50 Spies Allege that their ISIS Reports were Changed by Superiors

Holy smokes, that’s a lot of sources [1]:

More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS [2] and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned.

The complaints spurred the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact that so many people complained suggests there are deep-rooted, systemic problems in how the U.S. military command [3] charged with the war against the self-proclaimed Islamic State assesses intelligence.
