A number of former top National Security Agency (NSA) officials were standing around Friday, chatting prior to an academic conference in Washington.

The president offered a list things he says he “predicted” would happen, including Brexit, Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal, Bernie Sanders’ loss in the Democratic primary — even his false suggestion that a terror attack had occurred in Sweden the night before.
