Intelligence Analysts Accuse CENTCOM of Covering Up Cooked ISIS Intel … The Obama Policy on ISIS is a Disaster!!! Did WH Pressue to Ease Off on ISIS Intel?
WHO IS THE REAL JV, OBAMA OR ISIS? DID THE WHITE HOUSE PRESSURE ANALYSTS TO EASE OFF ON NEGATIVE ASSESSMENT OF ISIS?
SORRY, BUT NOTHING SHOULD SHOCK US ANYMORE AS TO WHAT COMES FROM THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE … From The Daily Beast comes the following troubling new story … Allegations are mounting that senior intelligence officials at Central Command not only skewed findings on the ISIS war to please D.C., but tried to hide what they did. But weren’t we just told by White House Spox Josh Earnest that Barack Obama will spend the next year with “a clear eyed assessment of his view of what’s happening” when it comes to dealing with ISIS? Let’s be serious folks, Barack Obama has never taken the threat of ISIS seriously. It is Obama who called them the JV. Josh Ernest has claimed that Obama is not afraid of receiving bad news. Really? One might add the caveat of receiving, listening and acting upon bad news are three completely separate things. Why does plausible deniability come to mind here with this story with regards to Barack Obama?
So where did the coverup and cooking of ISIS intel start and were they ordered to do so? Fox News was told by a source close to the CENTCOM analysts that the pressure on them included at least two emails saying they needed to “cut it out” and “toe the line.”
Analysts at U.S. Central Command were pressured to ease off negative assessments about the Islamic State threat and were even told in an email to “cut it out,” Fox News has learned – as an investigation expands into whether intelligence reports were altered to present a more positive picture.
Those emails, among others, are now in the possession of the Pentagon inspector general. The IG’s probe is expanding into whether intelligence assessments were changed to give a more positive picture of the anti-ISIS campaign.
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.
One U.S. official said the alleged activity could amount to obstruction and interference with the inspector general’s investigation, which began last summer. He noted that files relevant to the investigation began to disappear from CENTCOM computers after the Pentagon watchdog’s staff began their work.
Two sources said that investigators are piecing together a trail of emails and reports to find out what may have been deleted, as well as what officials outside CENTCOM knew about potential manipulation of intelligence.
The analysts themselves have taken steps to preserve material that could be used as evidence, these people said.
All three individuals spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.
Food for thought from Town Hall.com:
Further, Earnest argued Obama will spend the next year with “a clear eyed assessment of his view of what’s happening” when it comes to dealing with ISIS.
There are two major problems with these claims and assertions. First, last week investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson revealed that her sources, who have worked in the White House, have told her Obama is flat out rejecting intelligence about Islamic groups he doesn’t consider terrorists.
“I have talked to people who have worked in the Obama administration who firmly believe he has made up his mind, I would say closed his mind, they say, to the intelligence they try to bring him about various groups he does not consider terrorists even if they’re on the U.S. list of designated terrorists,” Attkisson said during an interview with Newsmax. “I don’t know the reasoning for it I’ve only been told by those who have allegedly attempted to present him or been in the circle that has attempted to present him with certain intelligence that they said he doesn’t want it, he said he doesn’t want it or he won’t read it in some instances.”
Second, we’ve been hearing for months about the manipulation and downgrading of ISIS intelligence to make the situation in Iraq and Syria look better before being presented to Obama in the Oval Office.

FBI DIRECTION COMPLETELY CONTRADICTS BARACK OBAMA LIES … THE US CANNOT VET SYRIAN REFUGEES!!!
FBI Director James Comey testified earlier this week during a House Committee on a Homeland Security hearing on Wednesday that the federal government DOES NOT have the ability to conduct thorough background checks on all of the 10,000 Syrian refugees that the Obama administration says will be allowed to come to the United States. As an aside, the 10,000 refugees is just the tip of the iceberg of the 100,000 that Obama wants to lets waltz into the United States.
