Cracks in Obama’s ‘Feel-Good Story’

“I don’t want intelligence shaded by politics,” he says.

We’ve known for some time that Barack Obama was receiving cooked intelligence on the Islamic State. We also suspect he wasn’t an unwitting recipient, but rather he wanted to hear only how awesome his national security policy is. And he’s still lying about all of it. “One of the things I insisted on the day I walked into the Oval Office was that I don’t want intelligence shaded by politics,” he pontificated this week. “I don’t want it shaded by the desire to tell a feel-good story.”

That’s an absurd claim. This is the same guy who repeatedly told us al-Qaida was “decimated” and “on the run,” the Islamic State was the “JV team,” and Benghazi was attacked over a video — all lies told in a bid to win re-election. And he still downplays the threat, dismissing the Islamic State after the Paris attacks as just a “bunch of killers with good social media.”

Meanwhile, the Pentagon inspector general’s investigation into manipulated intelligence continues, and new evidence has surfaced that CENTCOM analysts were pressured to “cut it out” and “toe the line” when it came to intelligence reports. And Obama ignored anything contrary that did make it through. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who ran the defense agency at the time, put it this way: “It was disregarded by the White House. … Frankly, at the White House, it didn’t meet the narrative.”

Finally, speaking of the narrative about Obama having the Islamic State “contained,” his State Department just issued a worldwide travel warning due to jihadi terrorism. And the warning extends for three months. Happy Thanksgiving from Barack Obama.
