When then Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton ran for president in 1992, Pat Buchanan quipped that Clinton’s experience in foreign policy consisted of “eating breakfast once at the International House of Pancakes.” A similar joke may be brewing with Mike Huckabee's coffee this morning.
According to USA Today:
A reporter for The Politico had to tell the former Arkansas governor what was in the National Intelligence Estimate. Here's an excerpt from the transcript that the newspaper published on its website:
David Paul Kuhn: I don’t know to what extent you have been briefed or been able to take a look at the NIE report that came out yesterday ...
Huckabee: I’m sorry?
Kuhn: The NIE report, the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran. Have you been briefed or been able to take a look at it —
Kuhn: Have you heard of the finding?
Huckabee then shares his views on the Iranian program. "I’ve heard, the last two weeks, supposed reports that they are accelerating it and it could be having a reactor in a much shorter period of time than originally been thought," he says, according to Politico.
