Over 50 intelligence analysts from the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained stating that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda were being altered by senior officials in the Obama administration.
So now we are supposed to trust them that Russia did WikiLeaks’ hacking?
It’s being called a ‘revolt’ by the more honest analysts in the command who are tired of seeing their hard work manipulated. They called it a ‘cancer’!
The Daily Beast reports:
“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.”
This is nothing new. The left has relied on the false narrative for decades and Obama has taken it to new heights. The whole Benghazi catastrophe happened to keep Obama’s “Everything is all better now!” mantra in place. He has made things worse.
Won’t it be nice to finally have some truth coming out of our intelligence agencies?
With everyone soooo serious lately – how about a little comic relief? The Flipside with Michael Loftus makes fun of Joseph Clancy, the head of the secret service. This is one of the funniest skits I have ever seen. With Barack Obama heading out the door, maybe the Secret Service will finally get their act together! If not, Donald Trump will have to say, “You’re Fired!”
