    So the CIA which usualy has the task to get the intelligence on the ground, didn't. Instead the military, to whom Trump shortly after taking office said something along the line they have card blanche, brings in intelligence reports. What could possibly go wrong with that scenario ^^? I guess it would be a shame if all that equipment wouldn't be used -_- Lets see how much pressure Bone Spurs can withstand.
