Yes there was a breakdown in intelligence, and no, the Capitol police were in no way ready for a deadly insurrection by a traitor President's cult, but let's place the blame squarely on the shoulders of the number one person responsible for what happened on January 6th: Trump.

We can also blame the worthless GQP, for their refusal for years to take far right extremist domestic terrorism seriously and for raising hell every time our intel agencies tried to raise the alarm about it because those people are their base.

Trump also hollowed out every agency in our government and drove the morale in them down to zero so, as I said, every bit of this goes to the Former Guy and his enabling party.

All anyone had to do was pay attention to the news and Trump's months-long call to arms.
