Savvy or incompetence?

Here’s an excellent analysis of the story about Pres. Trump revealing sensitive intelligence information to Russian representatives, at least as it’s currently reported. This story is coming from an anonymous source (though at least three outlets have confirmed it), and we might learn more as we go along. I think the fourth point is especially relevant. Assuming he did reveal the information, it matters why he did so. He is within his legal authority as president to reveal whatever he wants. Maybe he did so for genuine strategic reasons. Unfortunately, my guess is that he didn’t even know that what he was saying would have bad consequences. All presidents have to climb the learning curve while in office, but some people are better prepared than others when they arrive.
