Skip to comments.Congress Concluded That CENTCOM Leadership Has Been Manipulating ISIS Intelligence
Posted on 08/13/2016 8:01:18 AM PDT by darkwing104
A House joint task force (JTF) investigating the manipulation of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) intelligence reports released its preliminary findings this week. Their report detailed persistent problems in 2014 to 2015 intelligence information being doctored to paint a rosier picture both of the White Houses war against the Islamic State and the analysis of U.S. efforts to train forces to combat the terrorist organization. More than 50 intelligence analysts at CENTCOM are concerned that important elements of their reports had been manipulated by higher-ranking officials to fool the American public with claims that the Obama Administration had contained and was eliminating ISIS. The JTF will continue to research the allegations of CENTCOM intelligence analysts.
The Defense Department inspector general will also continue to investigate the manipulation of Intelligence reports by CENTCOM leadership while at the same time looking for more whistle-blowers. The IG was alerted by the same CENTCOM intelligence analysts who presented their concerns to Congress. It has been suggested that the reports were manipulated at the behest of White House officials who didnt want Obama to hear bad news about his policy concerning the fight against ISIS. It has also been suggested that as long as the American Media isnt on the ground reporting actual events, no-one will know the bad news. Of course, that assumes that the media would be willing to present stories unfriendly to the Administration; for example, that existing CENTCOM intelligence reports have been rewritten to present the notion that Obamas fairy tale policy is winning the war against the terror group.
The 17-page House report does not suggest that the Obama Administration pressured the Pentagon or CENTCOM to manipulate intelligence as some critics had charged. Instead, blame was placed on military leadership.

It’s about time we see heads roll over some of this stuff. Instead congress just rolls over and matters get worse.
Facts go into the Obama Admin and Manure comes out
Arming ISIS was a bipartisan effort.
McCain, Graham and Rubio were there to assist.
US Army Brig General (ret) Tony Tata did not have any difficulties connecting the WH with the cooked intelligence data:
Just a point of order. Did I make up the fact that this was released in a report of the DOD IG? Then these guys take credit? Where have they been. I think this is CYA.
There also is separate Department of Defense Inspector General investigation into the claims which is ongoing and could release its findings as early as this fall, one official said. The DoD IG report could make recommendations that CENTCOM must act on.
I don't think anybody would disagree
Explains why HilLiary had top secret documents on her kitchen server; she was just doing some homework by helping comrades to cut and paste stuff...
So What? Our toothless paper tiger House of Representatives will accomplish NOTHING! Waste of time.
So much for the GOP majority.
CENTCOM "Leadership" is being manipulated by ISIS leaders in the 0bama regime.
Once upon a time this great Country had a military free of blatant political manipulation.
