Political “leaders” demand dishonest spin:Remember how the standard liberal chant has been "Bush lied, people died"? Of course, the Bush administration actually followed the intelligence it had. And intelligence that the left had pushed only a short time before:
More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials . . .Ace of Spades:
The accusations suggest that a large number of people tracking the inner workings of the terror groups think that their reports are being manipulated to fit a public narrative. . . .
The analysts have accused senior-level leaders, including the commander in charge of intelligence and his deputy in CENTCOM, of changing their analyses to be more in line with the Obama administration’s public contention that the fight against ISIS and al Qaeda is making progress.
So, how does a president who’s failing catastrophically overseas hide that information from his domestic audience?
Simple answer, really: You lie about everything.
It’s Potemkin villages all the way down.
Everything bad liberals say about conservatives is projection. They know they would (and did) lie when given the opportunity to deceive the public in order to do what they want to do anyway, regardless of the intelligence.
And never forget, Hillary was the Secretary of State for the first four years of this debacle. She either knew it was happening, or walled herself off from knowing. Either way, we don't want her in the White House calling the shots.
