A House investigation has confirmed that the military’s top brass were a little too addicted to happy talk in the war against ISIS:
A House Republican task force has found that officials from the U.S. military’s Central Command altered intelligence reports to portray the U.S. fight against ISIS and al Qaeda in a more positive light than lower-level analysts believed was warranted by the facts on the ground, three officials familiar with the task force’s findings told The Daily Beast. A roughly 10-page report on the controversy is expected to be released by the end of next week, two officials said.
Only ten pages? That’s the length of the executive summary in most congressional investigations. Why so short? And why has this been conducted with so little publicity? It’s very odd, isn’t—
While it contains no definitive evidence that senior Obama administration officials ordered the reports to be doctored….
Oh. I see. There was nothing that implicated either Obama or Hillary Clinton, so nobody really cared. That makes sense.
