So it's the Brits' or more generally the Europeans' fault? Your own President said your systems didn't work. The US had various "dots" including from European sources, which it failed to join up. Stop blaming others for your own failings.

Well, I didn't say it was *all* the Europeans' fault. I'm hard on the US government failings as well. There's plenty of blame to go around. But it's a copout to say "Your system wasn't perfect, so we had no obligation to help." I'm sure there were plenty of mistakes on the way to Dunkirk, but that wasn't a reason for us to stay on the other side of the Atlantic.
