Trump Turns On His Spies

I saw this coming! I am kin to Ian Fleming.

Every president is entitled to a handpicked crew of intelligence advisers, the team composed to provide unvarnished advice on global trouble spots. President Trump is no different, naming top leaders to the FBI, CIA and national security agencies. Their collected advice may be flawed or doubtful, but it should be taken seriously.

In the latest case, it amounts to warnings that North Korea is “unlikely to give up” its nuclear weapons and Iran hasn’t restarted similar weapons work, ended earlier by an agreement led by the United States.

Neither declaration is going down well with Trump, who denounced the assessments as “passive and naive” in a shin-kicking tweet. He’s furious, because his appointees aren’t acting like they should and chiming in with his worldview. He’s headlined his dealings with North Korea’s leader as offering a “decent chance of Denuclearization” and is looking forward to a second meeting amid growing doubts. His intelligence team is directly contradicting this rosy view.
