Cartoonist Chip Bok: Turkey Pardon

By Chip Bok


Intelligence bosses haven’t been talking turkey when it comes to ISIS.

The Pentagon Inspector General has been investigating Central Command on the suspicion it doctored intelligence to tell the president what he wanted to hear about ISIS. Now The Daily Beast says CENTCOM officials are interfering with the investigation by hiding information.

Those who toe the official, upbeat line about the fight against ISIS are rewarded, while those who don’t are marginalized.

Former Defense Intelligence Director Lt. General Michael Flynn says, “Where intelligence starts and stops is at the White House The president sets the priorities.”
