A deeper understanding of American intelligence via the PDB
I still would like to see this memo itself, who wrote it, who’s purpose did it serve, and to whom was it addressed. Otherwise i have no reason not to conclude that the proposition in the headline of the Mother Jones article, is just another case of journalistic #MakeShitUp.
Conclusion from the article ...
My conclusion ...
Priess agrees the length and style of the daily brief is not necessarily cause for worry, but he points out that when a crisis hits, the president may be less prepared if he’s not getting the extensive analysis his predecessors received. "There may be more need for the backstory and the explanations during the crisis than he would have if he absorbed more assessments every day," Priess explains. "The caveat to that, of course, is if he would simply not read anything if more assessments were put in front of him, if he would just not bother to read it at all because it did not fit his style, then it would be counterproductive anyway."conclusion ofarticle

One would have to have been a manager or leader to understand. The PDB probably is a thing that intelligence people curry favor to be part of which may obscure other contrary pieces of information or over-emphasize attendees’ importance.
