Elizabeth O'Bagy, a researcher who led the organization's Syria Team for much of 2013, advocated more forceful strategies while based at ISW, including pushing direct U.S. attacks on critical regime infrastructure and supplying the rebels with heavy weaponry. O'Bagy outlined this case in a controversial August 2013 op-ed for the Wall Street Journal in which she also argued that reports of extremist involvement in Syria's armed opposition were overblown-a claim that was subsequently repeated by intervention advocates like Sen.

More controversially, the Journal initially failed to disclose that O'Bagy had been a paid consultant-with the title "political director"-for the Syrian Emergency Task Force, an interest group deeply linked to the Syrian rebels that has advocated similar position's to O'Bagy's. "O'Bagy seems to pass herself off as an impartial observer of the situation," said one Center for Security Policy staffer quoted by the Daily Caller. "Her access to Congress, intelligence services and to think tanks should be regarded as what it really is, which is a reflection of the Syrian rebels' cause and aspirations."[3] ISW stood by O'Bagy's impartiality, but subsequently fired her after learning that she had exaggerated her credentials in claiming that she had earned a PhD from Georgetown when in fact she was not even enrolled in a program.[4]

Contrast this with the myopic piece by Elizabeth O'Bagy: On the Front Lines of Syria's Civil War, which appears to follow the Obama Administration line that bombing may help the FSA with Saudi supplied weapons to create enclaves that would protect the various ethnic and religious minorities.

O'Bagy who is a senior analyst at The Institute for the Study of War bases her assessment on observations of what is occurring on the ground in Syria.
An area that perhaps, Ms. O'Bagy didn't visit was the Kurdish heartland in Syria's northeast that is teetering on the break of a major humanitarian disaster because of al-Qaeda threats and conflicting divisions among the Syrian Kurdish leadership.
Ms. O'Bagy's comments belie the tragedy unfolding in Syria's Northeast-the heartland of the country's Kurds.
O'Bagy praises the FSA fighting contingents and the help from the Saudis using Croatian supplied 1990's gear in Syria's south.
