    Won't really be a shock to insiders who know the way these intelligence sharing operations work. My guess is the "shock" is intelligence agencies purposefully withheld numerous amounts of information from the POTUS. This would not be anything new. The thing that would be new is if Obama or his Administration came out and said this, and admitted that this was done.

    That would likely cause utter chaos and intense rage and anger at the POTUS from intelligence agencies, that I'd strongly recommend against.

    This  very likely is the reason for the pushback of comments to a later time and the now news that it might not even be the POTUS doing the talking.

    So in conclusion I would now severely doubt anything from these remarks will be a "shock". Once again the "shock" will be censored.

      And our new president inherited a broken, pissed off intelligence community.

      Remember, sometimes factions of our own government work agianst one another - behind the scenes. These factions must be appeased.