“You can only query what you’ve collected. And with respect with Iraqi databases, we had far more because of our country’s work there for a decade. This is a different situation.”
Who are you going to believe regarding the vetting process and homeland security, the FBI or a known liar like Barack Obama and his cronies in the DOJ?
On 21 October 2015, FBI director James Comey said during a House Committee on a Homeland Security hearing on Wednesday that the federal government does NOT have the ability to conduct thorough background checks on all of the 10,000 Syrian refugees that the Obama administration says will be allowed to come to the United States.
“We can only query against that which we have collected,” Comey said in response to a line of questioning from Mississippi Representative Bennie Thompson.
“And so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record on that person.”

Rasmussen Reports: Voters Say to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Democrats … Yes, We Are at War with Radical Islam
BARACK OBAMA, HILLARY CLINTON AND DEMOCRATS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE TERRORISM ISSUE WITH WE THE PEOPLE …
It would appear that “We the People” are fed up with Obama, Clinton and Democrats telling them that they are racists, bigots and Islamophobes when it comes to the war on terror against radical Islam. According to a recent Rasmussen Report poll, 60% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States is at war with radical Islamic terrorism and just 24% share the president’s position and disagree. This is rather interesting heading into a presidential election in 2016 as Obama and Democrats refuse to use the term “radical Islam” for fear of hurting the feelings of Muslims. But as BPR opines, its not just Republicans voters who feel this way, 56% of Democrats believe America is at war with radical Islamic terrorism and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
ISIS and terrorism under Obama isn’t going away any time soon as Barack Obama refuses to take the issue seriously which means that this will be a huge campaign issue in 2016 and the Democrats are not even close to being on the right side of the issue with the American people.
President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other senior Democrats refuse to say America is at war with “radical Islamic terrorism” for fear of insulting all Muslims, but voters beg to disagree.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 60% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States is at war with radical Islamic terrorism. Just 24% share the president’s position and disagree. Sixteen percent (16%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Even 56% of Democrats believe America is at war with radical Islamic terrorism, a view shared by 70% of Republicans and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
A staggering 92% of all voters now regard radical Islamic terrorism as a serious threat to the United States. This includes 73% who say it is a Very Serious one, up 23 points from 50% in October of last year.
Voters are also more reluctant now to agree with Obama that the radical Islamic State group (ISIS) which masterminded the massacres in Paris last weekend is not a reflection of Islam itself. A plurality (46%) still thinks the president is right when he says ISIS does not represent true Islamic beliefs. But that’s down noticeably from 58% who felt that way in February after the president gave a speech equating the atrocities committed by ISIS with past sins of Christianity. Thirty-five percent (35%) now believe ISIS does represent Islamic beliefs. One-in-five voters (19%) are not sure.

Bloomberg Poll: Most Americans Oppose Syrian Refugee Resettlement, NBC Poll Supports More Troops to Fight ISIS … Obama on the Wrong Side of the American People Once Again
Bloomberg released a poll on Wednesday that voices the opinion of the national attitudes on America’s commitment to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees following the terror attacks in France and ISIS’s statements that they will infiltrate the Syrian refugees to America. But once again, the ideologue, dense, obtuse and and incompetent Barack Obama says, the hell with the facts and the American people, we are going forward.
One would almost think that he is trying to put America at risk. Barack Obama states that he was going to fundamentally transform America if elected, guess what .. he is doing just that. Say goodbye to what you used to call America.
Most Americans want the U.S. to stop letting in Syrian refugees amid fears of terrorist infiltrations after the Paris attacks, siding with Republican presidential candidates, governors, and lawmakers who want to freeze the Obama administration’s resettlement program.
The findings are part of a Bloomberg Politics national poll released Wednesday that also shows the nation divided on whether to send U.S. troops to Iraq and Syria to fight the Islamic State, an idea President Barack Obama opposes, and whether the U.S. government is doing enough to protect the homeland from a comparable attack.
