WSJ op-ed writer Elizabeth O’Bagy fired for resume lie

The Syria researcher whose Wall Street Journal op-piece was cited by Secretary of State John Kerry and Sen. John McCain during congressional hearings about the use of force has been fired from the Institute for the Study of War for lying about having a Ph.D., the group announced on Wednesday.

“The Institute for the Study of War has learned and confirmed that, contrary to her representations, Ms. Elizabeth O’Bagy does not in fact have a Ph.D. degree from Georgetown University,” the institute said in a statement. “ISW has accordingly terminated Ms. O’Bagy’s employment, effective immediately.”

O’Bagy’s Aug. 30 op-ed piece for the Journal, “On the Front Lines of Syria’s Civil War,” was cited by both Kerry and McCain last week. McCain read from the piece last Tuesday to Kerry, calling it “an important op-ed by Dr. Elizabeth O’Bagy.” The next day, Kerry also brought up the piece before a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing and described it as a “very interesting article” and recommended that members read it.

But the piece had also come under fire for misrepresenting her affiliations. Originally the op-ed only listed O’Bagy, 26, as only “a senior analyst” at the ISW, later adding a clarification that disclosed her connection to a Syrian rebel advocacy group.

“In addition to her role at the Institute for the Study of War, 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,” the WSJ added in its clarification.


I guess Kerry and McCain will spout any lies they hear from anybody and never check out the information before they go to hearings! Way to go, guys!  ::)

CAN AMERICA FIND SOME REAL LEADERS FOR A CHANGE? WE ARE SICK OF TOADIES, IDIOTS AND ELITE MINIONS AND WANNABES BEING GIVEN LEADERSHIP JOBS THEY DON'T DESERVE OR QUALIFY FOR. THEY ARE A JOKE! AMERICA, GET THESE PEOPLE OUT OF OFFICE AND NOW, AND STOP ELECTING THESE TYPES. DO YOUR HOMEWORK ON ANY CANDIDATE FOR OFFICE. IF YOU FIND THEY LIE ONE TIME, DO NOT VOTE FOR THEM. WE MUST HAVE A NO TOLERANCE POSITION ON LIARS WHO RUN FOR OFFICE!
