Op-Ed Writer For WSJ On Syrian War Lied About PhD From Georgetown

Do you remember Elizabeth O'Bagy? Let me refresh your memory. She is the 26 year old "Syrian researcher" who penned an op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), that was later cited by both Secretary of State John Kerry and Senator John McCain during congressional hearings about the use of force in Syria. Ms. O'Bagy was initially represented as a "senior analyst" at the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), and was referred to as "Dr. O'Bagy" by Senator McCain when he read from her piece to Secretary Kerry during last Tuesday's senate hearings. Then the next day, Kerry, during the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, described her article as "very interesting" and urged committee members to read it

It was later proven that Ms. O'Bagy was not only a "senior analyst" (at age 26?) at ISW, BUT, "Ms. O’Bagy is affiliated with the Syrian Emergency Task Force, a nonprofit operating as a 501(c)(3) pending IRS approval that subcontracts with the U.S. and British governments to provide aid to the Syrian opposition,” from the WSJ clarification added later to the article.

Now we have the following news from Politico, that shows that the woman Kerry and McCain both found so "knowledgable" LIED about having a PhD. from Georgetown University, and was fired from ISW. So let me ask you. Do you think whether or not the USA should go to war, be it Syria or anyplace else, should hinge on the advice from any 26 year old? I certainly do not.

I am sure we can look forward to more incompetence to come from members of the Obama administration, as well as Senators like McCain And Graham.
