This is the same story as Benghazi
This is the same story as Benghazi. Except this time the intel was being cooked before the attack.
Obama needed to avoid responsibility so pressure was applied downward to produce the correct conclusions. With Benghazi, it happened after the fact. Here it was taking place beforehand since the administration needed to sell the idea that it was beating ISIS.
Now there's an investigation. Expect a few fall guys to be delivered for it, but the cover-up orders were coming from the White House.
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.
Has anyone checked Sandy Berger's socks? But it seems like servers are the new socks. It would be funny if Obama and Hillary were both undone by emails.
In interviews, several individuals have described Centcom as having a “toxic climate,” in which Grove in particular created an expectation: Those who toe the official, upbeat line about the fight against ISIS are rewarded, while those who don’t are marginalized.
“The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official told The Daily Beast.
Don't worry. Obama just found out about it from the news and hopes there's a full and thorough investigation followed by everything in the investigation being deleted off the servers.
