McCain Hires Syrian Analyst Who Lied About Her PhD

Sen. John McCain has hired Elizabeth O'Bagy, the Syria analyst in Washington who was fired for padding her credentials, according to The Cable. She begins work Monday as a legislative assistant in McCain's office.

"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. "I look forward to her joining my office."

O'Bagy, who is 26, was fired after it was confirmed that she had padded her resume with a Ph.D. from Georgetown University. She also failed to disclose in for a pro-Syrian rebels op-ed in WSJ that she was part of a pro-Syrian rebel political group, the Syrian Emergency Task Force.


  1. Surprise, Surprise, Surprise. McCain is so crony, he does not even try to hide it anymore.

  2. Isn't jennifer rubin supposed to be outraged about this type of thing?

  3. Payback for a job well done.

  4. Disclosures? That's so long gone...especially amongst the D.C. crowd

  5. This is perfect. McCain, a liar about his war record, hires a liar about her academic record. And now they can work together to lie us into another war. Awesome. I hope Jerry Wolfgang joins them as a press agent. He always knows the proper talking points.

  6. Meet dumb and dumber.
