Sen. McCain Hires Disgraced Syria Researcher Who Was Fired For Falsifying Credentials


Elizabeth O’Bagy was formerly employed by the Institute for the Study of War, where she quickly became a respected voice on the ongoing conflict between Syrian President Bashar Assad and opposition forces. McCain and US Secretary of State John Kerry once read from an editorial O’Bagy wrote in the Wall Street Journal when advocating for a military strike in front of Congress.

O’Bagy was fired from the Washington, DC based think-tank shortly thereafter, when it was revealed that she did not have a combined masters/PhD from Georgetown University as she had claimed.

She was also a paid advocate for the Syrian rebels, and admitted that the rebels have many terrorist groups among them. Something she failed to disclose.

Good to know liars who fabricate their credentials, and hide their true agendas can be hired by US senators.
