Analysts at U.S. Central Command were pressured to ease off negative assessments about the Islamic State threat and were even told in an email to "cut it out,” Fox News has learned – as an investigation expands into whether intelligence reports were altered to present a more positive picture.

Fox News is told by a source close to the CENTCOM analysts that the pressure on them included at least two emails saying they needed to "cut it out” and "toe the line.”

Separately, a former Pentagon official told Fox News there apparently was an attempt to destroy the communications. The Pentagon official said the email warnings were "not well received" by the analysts.

Those emails, among others, are now in the possession of the Pentagon inspector general. The IG’s probe is expanding into whether intelligence assessments were changed to give a more positive picture of the anti-ISIS campaign.

The former Pentagon official said there were "multiple assessments” from military intelligence and the CIA regarding the "rapid rise” of ISIS in Iraq and North Africa in the year leading up to the group’s territory grab in 2014.

Similar intelligence was included in the President’s Daily Brief, or PDB – the intelligence community’s most authoritative product -- during the same time period. Yet the official, who was part of the White House discussions, said the administration kept "kicking the can down the road." The official said there was no discussion of the military involvement needed to make a difference.

This Is Huge: CENTCOM Destroyed Evidence




This is a really big deal. The latest government corruption is in our Pentagon. Officials in CENTCOM have been deleting files and emails to cover up their falsified accounts in the war on ISIS. They have been attempting to make the US look far more effective than it has been.

Since last summer, the Pentagon’s inspector general has been investigating allegations that the intelligence on ISIS had been manipulated. Central Command, which oversees U.S. Department of Defense operations in the Middle East, altered assessments of the campaign against ISIS to make it appear as though the United States and Western partners were making more progress than they really were, according to claims from two whistleblowers assigned to CENTCOM and 50 other spies.

Napolitano on charges of destruction of CENTCOM intel: 'It is a big deal'




Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano told viewers Thursday on "Special Report with Bret Baier” that charges of personnel at U.S Central Command (CENTCOM) allegedly destroying evidence to minimize negative assessments of the administration’s fight against ISIS is "a big deal and I'm sorry to say I think it's going to go nowhere in the Obama administration.”








Impeachment will never happen.....




It's a true banana republic.

Unless there's a trail to a White House staffer directing them to delete those files, it won't go any further than Centcom.

The deleted files aside, the manipulation of intelligence should reflect on the administration....but it probably won't.

By the time the buck has passed through all the lower level meat shields, it's only about 1/10 cent, and the top people have an aide to deal with penny ante stuff.

It would look bad if it seemed like Obama is on the terrorists' side. Like say, pretending to fight ISIS, or freeing GITMO prisoners.

Doesn't even matter. I would suck Ron Jeremy's cock if anyone from Clinton, Lerner, Holder, or 0bama were ever indicted. They're above the law and will remain there until the pitchforks come out. Which is to say never.
