Who Won the Week? 02/07/2021

FWWTWThe idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.

I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.

This week, I’m designated U.S. national security as the Who Won the Week winner. Why? Well, because President Joe Biden said that former president Donald Trump should not have access to classified information in the form of the briefings usually given to ex-presidents, citing Trump’s “erratic behavior” and the risk that he might recklessly reveal sensitive information.

Biden has the unilateral authority to deny intelligence access to anyone he chooses, and his remarks amounted to a statement that Trump — who, for four years, controlled the entire U.S. security apparatus — was himself a security risk.

Denying a former president from receiving national security briefings would be an unprecedented action, but Biden made it clear that he and other officials believe that Trump poses a risk to national security because of what he might disclose.

And I couldn’t agree more.

What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?

    I might have said Pres. Biden, for much the same reason, and because he seems to be taking logical steps toward righting many of the wrongs of the last 4 years.

    I do agree! Trump is a lunatic, and would probably leak all sorts of info, so best not to give him that opportunity!
