Response to babylonsister (Original post)

4. Remember when conservatives cared about national security?

Or at least said they cared about national security? Between Needy Amin's unsecure personal phone, Kushner's dubious security clearance (and contacts with world-wide bad actors), and private meetings without his own interpreter present, the White House seems leakier than a sieve.

Our allies don't mind, because they need to get real information and they know they aren't getting it through the usual channels of the published public utterances of the administration. Our enemies are ecstatic, harvesting a treasure trove of information with no more investment than some poor schlub listening in on a set of headphones and transcribing the good stuff. Meanwhile, morale at the intelligence agencies is through the floor, and field operatives have to wonder moment by moment whether rounding this next corner will be their last.

But at least some Republicans are bristling. Or very concerned. Or standing by this administration in a way that Tammy Wynette never stood by her man.
