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.

Remember when Hillary Clinton said not one classified email was on her private server? I guess is all depends on what the meaning of is, is.
The count is now up to 305 emails and counting with possible classified information that were on Hillary Clinton’s private email server. If this many emails have been flagged as potentially classified are the ones she turned over, imagine what the ones looked like that she deleted and then had her server scrubbed? The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that the Intelligence Community is angry and nervous about Clinton’s conduct.
Scouts honor …
Intelligence officials assigned to review emails from Hillary Clinton’s server for classified information have so far recommended that 305 documents be referred to agencies for further consultation, according to a report filed with a federal judge Monday.
In court papers filed with U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, the State Department updated its progress. It said that as of last Friday, Intelligence Community reviewers had completed a preliminary screening and determined that “out of a sample of approximately 20% of the Clinton emails,” the reviewers have “recommended 305 documents — approximately 5.1% — for referral to their agencies for consultation.”
In the filing, the government stressed that the process involves reviewers conducting “a preliminary screenings step” and determining whether a document should be referred back to an agency for consultation.
The FBI and the OIG’s office is not a partisan Republican political organization. They are the ones conducting this investigation. But Hillary just jokes about this scandal and calls it a right wing conspiracy. Doesn’t that sound familiar? Your excuses are getting lame Hillary.
Hillary Clinton Turns Over Private Email Server to DOJ … Two Emails on Her Private Account Have Been Classified as “Top Secret”
DRIP, DRIP, DRIP … AND AS HER POLL NUMBERS FALL, HILLARY CLINTON TURNS OVER HER EMAIL SERVER TO THE DOJ …
After months of saying that she was not going to hand over her email server that she conducted State Department business on, Hillary Clinton has finally ordered her peeps to turn it over. It was already deemed that from a sampling of emails that were turned over by Clinton, about 10% of them were considered classified. Now we learn from the Intelligence Community Inspector General that some of those emails were actually “TOP SECRET”. Poll after poll from from swing states like Colorado, Iowa, and Virginia have found that the majority of voters in all three states do not find Hillary Clinton honest or trustworthy. Imagine that? The reason why the polls show this trend is because its true.
America, wake the hell up. How on earth can you actually even contemplate handing the keys over to the United States of America to an individual this untrustworthy? Folks, the emails that are being reviewed are the ones she turned over, imagine what the ones looked like that she didn’t? If Barack Obama is the Lying King, Hillary is the Lying Queen.
Just how much danger did Hillary Clinton put this country in danger? As stated at Town Hall, Hillary unequivocally proclaimed that there was “no classified material” whatsoever on her dangerously unsecured private email server, a claim that has been proven false several times over, based on a small sub-sample of the emails she didn’t delete. So there was no classified material, only top secret ones.
But what difference doesn’t it make that I am a lair and untrustworthy, I’s Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton will turn over her private email server and a backup thumb drive to the Justice Department, her spokesman confirmed Tuesday.
The news comes just hours after the Intelligence Community Inspector General told Congress that her email server contained emails that have now been classified “top secret.”
Spokesman Nick Merrill said Clinton “pledged to cooperate with the government’s security inquiry.”
“She directed her team to give her email server that was used during her tenure as Secretary to the Department of Justice, as well as a thumb drive containing copies of her emails already provided to the State Department,” Merrill said in a statement provided to The Hill.
“If there are more questions, we will continue to address them.”
How bad is it when MSNBC questions Hillary’s integrity … ‘No-win situation’ for Hillary Clinton with FBI investigation of private email
As pressure builds on Hillary Clinton to explain her official use of personal email while serving as secretary of state, she faced new complications Tuesday. It was disclosed her top aides are being drawn into a burgeoning federal inquiry and that two emails on her private account have been classified as “Top Secret.”
The inspector general for the Intelligence Community notified senior members of Congress that two of four classified emails discovered on the server Clinton maintained at her New York home contained material deemed to be in one of the highest security classifications – more sensitive than previously known.
The notice came as the State Department inspector general’s office acknowledged that it is reviewing the use of “personal communications hardware and software” by Clinton’s former top aides after requests from Congress.
“We will follow the facts wherever they lead, to include former aides and associates, as appropriate,” said Douglas Welty, a spokesman for the State Department’s inspector general.
