Intelligence Reports being 'Spun' Nurely Shot?
« on: September 13, 2015, 11:24:49 AM »
I came upon this article today with interesting links out to its sources: Do they lie? Does a bear shit in the woods?

The article brings together several strands but basically it tells us that the US government in various forms has been lying to the people and making claims of the intelligence community that are not true. The intelligence community is not happy about having been misused in this way.

Of course it goes without saying (or should do) that if this happens in one area of intelligence claims then it certainly happens elsewhere.

Well, looks like somebody wasn't listening to their intelligence staff.

The world turned upside down and somebody didn't know until afterward - not even when somebody else telegraphed it on national TV in the US.
