    The picture we’ve been given of the fight against ISIS and Al Quaeda in Iraq and Syria has apparently been intentionally manipulated to fit the storyline that the war is going well and ISIS is slowly but surely going down.

    Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies), John Iadarola (Think Tank), and Wes Clark Jr., hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down.

    "More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S.

    military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned.

    The fact that so many people complained suggests there are deep-rooted, systemic problems in how the U.S.

    military command charged with the war against the self-proclaimed Islamic State assesses intelligence.

    “The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official said.”*
