Intel Analysts: We Were Forced Out for Telling the Truth About Obama’s ISIS War, by Shane Harris and Nancy A. Youssef.
Two senior intelligence analysts at U.S. Central Command say the military has forced them out of their jobs because of their skeptical reporting on U.S.-backed rebel groups in Syria …. It’s the first known instance of possible reprisals against CENTCOM personnel after analysts accused their bosses of manipulating intelligence reports about the U.S.-led campaign against ISIS in order to paint a rosier picture of progress in the war.
Remember the huge coverage of battles over intelligence before the Iraq War in 2003, the suicide, the blame, the “Bush lied, people died”? Now imagine the outcry if the recent shenanigans had been committed by a Republican administration.
