HAS anyone bothered to ask: How could it be that the (heretofore) super power of the world can’t seem to “tame” ISIS, or, for that matter, Iran’s mullahs?
IT is urgently imperative for Americans (other patriotic westerners) to internalize how the higher ups in the U.S. Defense and Intelligence communities, CENTCOM, have betrayed them. Now, while the focus of this commentary is on HUSSEIN Obama’s admin, the fact remains that this (intelligence) treachery has been ongoing, at least since peanut farmer Carter took over the helm. Yes, THAT vile anti-semite and anti-American. Patience, dear readers.
AS forewarned on enumerable occasions – the latest on Aug. 30, 2015 – Obama Inc.’s complicity and culpability re intelligence manipulation on ISIS (Iran alike) has been more than instructive.
WHILE ISIS goes from strength to strength…מחיל אל חיל…., “seemingly”, the strongest nation in the world can’t beat them back in the heart of the Mid East. Now, put on your thinking caps and ponder: How can this be? Has the world turned upside down? In a word, yes….
IN the main, the basic reasons for their force strengthening are clear, even though others will never be known. But no one should be foolish enough to opine: Well, they are so brutal, therefore, what can be done? Hogwash. After all, let’s just agree that a few well-placed, pin-pointed MEGA ordinances – from U.S. high-flying aces, and that’s for starters – can wipe out column after column of their (other adversaries alike) advancing forces. And to suggest that this is difficult for said high charging pilots is double hogwash. After all, their satellite imagery, plus other intel, can surely lead them to the exact locations required for targeting.
NEVERTHELESS, in a nutshell, you need to put forth an additional query to get closer to the truth: IF you helped to create a super star team, would you want to see it beaten, let alone participate in its demise?? Of course not.
MOREOVER, aside from a few swipes and jabs, the fact remains that not ONE source of their money supply has been wiped out. And considering that convoy after convoy hauling oil – their major source of funding – has gone unscathed, what does that tell you? What about all their oil fields, why are they still operational? Is the U.S. military lacking tactical ordinance to set them ablaze? Not only that, but why would the military, under the purview of the Commander-in-Chief, leave behind a treasure trove of hardware, upon turning tail from Iraq? Who did they think would inherit said booty?READ REST OF STORY
RESULTANT, U.S. spies aka intelligence analysts (btw, a domain and terrain that this investigative journalist is, well, more than familiar with….let’s just leave it at that) are coming close to a revolt, realizing full well how their data and analysis has been manipulated and downright falsified F/B/O ISIS and the Islamic Caliphate! Hey, what took them so long to come forward? Mind you, the intelligence manipulation/fabrication is NOT news on this end.
BE that as it may, here’s the latest:
It’s being called a ‘revolt’ by intelligence pros who are paid to give their honest assessment of the ISIS war—but are instead seeing their reports turned into happy talk.
More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned.
The complaints spurred the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact that so many people complained suggests there are deep-rooted, systemic problems in how the U.S. military command charged with the war against the self-proclaimed Islamic State assesses intelligence.
“The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official said.
Two senior analysts at CENTCOM signed a written complaint sent to the Defense Department inspector general in July alleging that the reports, some of which were briefed to President Obama, portrayed the terror groups as weaker than the analysts believe they are. The reports were changed by CENTCOM higher-ups to adhere to the administration’s public line that the U.S. is winning the battle against ISIS and al Nusra, al Qaeda’s branch in Syria, the analysts claim.
That complaint was supported by 50 other analysts, some of whom have complained about politicizing of intelligence reports for months. That’s according to 11 individuals who are knowledgeable about the details of the report and who spoke to The Daily Beast on condition of anonymity.
The accusations suggest that a large number of people tracking the inner workings of the terror groups think that their reports are being manipulated to fit a public narrative. The allegations echoed charges that political appointees and senior officials cherry-picked intelligence about Iraq’s supposed weapons program in 2002 and 2003.
The two signatories to the complaint were described as the ones formally lodging it, and the additional analysts are willing and able to back up the substance of the allegations with concrete examples.
One person who knows the contents of the complaint said it used the word “Stalinist” to describe the tone set by officials overseeing the military’s analysis.
Some of those CENTCOM analysts described the sizeable cadre of protesting analysts as a “revolt” by intelligence professionals who are paid to give their honest assessment, based on facts, and not to be influenced by national-level policy. The analysts have accused senior-level leaders, including the director of intelligence and his deputy in CENTCOM, of changing their analyses to be more in line with the Obama administration’s public contention that the fight against ISIS and al Qaeda is making progress. The analysts take a more pessimistic view about how military efforts to destroy the groups are going.
The large number of analysts who complained to the Pentagon inspector general hasn’t been previously reported. Some of them are assigned to work at CENTCOM, the U.S. military’s command for the Middle East and Central Asia, but are officially employed by the Defense Intelligence Agency.
The complaints allege that in some cases key elements of intelligence reports were removed, resulting in a document that didn’t accurately capture the analysts’ conclusions, sources familiar with the protest said. But the complaint also goes beyond alleged altering of reports and accuses some senior leaders at CENTCOM of creating an unprofessional work environment. One person who knows the contents of the written complaint sent to the inspector general said it used the word “Stalinist” to describe the tone set by officials overseeing CENTCOM’s analysis.
Many described a climate in which analysts felt they could not give a candid assessment of the situation in Iraq and Syria. Some felt it was a product of commanders protecting their career advancement by putting the best spin on the war.