Fifty-three percent of U.S. adults in the survey, conducted in the days immediately following the attacks, say the nation should not continue a program to resettle up to 10,000 Syrian refugees. Just 28 percent would keep the program with the screening process as it now exists, while 11 percent said they would favor a limited program to accept only Syrian Christians while excluding Muslims, a proposal Obama has dismissed as “shameful” and un-American.
REALLY, ITS UN-AMERICAN TO WANT TO PROTECT AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FROM OUTSIDE DANGERS? Barack Obama might want to check out his presidential oath of office and that he is beholden to the American people, not refugees. I must have missed the part of the US Constitution where it says we have to put ourselves at risk for refugees from a region of the world that chants, death to America. Did Obama have his fingers crossed when he took the oath?
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
And even though The Bloomberg poll is mixed on sending ground troops, a new NBC poll shows that Americans are heavily in favor of sending more troops to fight ISIS. An amazing 70% believe that the US and its allies are losing the war against ISIS. Way to go Barack Obama. You are an inept and total failure. The NBC poll also has a majority of Americans against bring Syrian refugees to the United States.
Roughly two-thirds of the country (65 percent) want more troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria to combat IS, which took responsibility for the attacks in Paris, France, last week that killed more than 120 people. When broken down by political party, a majority of Republicans, Democrats, and two-thirds of independents agree on sending more troops to combat the terrorist group.
President Obama had previously said that putting troops on the ground would be a mistake and stood by his current strategy on fighting IS.
Since the spring a majority of Americans, 53 percent, feel the the United State government is not doing enough to eradicate the threat of terrorism, which is up from 37 percent in April. Meet the Press Daily’s Chuck Todd said that the number was not surprising given the amount of coverage of the recent Paris terrorist attacks.
YES HE IS AND EVEN MORE INSANE AND THANKS TO THOSE WHO VOTED FOR THIS DANGEROUS, LYING PRESIDENT FOR A SECOND TIME …
Following the Paris terror attacks and the threats by ISIS to infiltrate as Syrian refugees, Barack Obama plans to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees in 2016 and we won’t have a clue as to who they are. Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump quested the mental soundness of President Obama plans by saying, What’s our president doing? Is he insane?”
Billionaire businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump is questioning the mental soundness of President Obama in light of the administration’s plans to allow Syrian refugees into the United States.
“Refugees are pouring into our great country from Syria. We don’t even know who they are. They could be [Islamic State]. They could be anybody. What’s our president doing? Is he insane?” Mr. Trump said in a short video posted to social media on Tuesday.
This president forgot a long time ago what his oath of office meant.
CNN’s Christine Amanpour Gives Brutal Review of Obama’s Islamic State Claims at G-20 Summit … She Says, “ISIS is not Contained”
YOU KNOW ITS BAD WHEN CNN’s CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR SAYS BARACK OBAMA IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH …
Following Barack Obama’s speech at the G-20 Summit in Turkey and defensive Q&A on ISIS, many have criticized his comments and his strategy on ISIS. However, no one could have seen this coming. Just how bad has Barack Obama been with his plan to defeat ISIS, if he even has one? Even uber-leftist Christine Amanpour criticized Barack Obama for his comment that his (Obama’s) strategy on ISIS was working. She then went on to same that it is not true that ISIS is contained. Did one of the most liberal MSM individuals just call Barack Obama a liar? But what should we expect from the Liar in Chief who told us that with Obamacare, you can keep your healthcare plan and doctor if you like them.
Now he wants you to believe that ISIS is contained and his plan is working, REALLY?
“If anybody was expecting to hear in the passion and eloquence and speech patterns of President Obama a tipping point, they did not hear that today,” Amanpour said, adding that he was “defensive” when pressed on American leadership.
In dismissing critics of his Islamic State strategy, Amanpour said Obama is also dismissing the “very palpable fear among citizens” in France, Britain and the United States that terrorists could target their cities next.
