Michael Hayden: Obama Isn't Showing Weakness On Terror, He Legitimately Doesn't Think It Is Important


Former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden said on MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning that the president's very short statement about the terror attacks this week in Brussels was not a sign of weakness, the president was intentionally sending the message "that it is not that big a deal."

MICHAEL HAYDEN: I'm going to say something that is going to sound pretty harsh, but I think it is true. [The president's statement] wasn't a mistake, that wasn't weakness, that was policy.

His going to the ballpark and spending less than a minute on the attack. I actually believe that the president's policy, in his heart of hearts is: That is not that big a deal."

There are other things that are more important, and that is what he messaging.
