John McCain, Elizabeth O'Bagy, and 'Allahu Akbar'
Elizabeth O'Bagy Senator John McCain's foreign policy staffer Elizabeth O'Bagy was cited in a once-influential Wall Street Journal op-ed titled, "Elizabeth O'Bagy: On the Front Lines of Syria's Civil War," where she attempted to dismiss the threat that US arms may end up in the hands of Syria's radical Sunni terrorist groups. O'Bagy, as a senior analyst at the Institute for the Study of War, utilized her now-disproven credentials as a 26-year-old Ph.D. She was also found to have been working as a paid-employee of an organization that advocates on behalf of the Free Syrian Army. O'Bagy wrote in the WSJ: "Contrary to many media accounts, the war in Syria is not being waged entirely, or even predominantly, by dangerous Islamists and al Qaeda die-hards." She continued: "Moderate opposition forces-a collection of groups known as the Free Syrian Army-continue to lead the fight against the Syrian regime." The left-wing Washington Post's Editorial Board was thrilled with O'Bagy's analysis, which in effect created a bipartisan coalition for intervention on behalf of the Syrian "rebels" in the elite media. The Post's Editorial Board wrote, "Both U.S and independent intelligence estimates show that the 11 jihadist groups identified in Syria make up a small minority of the anti-government forces. U.S officials say they constitute 15 percent to 25 percent of fighters. Elizabeth O'Bagy, an analyst at the Institute for the Study of War who has travelled extensively inside Syria, reports that al-Qaeda and mainstream rebel forces are largely separated from each other and control different pieces of territory." O'Bagy's analysis turned out to be completely off-base. Journalist Charles Johnson first uncovered that O'Bagy had not disclosed her work as a paid-employee of the Syrian Emergency Task Force, which lobbied on behalf of the Syrian opposition forces. Additionally, O'Bagy, a registered Democrat and big Obama supporter, had also grossly overstated her credentials, falsely claiming that she had acquired a Ph.D. from Georgetown University.

Less than a month after being fired for falsely claiming to hold a Ph.D, Syria researcher Elizabeth O'Bagy has a new job.
Foreign Policy's The Cable reported Friday that O'Bagy has been hired by Sen. "Elizabeth is a talented researcher, and I have been very impressed by her knowledge and analysis in multiple briefings over the last year," McCain told The Cable in a statement. O'Bagy was previously employed by the Institute for the Study Of War, who fired her on Sept. 11 after learning that her Dr. title was untrue.

John McCain, R-Ariz., and Secretary of State John F. Kerry to cast members of the Free Syria Army as "moderates" among the rebel forces opposing the government of Bashir al-Assad was the brain-child of Elizabeth O'Bagy, a 26-year-old graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in Arab studies and political science at Georgetown University, who is working on a dissertation on woman's militancy.
In his testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday, Kerry cited O'Bagy, arguing that the war in Syria is "not being waged entirely or even predominately by dangerous Islamists and al-Qaida die-hards," but rather the struggle is being led but "moderate opposition forces - a collection of groups known as the Free Syria Army." In her capacity as a senior research analyst and the Syria team leader at the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War think-tank, O'Bagy authored a report in March titled "The Free Syrian Army" in which she argued as follows: O'Bagy also works as the political director of the Washington-based Syrian Emergency Task Force, or SETF, chaired by Mohamed Kawam. On May 27, the Los Angeles Times reported O'Bagy, in her capacity as political director for the Syrian Emergency Task Force, said in a telephone interview from Turkey that McCain's office approached the task force two weeks earlier to ask if it could arrange for him to meet with Syrian rebel leaders in Syria. O'Bagy, who accompanied McCain on the senator's May trip to the Middle East, told the newspaper McCain met with FSA commanders in two meetings in Gaziantep, Turkey, and in one meeting about a half mile inside the Syrian border at the Bab Salameh border crossing. O'Bagy further confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that Gen. McCain asked the FSA commanders how they planned to reduce the presence of Islamic extremists in Syrian rebel ranks, O'Bagy told the newspaper. In recent weeks, O'Bagy and Moustafa have been conducting a media blitz on behalf of the Syrian Emergency Task Force, including interviews with NPR, Fox News, RT, Thom Hartmann's radio show, Foreign Policy Magazine and MSNBC, arguing that the FSA is the "moderate" rebel group the U.S. should support in Syria.
