Independent investigative reporter and host of “Full Measure,” Sharyl Attkisson is giving a blistering account of what one source called Barack Obama’s potential “personality flaw,” leading him to only see and believe what he wants to see and believe when it comes to the global threat from terrorism – that, as opposed to what ground operators are actually trying to report to him.
This goes hand-in-hand with recent reports that up to 50 intelligence types claim the administration has been systematically altering intelligence reports for political reasons.

According to Attkisson, her sources say President Obama is “selective about what he wants to hear and wants to believe when it comes to intelligence.”
“I’ve spoken with people who have dealt with the White House and feel it’s a serious issue,” added Attkisson:
For example, one concrete thing we’ve seen as a result of that is the President calling ISIS a ‘JV’ team when his ground people say they never told him that. And you have to wonder who he’s listening to and where he’s getting that information from and why he continues to go with that versus the things being told to him, or trying to be presented to him from ground level intelligence – especially when he’s been proven to be so thoroughly mistaken over and over again.
She also said one source described it as “a personality flaw”, in essence, “the inability to open your mind beyond what you want to hear, or what certain people are telling you to understand the truth of the facts may be different than what you’re hearing.” He is “very insulated by some key people who protect him from information that he doesn’t want to hear…. That’s just the way he operates, apparently,” she concluded.
Attkisson was a guest today on Breitbart News Daily on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, which broadcasts weekdays from 6AM to 9AM EST.
