ISIS Baffling U.S. Intelligence Agencies
Daily Beast, by Eli Lake

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/14/2014 9:36:48 PM

It’s been two months since ISIS took over Iraq’s second largest city. But U.S. analysts are still trying to figure out how big the group is and the real identities of its leaders. The U.S. intelligence community is still trying to answer basic questions about the jihadists who tried to wipe out Iraq’s remaining Yazidis and who now threaten to overrun the capital of the country’s Kurdish provinces. In a briefing for reporters Thursday, U.S. intelligence officials said the government is in the process of re-evaluating an estimate from early this year that said the Islamic State of Iraq and

Comments:
Well ain´t that just wonderful and makes me feel so safe and secure! I guess I shouldn´t be surprised with the evil Brennan in the lead. God only knows what Obama and he have done to those intelligence agencies. It makes me shudder to think how this will all end.

They really are not baffling our agencies, it´s just that the punk does want our agencies to do anything about them.

It´s called aiding and abetting the enemies of the United States.

What is baffling is that Baraq Hussein Obola has not bombed every bridge over the Euphates to divide Cloph Ibrahim´s territory in two. All electric plants in occupied territories and especially oil depots, refineries, gas stations and gasoline trucks coming from Turkey should go. They need the gasoline.

Also baffling is the cowardice of the Shiites. Small wonder the Sunnis dominated them for so many centuries.

I hope that the Islamic State attacks Medina and Mecca. After all what is a Caliph without Mecca? My regret is that Christians got caught in the middle of this otherwise positive bloodletting.

When you hire diversity instead of intelligence, this is what you get. I can only assume the intelligence agencies are chock full of MB diversity.

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Janay Rice, who was seen being punched out by her then-fiancé Ray Rice in a video released by TMZ yesterday, posted a message to her Instagram account Tuesday morning denouncing the media for costing Rice his football career and making her “relive” the assault just to “gain ratings.” It’s her first statement since the release of the video. Rice was cut from the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the league after the video surfaced yesterday; he had previously been suspended only two games. Janay married Rice earlier in the summer and declined to press charges against him for the

LUSBY, Md. — About 50 miles outside Washington D.C. is a nuclear power plant that sits on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. It’s the sort of place the government has warned is vulnerable to a terrorist attack. But an investigation conducted by The Daily Caller found that anybody can enter the property of the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, drive through the front gates, park not far from a nuclear reactor and have no contact of any kind with security. A reporter and videographer drove from the nation’s capital last Friday to Calvert Cliffs and twice accessed the power plant

TMZ has obtained security footage showing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching out his fiancée in an Atlantic City elevator last February. In the video the couple is seen arguing on their way to the elevator. Once inside the argument escalates and Ray Rice is seen punching then-fiancée (now wife) Janay Palmer in the face, causing her to drop to the floor unconscious. Rice was booked on assault, a charge authorities increased when they obtained this video of the incident. Until now, only video of Rice dragging Palmer out of the elevator had been seen by the public. The video is likely to reignite anger over Rice’s

The number of foreign-born individuals holding jobs in the United States hit a recorded high of 24,639,000 in August, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS has been tracking the number of foreign-born workers annually since 2005 and monthly since 2007. The BLS does not distinguish between foreign-born individuals who are in the United States legally and those who are here illegally. “The foreign born are those who reside in the United States but who were born outside the country or one of its outlying areas to parents who were not U.S. citizens,” the BLS explains. “The

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - Amir Meshal has a fascinating history. He´s originally from New Jersey, but back in 2007 he was detained and interrogated by the FBI in Kenya after escaping from Somalia. Somehow, his travels brought him to Minnesota, and to a mosque in Bloomington, which kicked him out this summer. Friday prayers bring hundreds to the Al-Farooq Youth and Family Center, which is perhaps the largest mosque in the Twin Cities. But not everyone is welcome -- not after Meshal began attending prayer and hanging out earlier this year. In June, the center called police and had Meshal, 31,

Top Intel Dem: ‘No evidence’

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said new allegations that U.S. commandos were ordered to “stand down” during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, aren’t supported by findings from House and Senate investigators. Five commandos who survived the Benghazi attack, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, made the allegation in a new book, accusing the CIA station chief of delaying a rescue mission. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) said lawmakers never came across evidence indicating the station chief had told his team to “stand down” and abort a

Two former Obama cabinet officials have declined to testify before the House Oversight Committee in its probe of the White House political office. The news came late Friday in an angry statement from Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who blasted the officials for [shrinking] "from an examination of the facts." "The White House´s efforts to reconfigure its political office does not inoculate it from oversight of any prior wrongdoing or efforts to rectify these legal violations," Issa said. Issa sought out former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis last month because both were accused of violating

Bob Beckel, token liberal panelist of “The Five” on Fox News, sparred with his co-hosts today, claiming that climate change was a bigger threat to the U.S. than the terror group ISIL. “Climate change is so much more consequential than ISIS ever was it’s like putting the United States military up against the boy scouts,” Beckel said. In response, co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle asked Beckel if he was joking, sparking a heated back and forth before Beckel made a final push to advance his argument. “I have people that I think scientifically have a good argument other people say they have a good argument,

State Department spokesman Jen Psaki makes me psick. If you read P.G. Wodehouse, you know the “P” in her name is silent, as in “phthisis,” “psychic” and “ptarmigan” (as Wodehouse’s Psmith explains). And Psaki’s colleague Marie Harf makes me barf. Together Psaki and Harf give the catastrophic foreign policy of the Obama administration a lighter than air, Valley Girl kind of feel. It’s a novel use of expressive form. Paul Mirengoff explores their weightlessness in the adjacent post.

The Chuck Todd interview with President Obama was riddled with them. Even when being interviewed by a fellow ideological traveler.

The beatings of three people in a Kroger parking lot Saturday night will not be investigated as a hate crime, according to police officials. Memphis Police Department director Toney Armstrong said he’s had lots of calls asking how the investigation would proceed but said there is “not sufficient enough evidence to investigate this as a hate crime.” “I know this has a lot of racial undertones,” Armstrong said during a news conference Monday at Memphis City Hall. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls and I know (Memphis Mayor A C Wharton) has as well.

In a few days president Obama will unveil his strategy to destroy ISIS to a waiting public. (Snip) However the basic outlines of the strategy itself have emerged from information already available to the press. A Los Angeles Times story suggests that Obama will rely on proxies to fight ISIS at three levels: on the ground, within the region and in the West. Kerry invokes comparisons to the Sunni Awakening, seeking to recall the days when al-Qaeda in Iraq was beaten by George Bush. Obama plans to organize the Sunni Arabs to fight ISIS.

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with
