    Former DIA Chief: Islamic State Intel Probe Should Start in White House

    Recent events have drawn attention away from the investigation of manipulated ISIS intelligence, but it’s a hot story that keeps heating up.

    Lt. General Michael Flynn, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012 through 2014, appeared on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News program Monday night to say what many have been thinking: “The focus of this investigation ought to start at the top. Where intelligence starts and stops is at the White House.”


    He expressed disbelief at the current White House line that holds President Obama was completely surprised by the rise of ISIS. “To say that I’m surprised at the rise of this threat… it’s a gross understatement as to what reality really is,” said Flynn.

    The former DIA chief thought it was likely intelligence had been cut and trimmed to fit the president’s ideology, particularly his refusal to confront radical Islam and its relationship to terrorism. He said veteran intelligence officials with years of experience tried in vain to get Obama to acknowledge this threat.
