A Washington scholar whose writings on Syria were touted by top U.S. officials in making the case for a military strike has been fired from the Institute for the Study of War for allegedly lying about her education credentials.

The development comes after Elizabeth O'Bagy's credibility and objectivity had come under scrutiny over her work with a Syrian opposition advocacy group.

The institute, where she had worked as a senior analyst, on Wednesday posted a terse statement on its website claiming she also misled the organization about having a Ph.D.

"The Institute for the Study of War has learned and confirmed that, contrary to her representations, Ms. Elizabeth O'Bagy does not in fact have a Ph.D. degree from Georgetown University. ISW has accordingly terminated Ms. O'Bagy's employment, effective immediately," the statement said.

26 year old Phd? The only way she could get past her bosses is if she’s HOT! It’s amazing what people try to get away with these days.

She claims she had already turned in her thesis and was just waiting to be given her PHD.

So she's a fraud on two counts - standard practice for most neoconservative think tanks.

The first is posing as a disinterested scholar and analyst of the situation in Syria, when in fact she's a mouthpiece for the rebels.

The second fraud is lying about her non-existent credentials. Keep 'em coming!

The only question is why so many people took her seriously to begin with.
