Sounds like a bunch of imbred losers..
It gets worse. IMHO, McCain and Kerry used O’Bagy for the WSJ piece.
OBagy graduated from Georgetown with a bachelors degree in Arabic and went to live in Cairo for two years before returning to Washington to seek her masters and PhD from her alma mater in Arabic Studies. At the end of 2011 she began an internship with the Institute.
OBagy, a registered Democrat who voted twice for Obama, admits now that she was naïve about the Institute and Kim and her husband Fred Kagan.
Prior to ISW, she received a Critical Language Scholarship to study Arabic in Tangier Morocco and studied Arabic at the American University in Cairo.
The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program is a program of the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Fox missed something-— “Previously I was a Senior Research Analyst at the Institute For the Study of War where I specilized in Syrian politicss and security.”

Not only did Kimberly Kagan have prior knowledge that O’Bagy did NOT have a PhD, she also knew (sent out?) O’Bagy to propagandize Congress and the MSM with lies about the strength and numbers of Syrian rebel “moderates.”
And... to emphasize...what is this?!!!
“Previously I was a Senior Research Analyst at the Institute For the Study of War where I specialized in Syrian politicss and security.”
ISW, et al, bear close scrutiny. We now have THREE reasons O’Bagy was thrown under the bus by ISW, not the least of which is that her “research” was being exposed as a lie.
