Among Liberal Networks, Only CBS News covered ISIS Intelligence Manipulation on Website

Well, the lack of reporting from ABC News and NBC News could be about protecting the Obama narrative [1] that ISIS is on the run and they’re not a threat, but climate change and Trump are bigger threats:

According to a hard-hitting government task force report released Thursday, intelligence generated by the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) was manipulated to paint a rosier picture of the U.S. effort to combat ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

The report finds that, beginning in mid-2014, final intelligence reports issued by CENTCOM contradicted the initial internal assessments made by its own analysts, reports CBS News correspondent Jim Axelrod.

“The facts on the ground didn’t match what the intelligence was saying out of the United States Central Command,” said Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., a member of the task force.
