A shocking report shows a huge scandal that could bring Barack Obama down.
A decade of dishonesty caught us up in a disastrous foreign situation.
Barack Obama got caught in a huge lie that has Americans talking treason.
Both Democrats and Republicans can both agree that America’s involvement in the Middle East has been a failure.
America has been acting like an imperialist empire for no good reason.
Overthrowing the governments of other nations creates power vacuums that help encourage radical terrorists.
When Obama sent weapons to help support the moderate terrorists in Syria, many of those weapons ended up in the hands of ISIS.
As bad as Bashar al-Assad, President of Syria is, none of the choices to replace him were any better.
America went into the Middle East with the idea that if we just toppled all the bad regimes we’ll get good regimes in their place.
But when it became apparent that this was not the case and the wars that we had become tangled in were unwinnable, Obama’s White House lied to the American people with a bombshell report that was published this week as the Washington Post shows.
According to the Daily Wire:
The report’s dry statistics are shocking, but the interviews, attended to the report, are worse. They paint a picture of two administrations concerned about the public’s ever-souring view on the war and, in some cases, a government desperate to paint the best picture of the Afghan conflict possible, even if that meant lying outright about progress.
Every data point was altered to present the best picture possible,” Col. Bob Crowley told the Inspector General, according to the Washington Post. “Surveys, for instance, were totally unreliable but reinforced that everything we were doing was right and we became a self-licking ice cream cone.”
“Several of those interviewed described explicit and sustained efforts by the U.S. government to deliberately mislead the public,” according to the Post. “They said it was common at military headquarters in Kabul — and at the White House — to distort statistics to make it appear the United States was winning the war when that was not the case.”
Even aid workers, who were charged with spending as much money as possible to ease the pain of ordinary Afghanis were critical of the United States, effort, according to the documents. Some even went so far, the Post says, as to accuse Congress of merely throwing money at the war without regard for outcomes.
“One unidentified contractor told government interviewers he was expected to dole out $3 million daily for projects in a single Afghan district roughly the size of a U.S. county. He once asked a visiting congressman whether the lawmaker could responsibly spend that kind of money back home: ‘He said hell no.’”
America has been paying for a useless war that did no good and Bush and Obama lied to the American people to help justify its outrageous cost.
Do you think that Obama’s policies in the Middle East were a terrible failure?
