Trump Tweet Gets BuzzFeed Access to CIA Files on Syrian Rebels
The CIA must adequately respond to BuzzFeed Inc.'s Freedom of Information Act request for information about payments to Syrian rebels because President Donald Trump already acknowledged them in a tweet, a federal district court ruled.
Because Trump’s tweet acknowledged some payments, the CIA can’t avoid responding to BuzzFeed’s request by saying it can neither confirm nor deny the existence of a covert program to arm the rebels, the opinion by Judge Rudolph Contreras of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia said....
I tend to support transparency, but can't say that I know for sure that it's a good thing for us to know more about payments to Syrian rebels. Rather, I'm posting this because 45SHOLE is an idiot, again, an incompetent threat to our national security.
