Emmy award winning investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson said that sources have told her that President Barack Obama doesn’t bother reading intelligence reports on terrorist groups “he does not consider terrorists,” despite being on the U.S. list of terrorist organizations.
She made her remarks during a telephone interview on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show” Wednesday.
“I have talked to people who have worked in the Obama administration who firmly believe he has made up his mind,” Attkisson said.
“I would say closed his mind, they say, to their intelligence that they’ve tried to bring him about various groups that he does not consider terrorists, even if they are on the U.S. list of designated terrorists. He has his own ideas, and there are those who’ve known him a long time who say this dates back to law school. He does not necessarily—you may think it’s a good trait, you may think it’s a bad trait—he does not necessarily listen to the people with whom he disagrees. He seems to dig in. I would suppose because he thinks he’s right. He is facing formidable opposition on this particular point,” she told Malzberg.
“I don’t know the reason for it,” she continued. “I’ve only been told by those who have allegedly attempted to present him, or have been in the circle that has attempted to present him, with certain intelligence that they said he doesn’t want it. He said he doesn’t want it or he won’t read it, in some instances.”
“He doesn’t want it, he says he doesn’t want it, or he won’t read it in some instances.”
After the interview, Malzberg tweeted:
