Watch the video, listen to who is speaking, and understand that these revelations are not leaks, but were undoubtedly authorized at the highest levels.
When you hear POTUS, SecDef, SecNav, and members of Congress state that they are committed to maintaining military readiness to meet the multiple global threat blah blah blah, understand that they are ignorant of the facts, or lying.

Anyone else feeling fundamentally transformed?
