Intelligence agents blow their whistles on Obama’s phony reports and fake news

The latest incident involving President Donald Trump and the news media occurred this week when a federal judge allowed a lawsuit against Trump to go forward. The lawsuit involved three complainants who claimed they were assaulted by Trump supporters at a campaign rally. While Trump’s lawyers said the alleged assault had nothing to do with what the victorious Trump said at the rally, federal court Judge David Hale said the case should go forward and that President Trump’s message may have contributed to the assaults on the protesters. Of course, in covering this latest anti-Trump story, the major news media outlets failed to mention that Judge Hale is a life-long Democrat who was appointed to the bench by President Barack Obama in 2014 with the blessings of Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nevada. However, what these same news outlets omitted to thoroughly cover was the ongoing Obama administration dishonesty such as Obama’s politicized use of intelligence agencies:

There were a number of U.S. intelligence officers during the fierce presidential race who blew the whistle on President Barack Obama’s  playing loose and fancy free with his reports on  his “war on extremism” that should have not only outraged reporters and news editors, but opened the door to the appointment of a special prosecutor.

Unfortunately, since it was a Democratic president with a leftist political philosophy and a “blame America first” mentality, the nation’s purveyors of information ignored the story or relegated the reports to the back pages of newspapers. And to this day, the “Magnificent 50” intelligence analysts have not seen their loyalty to the U.S. Constitution and to the American people even acknowledged.

The more than four dozen U.S. intelligence analysts formally filed complaints that their honest intelligence evaluations regarding the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and al-Qaida’s branch Al Nusra Front in Syria were altered by superiors to prop up President Barack Obama’s false proclamations that he and his “national security team” are winning the war.

As previously reported in the Conservative Base, Fox News’ Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge was informed by her anonymous but reliable source, who is an associate of the CENTCOM intelligence analysts, that they were instructed to avoid negative reports. In fact, they received two emails saying the analysts needed to “cut it out” and “toe the line,” when submitting reports. 

In an earlier report published by the Conservative Base, it was reported that some of the intelligence community’s top analysts informed the Pentagon’s official watchdog that their reports have been systematically edited to backup President Obama’s — and his national security team’s — false narrative in which they claimed the air campaign against ISIS is more successful than it actually is.

An example of this alleged fraud was the sworn testimony of General Lloyd Austin, commander of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM). Gen. Austin testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee that a multi-million dollar military program that was supposed to train a large number of Syrian rebels — about 1,000 was the number circulated by the White House — to fight ISIS resulted in producing an embarrassing  four or five anti-ISIS fighters for front lines.   

According to the general’s testimony, American taxpayers are pouring an estimated $9 million per day on the war against ISIS since August 2014 and we have only Obama’s almost constant self-congratulations and amateur comedy act poking fun at those who point out the abysmal results of his foreign policy in the Middle East.

Two of the intelligence analysts assigned to the U.S. Central Command, or CENTCOM, wrote an official complaint and sent it to the Defense Department’s inspector general in July accusing their superiors of doctoring up their reports to make it appear that the Obama administration is winning against ISIS. Since then, more than 50 analysts given their own complaints in the hopes that someone in the U.S. government takes action. Some of those 50 analysts are officially employed by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and others are contractors.

Their complaints accuse their superiors that at times key elements contained in their intelligence reports were removed. They said that in the end an intelligence assessment did not reflect the analysts’ conclusions.

Unfortunately, the reports by Fox News’ Catherine Herridge, the Conservative Base and other news and commentary publications aren’t the whole story of deception and fraud. The complaints go far beyond alleged altering of reports. Some of the complaints have to do with accusations that some senior leaders at CENTCOM created an unprofessional and hostile work environment.

One source who is very familiar with the contents of one of the written complaints sent to the inspector general claims that the word “Stalinist” was used to describe officials overseeing CENTCOM’s intelligence analysis. “Although the analysts should be praised for not only coming forward as whistleblowers, but they should also be congratulated for blowing the whistle in a mature and constructive manner. This is one of the worst allegations of government corruption I’ve heard about since the days of Richard M. Nixon and Watergate,” said former military intelligence operative and police detective unit commander Franklyn Lovell, Jr.

“There’s only one problem: the reporters in the early 1970s despised Nixon and were more than happy to bash him, but the news media today loves Obama and although they will publish or air negative stories about him, they don’t want to see him fail. In fact, I will bet that these reporters already wrote their ‘comeback kid’ news stories in anticipation that nothing will come of any of the scandals in the Obama administration,” said Lovell.
