Congressional Report Finds Intelligence Manipulated on ISIS by Obama Administration
By Julian Hattem - The Hill
A House Republican task force has concluded that key military intelligence was manipulated to paint an unrealistically optimistic picture of the United States’ fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
The report, set to be released later on Thursday, found that final intelligence assessments out of the Pentagon’s Central Command (CENTCOM) differed from on-the-ground conclusions, according to Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), a member of the task force.
"The facts on the ground didn't match what the intelligence was saying out of the United States Central Command," Pompeo said on CBS's “This Morning.”
