    Dozens of intelligence analysts working at the U.S. military's Central Command (CENTCOM) have complained that their reports on ISIS and the Nusra Front in Syria were inappropriately altered by senior officials, according to a published report.

    The Daily Beast reported late Wednesday that more than 50 analysts had supported a complaint to the Pentagon that the reports had been changed to make the terror groups seem weaker than the analysts believe they really are. Fox News confirmed last month that the Defense Department's inspector general was investigating the initial complaint, which the New York Times reported was made by a civilian employee of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

    The assessments in question are prepared for several U.S. policymakers, including President Obama.

    I have come to the point that you may tell me something that I did not know, BUT you will not (likely) tell me anything that SURPRISES me. :mad:

    Apparently the Pentagon is now a Democrat place due to political appointments and they are telling the dear leader what he wants to hear just as they did during the Vietnam war.
