    Even if I do trust him, he's not going to always be the president.

    Process matters a lot, and this administration hasn't really tackled it when it comes to "national security." There are probably ways to make this all run better within the bounds of the constitution, without sacrificing the needed secrecy around particular situations. Some of that would require congressional cooperation that ain't coming soon, but some of it probably would not.

    I suspect that the reality is that nobody wants to open the political can of worms. And I'm realistic about that, I don't think it's stupid to want to avoid that particular political clusterfuck while also trying to get other things through. You know, like a budget.

    I do think it's dangerous, in the long run, regardless.
