In July, a group of intelligence analysts at the U.S. military’s Central Command accused their bosses of distorting and selectively editing intelligence reports about the fight against ISIS in order to portray that campaign as more successful than it really was. As a result of those complaints, the Pentagon’s inspector general opened an investigation.

Now, the allegations of misconduct have extended to a possible cover-up, with some analysts accusing the senior intelligence officials at Centcom, Maj. Gen. Steven Grove and his civilian deputy, Gregory Ryckman, of deleting emails and files from computer systems before the inspector general could examine them, three individuals familiar with the investigation told The Daily Beast.

Analysts Accuse CENTCOM of Covering Up Cooked ISIS Intelligence

Intelligence agencies and propaganda, what can I say about this that isn't already obvious? Every part of DC is corrupted and clearly they're more interested in spreading lies, and wasting tax dollars, then giving it's citizens reality. Even the investigation is running into walls and I have no hope any truth, or better yet, reform will come from this.

Washington will continue to do whatever it wants and that's that.

So the reason why the US wasn't bombing ISIS was because of faulty data?

The US has been bombing ISIS. This about the higher up's at CENTCOM manipulating the data in their favor.

This intelligence is about propaganda, not bad intelligence sent to combat units abroad. CENTCOM changed intelligence to overstate the success of airstrikes against ISIS, not failures.

And who is the ultimate "boss" in this ? They call him Commander in Chief. This was all staged to make it look like his "sitting on the sidelines" was working .

Do you think that this faulty intelligence was behind Obama's recent statement that Daesh was contained?

I would think those e-mail servers should have been backed up. So at least some of those deleted e-mails may be recoverable.

Which is why the US thought it was soooo much more successful at controlling it's ISIS child that it really is.

However

You can't hide the truth forever you know

ISIS explodes 4400% under Obama

If it weren't for the fact that ISIS rape, murder, pillage of innocent people - Muslims, gays, Christians, Yazidis, pretty much anyone who even looks at them funny, I'd be impressed by that above result

Well, yes but really no. Is Obama in charge of CENTCOM? Is he micromanaging it? Probably not. He is given reports from there though, reports that are said to be falsified.

From the article,



Obama himself weighing in on Sunday about the allegations of doctored intelligence.

“I don’t know what we’ll discover with respect to what was going on in CENTCOM,” Obama said, responding to a report about the investigation in The New York Times. “What I do know is my expectation—which is the highest fidelity to facts, data, the truth.”


Typical politician response but CENTCOM and it's leadership will still be around long after Obama is gone and you can start blaming the new guy.

Most definitely. The intel that leaves CENTCOM goes through these men first. That's why this is such a big deal, so big in fact, that 50 analysts were so fed up they jumped the chain of command and went to the Pentagon inspector general.

Exactly. Did CENTCOM not care that they weren't the only ones reporting on IS in Syria & Iraq? Well I guess they just have so much faith in their propaganda that they didn't care.

Interesting claims. Do we know exactly where this is claimed to have happened? Mine was actually with CENTCOM, though not in DC, some time back. I'll have to see what he thinks about this story. I do know that analysts don't always agree with those higher up, so anything is possible. I don't know if he's still in tough with anyone there or not. These days, I'd believe such claims, though, and am sure he would as well. A lot has changed in the military in recent years.

Well let's not get too crazy and say such things but it is nice to have more than one side to a story. Having more than one side hurts the propaganda machine.
