Syria researcher cited by McCain, Kerry fired for fabricating credentials

I had told you recently that her opinion couldn’t be trusted anyway because she is a paid spokesperson for the rebels. Now, she’s also a liar, and a fraud.


The researcher and commentator who was cited by US leaders who have called for military action against the Middle Eastern country has been fired from her Washington-based think tank for lying about her qualifications.

“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 research group announced in an online statement Wednesday. “ISW has accordingly terminated Ms. O’Bagy’s employment, effective immediately.”
