It was this particular issue that elicited my grudging respect for W and the realization he wasn't the complete nincompoop I'd thought he was.

Apparently, near the end of his term he'd read a book about the 1918 Flu pandemic while he was on vacation. He felt so strongly and was alarmed about it. Immediately upon his return to the WH he'd brought in an advisor and asked what could be done to prevent a situation like that from occurring in the future.

One of the items of highest priority he handed off to Obama was the project they'd come up with in the playbook and surveillance office. President Obama agreed and completed the project.

Trump trashed it all.

The bottom line is, if the playbook had been followed what has transpired over the last nine months and over 300,000+ American lives lost would have been largely avoided.

This has hardly been reported in the main stream media and is the primary reason Trump and his Republican enablers should not be allowed to walk away without major repercussions.
