Meet Elizabeth O’Bagy
Meet Elizabeth O’Bagy:
The cute college coed who almost led America to war.
“A Syrian researcher whose work was cited by Secretary of State John Kerry and Sen. John McCain during congressional hearings regarding the use of military force against the Syrian government has now been fired for lying on her resume about having a PhD.”
Elizabeth O’Bagy wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece that formed the basis for the administration’s claim regarding its need to go to war against Syria. However, the Institute for the Study of War fired O’Bagy once it discovered she did not have a PhD as she claimed.
Well, what were her credentials? She could play soccer and she had a degree. Not a Ph.D., as she stated but a Bachelor’s degree and working on or almost completed an MA.
Well, she is quite talented…. and very persuasive in her writing …….but she has really should not have lied about her credentials. College kids can be so mischievous.
She is now the political director for the Syrian Emergency Task Force, a nonprofit rebel support group based in Washington, DC.
