“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
President Joe Biden’s dangerous mishandling of classified information followed him onto foreign soil this week, as officials found a secret document lying on the ground on the streets of a European city.
Biden visited Ireland this week to celebrate the anniversary of a historic peace treaty—but his infamously irresponsible treatment of sensitive information threatened to help a terrorist group target police and detonate a bomb.
Biden went to his ancestral homeland of Ireland this week to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, the ceasefire between Irish Protestants and Catholics coordinated in 1998 by President Bill Clinton.

The treaty brought an end to decades of bombings and assassinations called “The Troubles” that killed 3,568 people, most of them civilians.
Things have calmed down since 1998 — but Biden’s visit threatened to bring the bad old days back to life.
Officials were shocked found a secret document with every single detail of Biden’s visit to the emerald isle lying on a street.
An unidentified person passing by found the classified document, which detailed everywhere Biden would be staying during his trip, as well as the telephone numbers of the Irish police who would be defending him for his whole stay.
“An investigation has commenced and we have notified the Senior Information Risk Officer,” the Police Service of Northern Ireland told the Irish Examiner. “We take the safety of visiting dignitaries, members of the public, and our officers and staff extremely seriously and will put the appropriate actions in place.”
Terrorists had already targeted Biden and the PSNI.

On Sunday, police said they had foiled a terrorist plot to set off a bomb during Biden’s visit to Belfast. A group called the New IRA tried to purchase bomb-making materials in the city of Derry (also known as Londonderry), “The belief is that the New IRA was planning some sort of attack to coincide with Biden’s visit,” a source told the Belfast Telegraph.
How would knowing the exact location of the president of the United States, and the contact information of his guards, helped their plot?
This is pretty ironic, given the way Biden lashed into former President Donald Trump over classified documents that Trump may have had the legal authority to retain in his Florida residence of Mar-a-Lago.
“How that could possibly happen, how one—anyone could be that irresponsible?” Biden told 60 Minutes last September. “And I thought, what data was in there that may compromise sources and methods? By that, I mean names of people who helped or the—et cetera. And it just—totally irresponsible.”
What should we think of the way Biden handled this classified document in a terrorist-laden foreign nation?
The Irish document drop comes amid a growing controversy over the scandalous way Biden has treated classified documents before and since becoming president.

Agents have searched the Penn Biden Center, as well as the president’s homes in Rehoboth Beach and Wilmington, Delaware, hauling out boxes of classified materials.
The first batch of secret documents contained hot national secrets about Ukraine, Iran, and the United Kingdom. They dated from his second term as Vice President, 2013-2016.
Agents found another six classified documents at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware.
All told, Biden handed over nine boxes filled with classified documents to the National Archives, his lawyer told Senators Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, in March.
At least 10 of the documents had the highest classification rating, “Top Secret,” which government officials say could cause “exceptionally grave damage” to national security.
As vice president, Biden had no right to take any classified material home with him, legal experts say.

Worse yet, Biden stored some of the national secrets in the garage of one of his palatial homes where his son, Hunter Biden, regularly paid visits.
Emails discovered on Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” made it seem like Hunter used classified information to win a gig paying tens of thousands of dollars a month at a board chairman of the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma.
The lax and lazy handling of national secrets hasn’t stopped since Biden entered the Oval Office—or that Hollywood replica of the office where he spends much of his time.
This Thursday, police arrested a 21-year-old member of the Massachusetts National Guard named Jack Teixeira for leaking classified documents, including to gaming forums.
The documents show that the United States is actively at war, trying to kill Russians in Ukraine, and that Ukraine is losing the war badly, Tucker Carlson told his audience Thursday night.
It was a major embarrassment for the administration, which had spent the last year denying both those claims.
How did Biden handle it?

“I’m not concerned about the leak,” Biden told reporters.
If there’s one thing Biden’s behavior for the last 10 years has proved, it’s that he has no problem leveraging top-secret information about Ukraine for their own agendas.
Wasn’t this administration supposed to prove that “the adults are back in charge”? Wasn’t this administration going to plug up holes created by the “amateurs” Trump had put in place and tell the international community, “America is back”?
America is on its back thanks to Biden’s irresponsible administration, which can’t handle inflation, immigration, or information.
Unlike the documents they store in leaky laptops, drafty garages, and drop on the streets of foreign cities, the danger posed to Americans by the Biden administration is no secret.
