10:21 am
he did on that front. but more importantly, and -- and what the cia director john brennan didn't go this far. the fact is the president seemed to accept putin's conclusion over the intelligence community of this country, and that the message that some may receive on that and to do that in eastern europe which is always living under the threat of russian aggression made it even more frustrating for intelligence officials, and you can see the frustration on brennan. got to remember he's a career cia guy. this is sort of a partisan. standing up in the intel community and there is a lot of rank and file and very uncomfortable with the things that the president has been saying. >> overall this is the first g-20 summit, 19 verse 1 throughout much of it. >> he i think feels good about his trip to europe in that he is comfortable playing that role. >> right. >>
