Romney, Ryan to Begin Receiving Intelligence Briefings

GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, will begin receiving regular intelligence briefings from national security officials in President Obama’s administration as soon as they are finished with the required security clearance process, The Washington Post reported.

The briefings, which a campaign spokeswoman told The Post are to begin next week, are customary for major-party candidates after their nominations.

With limited intelligence information, Romney struggled this week to respond appropriately to a national security crisis in which the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans was killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. He has been criticized for acting rashly in condemning Obama’s handling of the situation.
