In what is a shocking development, 50 intelligence analysts are in full revolution against the Obama regime. They assert that Obama is cooking the intelligence books:
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.
Obama’s hand can be seen in the process:
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.
Obama wants ISIS undersold:
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.
In great irony, Obama blamed “bad intel” for his miserable performance.
Obama had been warned three times about ISIS, including a warning from Lt. Gen Michael Flynn:
On Feb. 11, 2014, the Pentagon’s top intelligence official, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, warned the group would likely attempt to take over even more territory.
“ISIL probably will attempt to take territory in Iraq and Syria to exhibit its strength in 2014, as demonstrated recently in Ramadi and Fallujah, and the group’s ability to concurrently maintain multiple safe havens in Syria,” Flynn told the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Michael Flynn was the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012-2014, and was appointed by Obama. Flynn has been very critical of Obama’s disastrous Middle East policies. Flynn asserts that arming and funding ISIS was a “willful decision”:
Similarly, Rand Paul has asserted that Obama armed the allies of ISIS.
There’s more US stupidity here:
Why is Obama cooking the books?
It’s not secret that Obama (and Hillary Clinton) wanted Assad out. To that end Obama and Hillary were in favor of working the Free Syrian Army. Obama and Hillary wanted Assad out so badly they were willing to ignore the alliance between the FSA and ISIS. Those in opposition to Assad needed weapons. There happened to be a plethora of weapons available not all that far away- in Gaddafi’s arsenal in Libya. The broker for those deals was Ambassador Chris Stevens:
But there’s growing evidence that U.S. agents — particularly murdered ambassador Chris Stevens — were at least aware of heavy weapons moving from Libya to jihadist Syrian rebels.
In March 2011 Stevens became the official U.S. liaison to the al-Qaeda-linked Libyan opposition, working directly with Abdelhakim Belhadj of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group — a group that has now disbanded, with some fighters reportedly participating in the attack that took Stevens’ life.
In November 2011 The Telegraph reported that Belhadj, acting as head of the Tripoli Military Council, “met with Free Syrian Army [FSA] leaders in Istanbul and on the border with Turkey” in an effort by the new Libyan government to provide money and weapons to the growing insurgency in Syria.
Weapons were provided to Syrian rebels:
WSJ reports that the State Department presence in Benghazi “provided diplomatic cover” for the previously hidden CIA mission, which involved finding and repurchasing heavy weaponry looted from Libyan government arsenals. These weapons are presumably from Muammar Gaddafi’s stock of about 20,000 portable heat-seeking missiles, the bulk of which were SA-7 surface-to-air anti-aircraft missiles.
What’s odd is that a Libyan ship—which reportedly weighed 400 tons and included SA-7s—docked in southern Turkey on Sept. 6 and its cargo ended up in the hands of Syrian rebels. The man who organized that shipment, Tripoli Military Council head Abdelhakim Belhadj, worked directly with Stevens during the Libyan revolution.
One wonders whether toppling Gaddafi was a goal in itself or merely the vehicle for furnishing Syrian “rebels” (including ISIS) with weapons to topple Syria. The rationale for toppling Gaddafi was to stop the violence against demonstrations. Yet when Iran murdered countless numbers of protesters in the uprising of 2009 Obama had nothing to say and nothing to do. Today the Obama-Clinton legacy in Libya is a failed state.
To speak honestly of ISIS and its true stature is to draw the focus onto what really transpired in Benghazi and the early and foolish support for ISIS and its allies. Barack Obama’s foreign policy is a complete disaster and now he’s desperately trying to run out the clock and hit the bricks before the truth claws its way from the bottom of the well Obama threw it down. Obama nurtured ISIS early on and then in abandoning Iraq provided ISIS a safe and happy home environment. Having piled up this mess, Obama’s plan is to sweep it all under the rug until he’s out of town and let his successor handle it. That’s why he described a “three year plan” for fighting ISIS- three years takes the battle beyond his term and (he believes) out of the realm of his culpability. Obama is largely responsible for the explosive growth of ISIS and is unwilling to engage in an effective means of countering them. Instead, he fabricates lies for the American people.
It’s all about the legacy.
Look for the Obama regime to prosecute those who participated in this whistle-blowing event.
PS: Gen. Flynn has called for Hillary Clinton to be stripped of her security clearance. It’s likely only a matter of time before Flynn is visited by the IRS or is suddenly embroiled in some curious affair.
