Analysts Accuse CENTCOM of Covering Up Cooked ISIS Intelligence - The Daily Beast
These days, even the military seems fearful of reporting undesirable truth...
On the Daily Beast website, Shane Harris and Nancy A. Youssef teamed up on this post:
"In July, a group of intelligence analysts at the U.S. military’s Central Command accused their bosses of distorting and selectively editing intelligence reports about the fight against ISIS in order to portray that campaign as more successful than it really was. As a result of those complaints, the Pentagon’s inspector general opened an investigation.
Now, the allegations of misconduct have extended to a possible cover-up, with some analysts accusing the senior intelligence officials at Centcom, Maj. Gen. Steven Grove and his civilian deputy, Gregory Ryckman, of deleting emails and files from computer systems before the inspector general could examine them, three individuals familiar with the investigation told The Daily Beast."
