Unfortunately, he probably should have known a little bit about the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, since he is technically the commander-in-chief of it.
On his trip to get a burger with Brian Williams at Five Guys this afternoon, the president appears to have learned of the existence of a Defense Department intelligence arm, the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, from an agency employee also at the burger restaurant.
“So explain to me exactly what this National Geospatial…” Obama said, after the worker mentioned his employer, according to a video of the event.
“We work with, uh, satellite imagery,” the worker, Walter replied. (H/T – Politico)
The exchange between the clueless Obama and the NGIA employee is a riot, and you can see the video of the exchange HERE.
Now, in fairness, I have never heard of the NGIA, either, but then again, I am not the President of the United States . . . yet.
