Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the Major General Matthew C. Horner Distinguished Chair in Military Theory at the Marine Corps University, has accused the Obama administration of treason for manipulating intelligence in order to keep the American public in the dark about the fight against ISIS.
A new report shows that dozens of intelligence analysts had their reports altered by higher-ups at the Department of Defense’s Central Command (CENTCOM) in order to downplay the ISIS threat.
The manipulation of facts was done to distort the reality behind the rise of ISIS and make President Obama look better.
Gorka charges that these acts are “tantamount to treason” and had this taken place during the World War II era, people would “have been court-martialed and they could have been executed.”

Gorka said the report, which comes from a House Republican panel, confirms allegations by dozens of intelligence analysts that their reports were altered by CENTCOM higher-ups.
“This act of willfully distorting and playing down the intelligence assessments when American is at war is tantamount to being a treasonous act,” Gorka said.
He likened it a member of the intelligence community “watering down” the assessments of what the Japanese or Germans were doing during World War II.
“If that person were found out, they have been court-martialed and they could have been executed,” Gorka said. “This is political interference in the intelligence cycle. It is absolutely outrageous, and it will endanger American lives.”
