My Wall Street Journal Op-ed on the daily presidential briefing

Here's my op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on why the beneficiary of the daily presidential briefing is the president himself -- and it may be better for the country, and certainly for Congress, if they didn't hold this briefing.

In my original draft, I had a great quote from the Vietnam War classic Dispatches that had to be cut for space. But I wanted to put it here, as it really gets what the issue with official briefings.

"It could have rained frogs over Tan Son Nhut and they wouldn’t have been upset; Cam Ranh Bay could have dropped into the South China Sea and they would have found some way to make it sound good for you." Michael Herr, Dispatches
