O’Bagy fired Again? Syrian Task Force now Staff of One

On September 3rd, Senator John McCain referenced the work of Elizabeth O’Bagy, citing her column in the Wall Street Journal to help make his case for an attack on Syria. A short time later, her work at the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF) indicated she wasn’t the objective observer she was portrayed to be.

The staff has now gone from four to one in one week.

As of September 16th, Mouaz Moustafa is the only member of the SETF staff…

Now, thanks to Moustafa’s increasingly alarming connections, SETF may eventually become the first organization in history to have a staff of zero.

Here is McCain, the one-man SETF wrecking crew in the Senate hearing that started it all:
