At least 50 intelligence analysts as U.S. Central Command have lodged formal complaints that their analysis is being altered as it goes up the chain of command, ultimately to the President. How can a President make serious military decisions based on faulty and manipulated intelligence?
This is yet another reflection of how things are going so badly in the Middle East. Our policies over there are lousy and have nothing to do with our national defense. They're devastating to our financial situation, and hurt our civil liberties here at home. Americans, unfortunately, are apathetic and have not sent people to Congress demanding that the troops come home.
It's well past the time to mind our own business and protect our own country from attack. For too long we've been trying to remake the Middle East. Until it happens that we have the people over there behind us on this, we're going to continue to see a stream of crisis and tragedy.
It's about time that we all woke up and decided that it was time for a change. And when say the word "change," I don't mean a change of political party, but a real change to the ideas of non-intervention and protection of liberty here at home.
Thank you, and be sure to tune in to tomorrow's Liberty Report!
