Obama Asks Pentagon to Investigate Intelligence Claims

“President Obama said Sunday he has told top military officials to ‘get to the bottom’ of reports that intelligence assessments have been altered to give a rosier assessment of progress in turning back the Islamic State,” USA Today reports.  

“Obama was responding to a report in The New York Times
that the Pentagon’s inspector general has expanded its probe of intelligence reports from Central Command, or CENTCOM, and that congressional committees were seeking answers about whether that intelligence had been shaded to make it appear more progress is being made. The Times reported that the Pentagon has added more investigators who have seized documents related to intelligence reports.”
