Barack Obama infamously dismissed ISIS as the ‘jayvee team.’
This is the same jayvee team that has commandeered a big chunk of Iraq.
This is the same jayvee team that has raped, beheaded, and mutilated thousands of innocents, regardless of age.
This is the same jayvee team that is scrubbing the Mideast of any vestige of Christianity.
So how are things going against these “punks?” Swimmingly, if you listen to the president’s men. Terrible, if you listen to the guys on the ground. Fifty of our spies were so distraught over the sugar-coated reports coming out of the administration that went public to to pull back the curtain.
Reporters for the liberal Daily Beast said the following:
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.
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.
Sounds like a certain president we know. This guy knows how to pay hardball against conservatives and the American people, but he’s a softie when it comes to dealing with Putins, Castros, Ayatollahs, and Islamic terrorists.
Sadly, it is far too easy to believe that our very own president’s men are cooking the books on intelligence reports to delude the American people into thinking that everything is hunky-dory in the Mideast.
Despite all the faux-rosy reports, only 25% of Americans support our deal with Iran. That’s less than supported Obamacare, as Dan Henninger pointed out in this morning’s Wall Street Journal.
Like Obamacare, the Iran deal is built on deceit. Like so much of Obama’s prescriptions for America and the world, it will be imposed on us without going through proper democratic channels.
