Spook Revolt Against Obama Administration (Updated)Topics: Libya, Political News and commentaries
Career intelligence officials are angered over what they say is an Obama administration cover up of intelligence on Iranian, al Qaeda surge in Egypt and Libya. Most damning is their charge that false information was either knowingly disseminated by Office of the Director of National Intelligence or was directed to be put out by senior policy officials for political reasons since the statement was contradicted by numerous intelligence reports at the time of the attack indicating it was al Qaeda-related terrorism.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Weeks before the presidential election, President Barack Obama's administration faces mounting opposition from within the ranks of U.S. intelligence agencies over what career officers say is a "cover up" of intelligence information about terrorism in North Africa.Take the time to read the entire piece. The extent of the Obama administration's foreign policy failure in the Middle East and its determination to cover it up for political reasons, boggles the mind and should infuriate every clear-thinking American (this obviously excludes the Obamabots). If this was a Republican administration the media would be screaming for impeachment.
Intelligence held back from senior officials and the public includes numerous classified reports revealing clear Iranian support for jihadists throughout the tumultuous North Africa and Middle East region, as well as notably widespread al Qaeda penetration into Egypt and Libya in the months before the deadly Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
[...] Officials with access to intelligence reports, based on both technical spying and human agents, said specific reporting revealed an alarming surge in clandestine al Qaeda activity months before the attack in Benghazi.
Yet the Obama administration sought to keep the information from becoming public to avoid exposing what the officials say is a Middle East policy failure by Obama.
