House probe: Central Command reports skewed intel on ISIS fight

by  |  published on August 11, 2016

Intelligence reports produced by U.S. Central Command that tracked the Islamic State’s 2014-15 rise in Iraq and Syria were skewed to present a rosier picture of the situation on the ground, according to a bombshell report released Thursday by a House Republican task force.

The task force investigated a Defense Department whistleblower’s allegations that higher-ups manipulated analysts’ findings to make the campaign against ISIS appear more successful to the American public.

The report concluded that intelligence reports from Central Command were, in fact, “inconsistent with the judgments of many senior, career analysts.”

Further, the report found, “these products also consistently described U.S. actions in a more positive light than other assessments from the [intelligence community] and were typically more optimistic than actual events warranted.”

Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., who was involved in the House report, said Thursday the data was clearly “manipulated.”

    Oh Gosh, a Skewed report out of our honest government. That could never happen, like it never happened in Viet Nam and other places. The public would skin our politically elect fi they actually knew the truth. The bigger and longer the lie is told the more believable it becomes. We killed each NVA at least 10 times over in VN.

    Isn’t the word “skewed”, a gross substitution for the word, “lying”?
    Leave it to the Most Transparent Administration to come up with fancy words and misleading statements…
    Also, they use the word “Conspiracy Theory”, when caught, grossly lying or covering up, like the Vanquish Emails or Benghazi’s HillaryGates.

    Semper fi.!
