Senior Pentagon officials falsify intelligence reports

Post by jvquarterback » Thu Feb 02, 2017 6:48 pm

I know, I know the article says reports weren't falsify the reports but that's using the same definition of the word is Bill Clinton likes to use.

One senior analyst told investigators: "Manipulation, watering down, hedging, or preventing from running all together, those are the sort of practices I am talking about."

Another stated: "I wouldn't say falsified, but definitely change and influence."

Their names were withheld.

Like I said, it depends on your definition of the word "to be."

So we agree. Intelligence was being changed to fit the narrative. The intel community was feeding the administration fake intel because it was requested.

Which makes sense considering how hard the admin worked to promote fake news that supported their narratives and story telling proclivities.

What grinds my gears is how the Left and even some GOPers are now claiming Trump can't call for an investigation of voter fraud by the DOJ because Trump has already declared it exists, so any investigation would be politically tainted.....as if the same thing didn't just happen in December with Obama claiming the election was hacked by Russia which helped Trump, and then calling for an Intelligence investigation less than 2 weeks later to find out if he was right....

That's just how the military/CIA/FBI/NSA operates. It isn't like this is a new thing. Higher ups brought about yellow cake Uranium and various other lies while Bush was president.

You can add NOAA to your list of falsifiers-for-political-expediency (in case you missed "Climategate" the first time around).

What better way to fund an electric car company that doesn't build cars? Or a battery factory that never built a single battery? Both of which received millions of taxpayer dollars.

The part of the this that made me laugh was the car they did "build" had a top speed of 25mph due to regulatory restrictions. They "built" 25 of them (actually had them disassembled and would reassemble them any time inspectors showed up. The same 25 each time.
