Except that he would've only torn the top sheet off and discarded the rest in the round file.

It's an intractable problem like peace in the Middle-East or an umbrella.

17. Waaay too many big words in the Executive Summary alone.

NO ONE could expect der Dumpster to read half that many words. Even if they were the best words.

And the details. UGG. Details are not fair. Pages and pages of charts with really tiny print and no pictures. Not even any bog colored arrows.

And all those phases and sub-phases. Very confusing.

No wonder why der Dumpster threw this playbook out and fired the committee responsible for implementing it.

So much better to start with 15 cases which should have gone to zero in a couple days.

shoved in front of every GOP member for reference. Many of them still cling to the "No one could have predicted it" excuse in public.

A page by page seminar for the MSM would likewise be very helpful, at least for the ones who can still read actual documents as opposed to twitter headlines.

Of course it goes without saying that NOBODY in the current White House would ever attempt to read this.
However it certainly will come in handy for President Biden when he steps in to the Oval Office in January.

73. Politico has this article about the Playbook:

The NSC devised the guide — officially called the Playbook for Early Response to High-Consequence Emerging Infectious Disease Threats and Biological Incidents, but known colloquially as “the pandemic playbook” — across 2016. The project was driven by career civil servants as well as political appointees, aware that global leaders had initially fumbled their response to the 2014-2015 spread of Ebola and wanting to be sure that the next response to an epidemic was better handled.

...The document was originally overseen by Beth Cameron, a former civil servant who led the directorate before leaving the White House in March 2017. Cameron confirmed to POLITICO that the directorate created a playbook for NSC staff intended to help officials confront a range of potential biological threats.

72. On Page 19 *Key Questions*

 

****Is the Host government being transparent with data sharing?


***What is the WHO assessment?

If tRump and Company asked these questions, and 1)believed that China lied (they did, aren't we all -all but certain- of that now?)

and tRump believes the WHO was complicit in China's lies (they weren't another scapegoat for tRump), would that not inspire/initiate action sooner?

This is a literal algorithm on questions to ask and responses to consider. Boggles my mind on why it wasn't used.