Some reports crafted by the analysts that were too negative in their assessment of the war were sent back the chain of the command or not shared up the chain, several analysts said. Still others, feeling the climate around them, self-censored so their reports affirmed already-held beliefs.
“While we cannot comment on the specific investigation cited in the article, we can speak to the process. The Intelligence Community routinely provides a wide range of subjective assessments related to the current security environment. These products and the analysis that they present are absolutely vital to our efforts, particularly given the incredibly complex nature of the multi-front fights that are ongoing now in Iraq and Syria,” said Air Force Col. Patrick Ryder, U.S. CENTCOM spokesman. “Senior civilian and military leadership consider these assessments during planning and decision-making, along with information gained from various other sources, to include the insights provided by commanders on the ground and other key advisors, intelligence collection assets, and previous experience.”
Two of the officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said that analysts began airing their complaints in October in an effort to address the issue internally and only went to the inspector general when that effort failed. Some of those who complained were urged to retire, one official familiar with the report told The Daily Beast. Some agreed to leave.
In recent months, members of the Obama administration have sought to paint the fight against ISIS in rosy hues—despite the terror army’s seizure of major cities like Mosul and Fallujah.
“ISIS is losing,” John Allen, the retired Marine general charged with coordinating the ISIS campaign, said in July.
“I am confident that over time, we will beat, we will, indeed, degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL,” Secretary of State John Kerry said in March, using the government’s preferred acronym for the group.
“No, I don’t think we’re losing,” President Obama said in May.
Yet a growing group of intelligence analysts persisted with their complaints. For some, who have served at CENTCOM for more than a decade, scars remained from the run-up to the 2003 war in Iraq, when poorly written intelligence reports suggesting Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, when it did not, formed the basis of the George W. Bush administration’s case for war.
“They were frustrated because they didn’t do the right thing then” and speak up about their doubts on Iraq’s weapons program, the defense official told The Daily Beast.
INCONTROVERTIBLY, HUSSEIN Obama and higher-ups are the enemy within!
AND with all of the above out in the open, does anyone believe that the Muslimummah isn’t aware of the – once in a lifetime – gift that the Islamist-in-Chief is handing them, one which will expand (and export) the political ideology of Islam westward, and that their time to do so is NOW?
Two Brothers Sent Home Early on Their First Day of School For Not Having the Correct Uniforms BACK to the nation-shattering nexus between Carter and HUSSEIN Obama….
CONSEQUENTIALLY, the same Zbigniew Brzezinski was national security adviser during Carter’s term via the rise of Iran’s mullocracy, and so too he is deeply involved with the shaping of the current administration’s foreign policy. Why is this germane? More importantly, how could it not be?
IN the main, it was Carter, under Brzezinski’s tutelage, who catapulted the Islamic Republic into the theocratic sword of Shia Islam. They are enamored with Marxism and Islam; universalistic ideologies that totally reject the notion of the nation-state. Both ideologies are militaristic and absolutely expansionist. Both are anti-American; the ties that bind. And this is why, under Carter, the defense budget was lowered, and America became a much more target-rich nation. Basically, both Presidents lowered America’s defensive posture to conform with their anti-American worldviews.
AS succinctly elucidated by Professor Paul Eidelberg, an American-Israeli political scientist and a patriot extraordinaire:
As a crypto-Marxist, Brzezinski deplores the nation-state. His book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, declares that “With the splitting and eclipse of Christianity man began to worship a new deity: the nation. The nation became a mystical object claiming man’s love and loyalty. The nation-state along with the doctrine of national sovereignty fragmented humanity. It could not provide a rational framework within which the relations between nations could develop.” Brzezinski sees the nation-state as having only partly increased man’s social consciousness and only partially alleviated the human condition.
“That is why Marxism,” he contends, “represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing of man’s universal vision.” Marxism, he says, “was the most powerful doctrine for generating a universal and secular human consciousness.” Embodied in the Soviet Union, however, Communism became the dogma of a party and, under Stalin, “was wedded to Russian nationalism.”
Although Brzezinski poses as a humanist, he makes a most inhumane statement by saying that: “although Stalinism may have been a needless tragedy, for both the Russian people and Communism as an ideal, there is the intellectually tantalizing possibility that for the world at large it was … a blessing in disguise.”!!! Brzezinski could as readily say: “Yes, Muslims slaughtered more than 200 million people, but Islam brought hundreds of Christian, Jewish, Zoroastrian, Hindu, and Buddhist communities under a single universal vision, that of the Quran”!!!
SIMILARLY, HUSSEIN Obama is a devoted Marxist-Islamist. It (partially) explains why he barely taps Islamic jihadists, and refuses to identify Islam as the root behind worldwide terror. It is why he welcomed Castro’s Cuba into America’s “warm embrace”, and supports Marxist regimes worldwide. Birds of a feather.
MOST significantly, in the same manner in which HUSSEIN Obama’s surrogates manipulated and outright falsified intelligence re ISIS and its capabilities, so too they worked feverishly to make sure that Iran’s mullahs received the “deal” of the century.
INHERENTLY, his overriding goal has always been to ensure the spread of Islam’s umbrella, be it under the Sunni or Shia axis. Now, ask yourselves: Is it a coincidence that Sunni ISIS (alongside the entire Brotherhood Mafia) morphed into a mega threat to the west, at the same time that Iran’s mullahs became nuclear empowered under his “proverbial” wings??
