This is a really big deal. The latest government corruption is in our Pentagon. Officials in CENTCOM have been deleting files and emails to cover up their falsified accounts in the war on ISIS. They have been attempting to make the US look far more effective than it has been.
Since last summer, the Pentagon’s inspector general has been investigating allegations that the intelligence on ISIS had been manipulated. Central Command, which oversees U.S. Department of Defense operations in the Middle East, altered assessments of the campaign against ISIS to make it appear as though the United States and Western partners were making more progress than they really were, according to claims from two whistleblowers assigned to CENTCOM and 50 other spies.
We also supported the terrorists in Syria according to the information they provided.
In November, Barack Obama vowed during a presser in Malaysia to “get to the bottom” of it.
“One of the things I insisted on the day I walked into the Oval Office was that I don’t want intelligence shaded by politics,” he told reporters at a news conference in Malaysia, wrapping up a nine-day East Asia trip. I don’t want it shaded by the desire to tell a feel-good story.”
You can take that to the bank.
