I’m not one to worship credentials, what matters is someone’s knowledge, experience, and judgment.... but still, when someone fakes credentials that always reflects badly upon ..... knowledge, experience, and judgment.
My tagline was invented upon reading about this “expert” for McQueeg.
The damage has been done. Her bizarre claim that the al Qaeda atrocity committing anti Christian rebels are a moderate credible alternative to Assad is now embedded in the US government and the MSM working consensus on Syria. Once a lie becomes accepted, inept strategically disastrous policy follows.
Remember Mark Fuhrman’s lying about using the “N Word” in the OJ Trial? His subsequent testimony was thusly declared null and void. O’Bagy told a real whopper about her academic accomplishments. Therefore, her Syrian Reporting is also highly suspect? A liar is a liar is a liar!
mods, I searched before posting this article, but it looks like Don-o posted it while I was still preparing my post, 3 minutes before I posted this one (8:25 vs. 8:28).
Sorry for the duplication.....
So they were going to lie us into war. Just makes Putin look more like the good guy in this conflict.
“Her research”? What “research”? It was pure, fabricated propaganda.
“Kagan defends OBagys research, which was based on her connections and interactions with opposition leaders both inside and outside Syria and argued in favor of supporting the moderate Syrian opposition....”
Kagan any kin to the SC justice Kagan— Kagan being “short” for Kaganovich (it is).
The “connections” this O’Bagy has with the opposition is probably drinks or pelvic affiliation with their Saudi paid agents in Georgetown. What sheer idiocy.
And the echo chamber that is the brains of Kerry and McCain (who both served in Vietnam you know)... further inflates the complete BS leading us into yet another generated civil war for profiteers. As a conservative, more and more am sounding and thinking WAY outside the Beltway bandits of mil-industrial complex Eisenhower warned us about. Since when are there “moderate” muslim rebels unless we “create them” with “experts” like this. This is total shite.
If she was never in a PHD program, why does this article call her Dr.?
OBagy worked for ISW, founded by Kimberly Kagan.
Kagans brother is McCain adviser, Robert Kagan.
Who is Robert married to? Victoria Nuland, former spokesperson for the United States Department of State. (She was nominated to serve as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs in May 2013.)
Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham were vocal critics of the administrations messaging after the Benghazi attacks, but on Friday, they issued a laudatory statement about Victoria Nuland
D.C. and our ruling oligarchy are and inbreed cesspool. Most have mediocre minds at best. Lots of them, such as McCain are down right insane and stupid to boot. Dido our “media” actually things are even worse in our “media” I now rely on the Brit press for real news and real reporting. Hell even the Russian press is better then most of what passes for press in the USA.
Any more questions?
There IS no research, only opinion, and in this case propaganda, with all these government infiltrators.
Since when has either egregious stupidity or lack of qualifications hindered any Obama foreign policy initiative?
Good for her! She'll really go places.
I hear there's an opening on John McShame's staff, and she should fit right in.
She sounds like Obama, and a perfect fit with his Administration and the kind of “expertise” it needs.
