Media: US congressmen found evidence of distortion of intelligence reports on the activities of the IG

A special US Congress team (all Republicans) found evidence of distortion by the leadership of the US Central Command (CENTCOM) of information about terrorist activities in the Middle East, reports TASS Post publication The Daily Beast.

Media: US congressmen found evidence of distortion of intelligence reports on the activities of the IG

"The military leadership of the United States put pressure on intelligence analysts to diminish the importance of threats emanating from the IG and al-Qaeda," the report of the special commission quotes the publication.

Lawmakers concluded that "CENTCOM made changes to intelligence reports to portray the fight against IS and al-Qaeda in a more favorable light than analyst reports that were guided by real facts."

At the same time, the special group “did not find incontrovertible evidence that Barack Obama’s administration gave orders to fabricate reports, but a five-month investigation confirmed reports that CENTCOM’s intelligence managers put pressure on analysts who, in their work, indicated that IS The threat is not as dangerous as the analysts themselves believe. ”

“The investigation continues, but the report confirmed the allegations of altering intelligence reports,” a source told.

Directly, the Commission of the Congress cannot punish CENTCOM, “but it includes members of the House of Representatives' committees who can cut funding for the command,” the article says.

In addition, his investigation into these facts is conducted by the Pentagon’s Chief Inspector, an independent oversight body of the military. And if his conclusions coincide with the opinion of congressmen, he will be able to make specific recommendations that will become binding on the command.

TASS recalls that last year one of the civilian intelligence analysts of the US Department of Defense reported to his superiors about cases of distortion of information about terrorist groups. According to him, the reports with the amended information were intended for the Washington administration and Obama himself.

        How distortions were detected in time. In the midst of the US election race. Democrats can insert an extra "hairpin" in the right place.

      Apparently the US Air Force command got hooked on the World of Warplanes, the infantry on the World of Tanks, and the sailors on the World of Warships, sometimes in their reports they drive a SENTCOM blizzard, confusing reality with virtual reality ... laughing

    It’s just that the Ishilovites and al-Qaeda from the teachers adopted the way of giving the wrong information to their owners in the State Department.

    "CENTCOM has been revising intelligence reports to portray the fight against IS and Al-Qaeda in a more favorable light than analyst reports based on real facts."
    Yes, they did not distort, they simply composed fairy tales ... There is no fight, no ...

    Weapons were sent to al-Qaeda’s struggle with IS (well, such as fighting against greater evil with the hands of lesser evil) money was allocated from various CIA funds to purchase weapons, the Pentagon was fed by bureaucrats no less than ours for repairing roads and utilities, and American corporations The military-industrial complex as a whole was not averse to earning a little more, and someone wants to cover up this raspberry ?!

    CENTCOM amended intelligence reports

    Intelligence reports did not take on what was happening, but what the FSA government wants to hear.

    "And if his conclusions coincide with the opinion of the congressmen, then he will be able to make specific recommendations that will become binding on the command."

    This is how to understand? After almost six months of verification, a recommendation will be made - to lie badly? And in CENTCOM it turns out they did not even suspect. On the other hand, the work of American intelligence against its own country can only be welcomed.

    There is nothing to be surprised at. Everything is in the usual frontiers of conducting foreign and domestic policy of the United States. It is enough to recall a test tube and everything immediately fits into the framework defined by the United States.

    "The more monstrous the lie, the sooner it will be believed." The Goebbels case is alive and blooming! Moreover, a lie from the lips of the president, a peace prize winner, is no longer a lie. It's just that they "see the problems of the world."