“He said something that is pretty incredible, according to many of the military experts here and around the world who I have spoken to — that our strategy is working,” she added.
Pushing back against the assertion, Amanpour argued only the ground troops strategy has worked to battle the Islamic State. She pointed to operations to reclaim territory from the terrorist group in Sinjar, Kobane and Tikrit as evidence of that.
“He’s saying that ISIS is contained. This is also not actually true,” she said. “ISIS is not contained because ISIS attacked a Russian plane, attacked Beirut” and now attacked Paris.
CNN Reporter Jim Acosta Asks Barack Obama: “Why Can’t We Take Out These Bastards?” … Listen To Obama’s Defensive Answer
FROM THE FAILURE IN CHIEF, LISTEN TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA MORE DEFENSIVE AND UPSET WITH REPORTERS QUESTIONS THAN WITH ISIS …
How dare the media hold Emperor Barack Obama accountable for his failed policies, who do they think they are? Following Obama’s pathetic ISIS speech at the G-20 Summit in Turkey, the King held court and answered questions from the minions. Many have been critical of Obama’s policies is dealing with ISIS, but is is startling that the liberal media is now taking the lead and posing some glaring questions to Obama. CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Barack Obama the question that pretty much all Americans have wanted to ask, “Why Can’t We Take Out These Bastards?”
“Jim, I just spent the last three questions answering that very question, so I don’t know what more you want me to add. I think I’ve described very specifically what our strategy is, and I’ve described very specifically why we do not pursue some of the other strategies that have been suggested.”
In response to Acosta’s question, Obama reiterated that the U.S. military could retake territory from the Islamic State, but the result would be occupation. An occupation, huh? Is this what this fool really thinks? So we are not going to destroy this festering cancer called ISIS because this liberal coward this it will be an occupation? Obama went on to say, “So we are going to continue to pursue the strategy that has the best chance of working, even though it does not offer the satisfaction, I guess, of a neat headline or an immediate resolution.” OBAMA, WHAT PART DON’T YOU GET THAT YOUR STRATEGY IS FAILING!!!
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta took an unusually blunt approach Monday in questioning President Barack Obama about why the United States has not destroyed the Islamic State, the militant group also known as ISIS.
“A lot of Americans have this frustration that they see the United States has the greatest military in the world, it has the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on ISIS,” Acosta said. “I guess the question is, and if you’ll forgive the language, but why can’t we take out these bastards?”
Obama, who was speaking in Antalya, Turkey, at the G-20 summit, responded that he had “just spent the last three questions answering that very question.”
Earlier Monday, Obama had defended the U.S. strategy against the Islamic State, which has largely focused on airstrikes, amid calls for deploying a large number of ground troops in response to the Paris terrorist attacks. Obama said a ground invasion would be a “mistake” because it would require using U.S. troops to occupy Iraqi and Syrian cities indefinitely.

Barack Obama Arrives Late for ‘Moment of Silence’ for Paris Attacks at the G-20 Conference in Turkey
OBAMA PROBABLY HAD MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO, LIKE FINISHING HIS ROUND OF GOLF OR HIS MEAL …
The optics are typical of this president. On Sunday at the G-20 conference in Turkey, Barack Obama showed up late on a moment of silence being held by world leaders to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris. I am certain he will find someone to blame for his being late to this function. Had it been Obama providing an apology to the conference for the United States being responsible for the rise of ISIS and terrorism, I am certain he would have been on time.
President Obama walked in late Sunday on a moment of silence being held by world leaders in Turkey to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris.
Reporters traveling with the president said Mr. Obama had not yet arrived when other world leaders at the G-20 conference in Turkey began their silent observance around a large conference table.
