Former CIA Director claims Barack Obama forced out a general who tried to warn him the Iraqi army was weak

October 2, 2014

z-islamic-caliphate-flag Last week Barack Obama appeared on ’60 Minutes’ and he infamously tried to blame the intelligence community for bad intelligence which led to the rise of ISIS. This inflamed the intelligence community and we soon learned the real problem was probably the fact that the President missed roughly 60% of his daily intelligence briefings since he was reelected.

  The story does not stop there however for Barack Obama also claimed that the intelligence community misjudged the Iraqi army’s preparedness to fight the organization which he once called a JV team. This might actually be true for James Clapper has admitted this as well, however perhaps the CIA should have listened to Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn (who was the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency) for he was trying to warn the Obama regime about the Iraqi army because he knew it was too weak to take on ISIS.

  But not only did they not listen to him, if this story is true, but Barack Obama might have actually forced him to retire according to former CIA Director James Woolsey.

  Here is more:

  “The head of DIA, nine months ago, Mike Flynn, was making it very clear he was very worried about the stability of the Iraqi army. And so I think that side of things really was not dealt with real squarely by the administration and I think it did, it did either, permitted or required Flynn to leave early, retire early, and he’s the most brilliant intelligence officer this countries seen in the last couple decades.”  

  Even if Barack Obama did not force Mike Flynn’s retirement it is becoming pretty clear that the President was not interested in listening to opposing views because he had an agenda and he had no intention of halting it no matter what the cost. Which of course is most likely the reason he did not attend the daily briefings either.

    Oh we knew this was going to draw blood when the damn broke. And it was surely going to when Obama attempted to blame the CIA and other Intelligence sources. Next out will be all the Generals he forced into retirement. Going to be a nice ride for awhile.

      How Obama could not see the ramifications of throwing the intelligence community under the bus by lying about the intel is beyond me. He just really believes he is abover reproach but maybe this time he went a little too far.

    It doesn’t take genius to understand that a military made up of Shi’as and Sunnis are going to be conflicted when militant groups of each sect are attacking one another. Bush warned him and some of his Generals did too. As you said, Steve, everything bama does has a a ppolitical purpose. Nothing else matters to him.

      Exactly Jim, there is no way he could not see what was going to happen so it makes you wonder what his endgame is here.

    The intelligence community is fast becoming a pawn in Obola’s ideological chess game as has the military already. Since we know there is no one in either the legislative or judicial branches of government willing or able to challenge the national blood letting being carried on by Barry and ValJar what’s next, putting Intelligence under the auspices of the EPA?

      Obama keeps pushing the envelope and when things do not work out somebody else takes the fall. We cannot really blame him because there is nobody who is really willing to stand up to him and do anything about it.

    someone from the DIA got canned? better look out.

    ever notice when someone accuses the CIA of doing something shady, they say with a straight face “that wasn’t us, we don’t do that sort of thing”?

    the CIA isn’t lying or covering up..because they really don’t do those sorts of things. no one ever asks about the DIA. the DIA DOES do those sorts of things. assassinations, overthrowing governments, supplying rebels all over the world. all DIA, usually with the None Such Agency (NSA) doing command and control. the CIA participates in electronic intelligence and satellite imagery, if they participate at all. most times they’re not in a “need to know”.
