He's just an elected politician and being elected doesn't mean he has a right
to know everything about our security and our projects.
"There can be no levels of security clearance above the POTUS"
REMEMBER: The POTUS is only a politician. Do you really think they let the leader of a country know EVERYTHING? He just runs the country, and some things are better kept away from a person who has that much power. Even if he does have the highest security clearance, do YOU think the government will show him EVERYTHING? I don't think so.
So, I disagree, I can't prove it, but I think the President doesn't know what some of these agencies keep locked up behind those doors.edit on 25-9-2013 by wofat18 because: (no reason given)
Two words - plausible deniability.
Also, I agree with other posters here, POTUS is an elected official, and a short term one at that, at the best, for eight years.
Why should he (or she) know the nations secrets once they return to civilian life? It's a high security risk to have someone outside of the control of these circles knowing certain facts, I'm sure.
