In which the president discovers an American intelligence agency at Five Guys


www.politico.com...

On his trip to get a burger with Brian Williams at Five Guys this afternoon, the President appears to have learned of the existence of a Defense Department intelligence arm, the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, from an agency employee also at the burger restaurant.

"So explain to me exactly what this National Geospatial..." Obama said, after the worker mentioned his employer, according to a video of the event.

"We work with, uh, satellite imagery," the worker, Walter replied.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. He wants to make the government bigger? How's that going to work when he doesn't know what the already existing parts of the government already do?

Maybe Barry thinks that satellite spy imagery isn't so important. Who needs to know the guy to get in contact with to see if someone's gettin' ready to shot a missile at the US, right?

I understand that the federal government is huge, but this organization sounds somewhat important, as it's an intelligence agency:

According to the Defense Department:

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is a Department of Defense combat support agency and a member of the national Intelligence Community (IC). NGA develops imagery and map-based intelligence solutions for U.S. national defense, homeland security and safety of navigation.

NGA provides timely, relevant and accurate geospatial intelligence in support of national security objectives. The term "geospatial intelligence" means the exploitation and analysis of imagery and geospatial information to describe, assess and visually depict physical features and geographically referenced activities on the Earth. Geospatial intelligence consists of imagery, imagery intelligence and geospatial (e.g., mapping, charting and geodesy) information.

President Obama does have a poor logistical knowledge of Government Departments and Agencies. It's one of the key reasons I believe none of his legistlation was passed and rarely sponsored as a U.S. Senator. Most of his Bills read like abstract ideas with lots of x's and blanks to fill in later presumably by cosponsors as to which departments and agencies could make such things happen and what the costs and time frame would be.

I wouldn't go so far as to say someone who lacks a wealth of working experience would make for a bad President, just one's that needs some good adivsors, thankfully he has ace experts like Napilatano to help him!
