Obama’s Former DIA Director: Admin Dismissed ISIS Warnings Because It Didn’t Fit The ‘Narrative’
President Barack Obama’s former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency Retired Gen. Michael Flynn said the White House dismissed the threat ISIS posed because it “did not meet a particular narrative that the White House needed” regarding reelection.
Appearing on CNN’s “The Lead” with Jake Tapper on Tuesday, Flynn insisted, “I have said, and I believe, that people that were around the president, his sort of inner circle advising him, I think advised him incorrectly.”
Tapper prefaced the question and explained, “In 2012, your agency put out a new declassified report that seems to have predicted the rise of ISIS.”
The report said the “deteriorating security situation in Iraq and Syria could lead to the declaration of a quote ‘Islamic state through union with our organizations in Iraq and Syria which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and protection of its territory.'”