Mr. Obama walked in after they had begun, and took his place next to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
FROM BARACK OBAMA, THE IDIOT AND LIAR IN CHIEF WHO CLAIMS ISIS WAS THE JV …
Take a good look at the greatest failure that the United States has ever had the misfortune to be elected President of the United States. Barack Obama is a dangerous, EPIC FAILURE!!! Earlier in the day before the Paris, France radical Islamist terror attack, in an interview with ABC News Democrat media lapdog George Stephanopoulos Barack Obama stated that ISIS was “contained”. Well this might be the worst timed interview and one of the biggest lies from Obama’s lips. Oh yes Mr. President, ISIS is contained and not gaining strength, tell that to the 129 innocent people killed in France on Friday and to those aboard the Russian airplane that was blown out of the sky last week by what all accounts was most likely a bomb of which ISIS has claimed responsibility.
ISIS contained, are you kidding me? Obama has been an complete failure when it comes to ISIS and has just kicked the can down the road to the next president. ISIS is not gaining strength … This brought to you by the liar who told the American people, If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. This from the president who cannot even utter the words, radical Islam.
Critics are lashing out at President Obama in the wake of the attacks in Paris on Friday for remarks he made to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos a day earlier in which he said that ISIS was “contained.”
“From the start, our goal has been first to contain, and we have contained them,” Obama told ABC on Thursday. “They have not gained ground in Iraq. And in Syria it — they’ll come in, they’ll leave. But you don’t see this systematic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
The comment came just hours before the announcement of a U.S. airstrike in Syria that had targeted ‘Jihadi John.’ But the mainly symbolic victory was cut short following the attacks in Paris on Friday in which at least 127 people were killed.
EPIC FAIL: Barack Obama Flip-Flops on Troop Drawdown in Afghanistan as the Taliban & Al-Qaeda Gain Strength
A COMPLETE ADMISSION THAT THE OBAMA FOREIGN POLICY IN AFGHANISTAN HAS BEEN A DISASTER.
Barack Obama kicks the can down the road for the nest president to deal with his failed policies …
Imagine that, Barack Hussein Obama is flip-flopping on his troop drawdown in Afghanistan. After having pulled out a majority of US forces in Afghanistan prematurely and all but losing any gains that had been previously made, Obama now finds Afghanistan in complete turmoil. Day by day gains are made by the terrorist Islamists Al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Obama did not win any war in Afghanistan by pulling all the US troops out, he abandoned the war. Now he has a major headache and PR embarrassment on his hands. This almost reminds me of the Obamacare provisions that really stick it to Americans and businesses but do not take affect until after Obama is out of office. How convenient. Obama is just looking to run out the clock on his presidency and not have Afghanistan fall to the Taliban and terrorists before that takes place. Oh, and let’s not forget Obama’s JV terrorist group, ISIS.
With pressure building on the White House to slow or completely halt the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, senior officials said that President Obama appears increasingly willing to keep a force there large enough to carry on the hunt for Al Qaeda and Islamic State militants.
The insurgents are now spread through more of Afghanistan than at any point since 2001, according to the United Nations, and last month they seized the city of Kunduz with only a few hundred fighters. At the same time, Al Qaeda operatives are still finding havens in the mountains of Afghanistan, and the Islamic State has gained a toehold by recruiting disaffected Taliban, opening a treacherous new chapter in the war.
President Barack Obama will announce Thursday that U.S. forces will remain in Afghanistan at their current levels throughout much of 2016, marking yet another delay in the administration’s plans for completing its withdrawal from the 14-year conflict.
The decision to maintain 9,800 troops in Afghanistan until nearly the end of Obama’s time in office comes after months of discussions with Afghanistan’s president, Ashraf Ghani, and the nation’s CEO, Abdullah Abdullah, senior administration officials said Wednesday night. Obama also consulted with U.S. military commanders on the ground in Afghanistan as well as his entire national security team, officials added.
According to the new White House plan, the number of U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan would drop to 5,500 by early 2017, as Obama prepares to leave office. At that point, U.S. forces would be based in the Afghan capital of Kabul, as well as in military installations in Bagram, Jalalabad and Kandahar.