State Department spokesman John Kirby referred to the Intelligence Community’s disclosure as a recommendation to “upgrade” the two emails’ classification to “Top Secret.” In a statement, he said that “while we work with the Director of National Intelligence to resolve whether, in fact, this material is actually classified, we are taking steps to ensure the information is protected and stored appropriately.”
At least four top aides have turned over records, including copies of work emails on personal accounts, to the State Department, which is collecting them in response to a subpoena from Capitol Hill, according to the department. Lawmakers have demanded records, including personal emails, from six other aides, but it’s unknown whether they used personal email for work.
EXIT QUESTION: People actually wanted Donald Trump to drop out of the race for things that he has said, where are those same people demanding that Hillary Clinton remove herself immediately as she is the most untrustworthy presidential candidate, maybe ever.
Two Inspectors Generals Ask Justice Department to Open Criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton Email Account
THIS IS HARDLY VIA A RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY, THIS CRIMINAL PROBE IS BEING REQUESTED BY TWO INSPECTOR GENERALS …
The New York Times report Thursday that two inspectors general had made a criminal referral to the Justice Department with regards to Hillary Clinton’s personal email account as Secretary of State and at least four messages from her email that contained classified information. That was before the NY Times decided to scrub their story at the bequest of the Clinton camp. No left-wing media bias there, huh? Who thinks the Times would change a story like this for a GOP presidential candidate?
Hillary Clinton sent at least four messages from her personal email account containing classified information during her time as secretary of state, according to a memo from the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community obtained by the Wall Street Journal.
Following a New York Times report Thursday that two inspectors general had made a criminal referral to the Justice Department, the Journal cited a letter to Congress from the inspector general.The Times later made revisions to the initial story.
Email/Server-gate is going to hound her all the way to the 2016 Presidential election. The media talks about how Trump should withdraw for what he has said about illegals. If that is the case, Hillary Clinton should withdraw immediately for her actions and lack of transparency as Secretary of State under Obama. Speaking of Obama, will his DOJ actually investigate Hillary? If not, why not?
Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.
The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton’s private account contained “hundreds of potentially classified emails.” The memo was written to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management.
It is not clear if any of the information in the emails was marked as classified by the State Department when Mrs. Clinton sent or received them.
JUDICIAL WATCH SAYS THAT THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE USED ORGANIZATIONS OWN DONOR LISTS TO TARGET AUDITS …
Sorry, but the IRS needs to be disbanded and a new way of taxation needs to be devised. Never again should any US citizen ever be the target of such viscous tyranny. Juridical Watch is saying that the IRS used donor lists to target unwarranted audits of those opposed to Barack Obama and his policies. Imagine that. The Founding Fathers never intended for any such government agency to ever have this kind f power and fear over its citizens. We fought a Revolutionary War to rid ourselves from tyranny.
“These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fittonsaid .
Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has obtained documents that show the Internal Revenue Service used donor lists from conservative tax-exempt organizations to determine who it would target for audits.
The IRS produced the documents in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the group.
“These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.
A letter dated September 28, 2010, then-Democrat Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) informs then-IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman: “ I request that you and your agency survey major 501(c)(4), (c)(5) and (c)(6) organizations …” In reply, in a letter dated February 17, 2011, Shulman writes: “In the work plan of the Exempt Organizations Division, we announced that beginning in FY2011, we are increasing our focus on section 501(c)(4), (5) and (6) organizations.”
In 2010, after receiving Baucus’s letter, the IRS considered the issue of auditing donors to 501(c)(4) organizations, alleging that a 35 percent gift tax would be due on donations in excess of $13,000. The documents show that the IRS wanted to cross-check donor lists from 501(c)(4) organizations against gift tax filings and commence audits against taxpayers based on this information.
A gift tax on contributions to 501(c)(4)’s was considered by most to be a dead letter since the IRS had never enforced the rule after the Supreme Court ruled that such taxes violated the First Amendment. The documents show that the IRS had not enforced the gift tax since 1982.
But then, in February 2011, at least five donors of an unnamed organization were audited.
Any for any of you who think the Obama White House and most likely Obama himself was not directly behind this IRS scandal of targeting Obama’s conservative enemies, I bet you believe you can keep your doctor, hospital and healthcare plan under Obamacare too.
