Make no mistake: the military didn’t do this to fool the boss. No. The Pentagon did this because it was ordered to by the Obama administration — in order to give some weight to his mind-boggling lie that ISIS was a “junior varsity” player. Higher-ups in the Obama administration altered the intel — just like Benghazi.

Close to half of the Pentagon analysts are telling the truth about Obama’s big ISIS lie, and the enemedia hardly reports on it.

“Over 40% of the analysts at CENTCOM feel there are problems with analytic integrity and CENTCOM processes,” Nunes said during the hearing. “Is it appropriate that we wait 18 months or longer for the inspector general report before we even begin to rectify these problems?”

“The survey itself represents just a sampling of the 16,000-plus members that we have in this enterprise,” he said, adding that there are reporting mechanisms to catch problems.

But Nunes then asked, “Would you consider, though, the 40% to be unusual? Unusually high or is this normal?”

Stewart answered, “I would consider that unusually high.”

This treason was policy — it mirrors what the Democrats did during the Vietnam war.

Fallout over possible cover-up at CENTCOM: VIDEO

CENTCOM files and emails on intel scandal deleted
By Rick Moran, The American Thinker, February 26, 2016:

Rep. Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, says that files and emails at Central Command headquarters that dealt with intel analysis of ISIS were deleted.  CENTCOM is currently embroiled in a scandal involving superior officers skewing the intelligence provided by analysts.  Forty percent of analysts at headquarters claim that officers altered intel to make it appear that the Obama administration was having more success in fighting ISIS than was actually the case.

Washington Post:

A whistleblower whose position was not disclosed told the committee that material was deleted, according to a committee staff member who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly disclose the information.

Navy Cmdr. Kyle Raines, a spokesman for CENTCOM, said the combatant command was fully cooperating with the Defense Department inspector general’s probe into the allegations.

“While it would be inappropriate to discuss the details of that investigation, I can tell you that as a matter of CENTCOM policy, all senior leader emails are kept in storage for record-keeping purposes, so such records cannot be deleted,” Raines said. It’s unclear if emails written by lower-level staff were also maintained.

Nunes, R-Calif., also said the Office of the Director of National Intelligence briefed the committee on a survey indicating that more than 40 percent of Central Command analysts believe there are problems with the integrity of the intelligence analyses and process.

“To me, it seems like 40 percent of analysts who are concerned at CENTCOM — that’s just something that can’t be ignored,” Nunes said.

A senior intelligence official said that each year the DNI conducts a survey at all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies to gain feedback on the integrity, standards and objectivity of the process used to analyze intelligence. In the most recent survey, conducted between August and October of last year, approximately 120 employees from CENTCOM responded to the survey. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to disclose details of the internal survey.

A report on the survey issued in December 2015 indicated that 40 percent of those who responded at CENTCOM answered “yes” to the question: “During the past year, do you believe that anyone attempted to distort or suppress analysis on which you were working in the face of persuasive evidence?”

Asked whether he considered 40 percent an unusually high number, Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told the committee that he did.

The question for Congress is, were senior commanders who tried to manipulate the intelligence taking orders from the White House?  A direct link will be hard to find, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.  It could be that some of these officers were playing headquarters games, giving their superiors in Washington what they thought they wanted.  It wouldn’t be the first time that happened.

But if that’s what happened, it should be fairly easy to follow the chain of intelligence to see where the alterations occurred and under whose authority.  Now that the intel committee has discovered deleted files and emails, that may make it harder to track.

    Pamela, thank you so much for exposing these traitorous actions of the current administration. Now if only our do nothing Congress would do something about it. Go Trump!

  • Fred

    Impeach Obama!

  • knight

    Hope there are some goodies that make copies before destroying.

    The heads of these departments who order the destruction of information, need life imprissionment in such a position.

    If the person did make copies, time for one to dress in Burqu, plastic gloves, go into computer cafe and post material

    Well, when you have a Muslim Brotherhood member residing in the Oval Office; treason or espionage is the only possible result. What should outrage every American, their Congressional members refuse to do what must be done. So, all we can do is pray that Obama does not suspend November’s election and or refuse to leave office on 1/20/17.

    I know Pam has her issues with Trump, but Trump as the nominee will never allow Obama to supersede the electoral process. He will also once sworn-in indict, prosecute and ensure sentences for Obama and Hillary and many others are carried out. Truth be told, no other candidate on the Republican side will do this, nobody.

    The lame stream media does not deserve patronage of the average citizen. Lies lame stream media crank out along with misinformation and absurdities from the democrat administration will be looked at by history, which future historians totally baffled as to why lies were considered an acceptable feature on the political landscape. Why is there no legal or administrative way to force a public inquiry into actions of an elected government in America?

  • scocope

    This is similar to the supply Sergeant ordering his subordinates to bury excess inventory in a big hole prior to inspection; it’s wastefull, it’s wrong, but there’s hell to pay if it’s not done.

    The big question that should be asked is why was Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans left to die in Benghazi ?
    Christ Stevens was sent to Benghazi on a so called ” fact finding ” road trip on orders from Hillary Clinton herself. No one, and I mean no one, in their right mind would send any American on a road trip on the anniversary date of 9-11 when every Muslim/Islamic crackpot was on the hunt for an American to kill to celebrate it.
    Why was Chris Stevens set up, and what was discussed over dinner between Chris Stevens and the ” Turk ” just one hour before the attacks??
    Gun/weapons/missile running to terrorists through Turkey? Did Chris Stevens know too much to be left alive?
    This whole thing wreaks of high crimes and treason on the part of Hillary Clinton and Obama.
    Both Obama and Hillary Clinton and all those involved should be put on trial for high crimes, murder, and treason.
    Just my 2 cents worth.
