Pentagon Expands Inquiry Into Intelligence on ISIS Surge

WASHINGTON — When Islamic State fighters overran a string of Iraqi cities last year, analysts at United States Central Command wrote classified assessments for military intelligence officials and policy makers that documented the humiliating retreat of the Iraqi Army. But before the assessments were final, former intelligence officials said, the analysts’ superiors made significant changes.

In the revised documents, the Iraqi Army had not retreated at all. The soldiers had simply “redeployed.”

Such changes are at the heart of an expanding internal Pentagon investigation of Centcom, as Central Command is known, where analysts say that supervisors revised conclusions to mask some of the American military’s failures in training Iraqi troops and beating back the Islamic State. The analysts say supervisors were particularly eager to paint a more optimistic picture of America’s role in the conflict than was warranted.

In recent weeks, the Pentagon inspector general seized a large trove of emails and documents from military servers as it examines the claims, and has added more investigators to the inquiry.

'Nearly impossible' to find jihadists among migrants, Greeks warn

Lesbos (Greece) (AFP) - As the hunt for jihadists widens after last week's Paris attacks, authorities in Greece warn it was virtually impossible to pick out dangerous extremists among arriving migrants, without prior intelligence.

"If they are not already registered in the database, it's nearly impossible," says Dimitris Amountzias, police captain in charge of Moria, Greece's main registration camp on the island of Lesbos.

At the camp, dozens of migrants and refugees queue to give their fingerprints, have a photo taken and be quizzed by agents from European border agency Frontex.

It's a seemingly detailed security check, but jihadists have already proven they can bypass it with ease.

The War On Terrorism: Choosing To Fight The George W. Bush Way Again

President Barack Obama is spinning like a top. After systematically dismantling years of work and marginalizing the sacrifice of countless Americans who fought the War on Terrorism during the Bush years, he’s now flailing to articulate some semblance of an anti-terror policy. French President Francois Hollande directly countered Obama’s own words in his address to Parliament Monday saying of the fight against ISIS, “It’s not about containing. It’s about destroying this enemy.”

The American President is rhetorically groping his way through crisis yet again, trying in vain to sound tougher at a time when the “JV team” is flooding Europe with refugees and Jihadists. Obama himself is supporting allowing 10,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S. even though the CIA has indicated there are already more than 900 active domestic ISIS investigations. This week, half of the governors in the United States have refused to allow resettlement of Syrian refugees within their borders.

Two distinct but related battles are being waged here. One is between the values of freedom, tolerance and participatory government against the international radical Islamist movement. The other is an ideological fight between the Bush and Obama anti-terror strategies and indeed both men’s view of the world in which we live.

Bush saw the distinction between the terrorist ideology and freedom in very stark terms. He believed and his policy reflected that this is a global threat from dozens of groups–not just Al Qaida or ISIS–that will stop at nothing to kill as many people as they can. Iraq, for better or worse, may have become the perceived core of his War on Terror, but in reality it was only a piece of a much larger, global strategy that was hunting, disabling and killing terrorists every day. He understood that the environment that aids terror leaders in radicalizing followers stems from a lack of freedom and opportunities for advancement in many societies.

Secure the Border to Protect American Interests

Last week I introduced a bold immigration plan to secure the border, restore the rule of law, and reform legal immigration in a way that protects Americans. My plan safeguards Americans’ jobs and fortifies our national security. Just hours after I announced the plan, the need to secure the border became all the more evident as ISIS coordinated multiple, gruesome attacks on Paris and Beirut.

I have stood with millions of Americans who understand the dangers of a porous national border, the foolhardiness of President Obama’s amnesty, and the lunacy of accepting tens of thousands of Syrian refugees. Americans see the crushing economic consequences of low-skill labor flooding our job market every day. But the atrocities in Paris and Beirut spur us to fight even harder to protect not only American workers, but also vital national security interests.

The American people are tired of living in a country with the lowest work-force participation since the Carter Administration. The Obama administration is currently enabling those here illegally to live and work in the shadows, which endangers illegal immigrants and harms Americans, especially low-wage earners. To avoid this, we must put in place a strong E-Verify system to uphold the law and stop allowing companies to deduct illegal immigrants’ salaries as a business expense, and we must prevent illegal immigrants from receiving taxpayer-funded government benefits. When it comes to visas, we must stop enticing those who come legally to overstay their visas indefinitely. An estimated 40 percent of illegal immigrants currently in the United States originally came legally, but are overstaying their visas. That’s wrong; it’s an abuse of America’s generosity, and it’s hurting American workers.
