.E.
Why did we go to and lead from behind in Libya?
Who, What, Where, Why and How of the gun running operations funneled through Libya?
Hey, what about Tunisia?
Why the Eff do we care about some jerkoff in Syria? Why are we fomenting that civil war?
Why are we demanding Europe take the refugees we created?
I bet it’s 24/7 cya mode at the White House right now.
I think it will also come out sometime after late January.
P R O S E C U T E !
They should wait until his 1st summer vacation at Maralago and do a total dump...
Let’s also air the facts about the Senate standing the Constitution on its head with the Corker bill which allowed the Iran “deal”.
Only Tom Cotton voted against it.
We will have mass prosecutions and indictments
What are they crying about? Obama said he would have the “most transparent administration is history”. Or maybe Bill Clinton said that. Either way, drain the swamp.
