But the piece had also come under fire for misrepresenting her affiliations. Originally the op-ed only listed O’Bagy, 26, as only “a senior analyst” at the ISW, later adding a clarification that disclosed her connection to a Syrian rebel advocacy group.
She's 26? The administration is citing a 26 year old liar for the intellectual under-pinning of their Syria policy?

She should run for POTUS rather than write op-eds. No transcripts required.

She should claim to be Native American and run for Congress.

Very nice

But if you went with "Surely you can't be Syrias?"

It would have been even better.

O’Bagy told POLITICO’s Kate Brannen in an interview Monday that she had submitted and defended her dissertation and was waiting for Georgetown University to confer her degree.


If true, then it was probably lame to fire her. At that point, it's just a matter of waiting for the transcripts to be updated.

Wow.

That's horrible.

ehh...if true, it's not quite so bad. If it's at all like an M.S. you typically don't submit until your advisor tells you your good.

Reading the article it sounds like she jumped the gun on claiming that PhD.

Keep in mind that Obama cited living in India as a pre-teen and visiting Pock-ee-stan while in college as examples of his foreign policy experience.

Obama pretty much delegated foreign policy to Biden....according to many who've documented this admin.

I mean, I always listed it as "expected date of conferral" on my resume'. But it's really just a formality when you get that far into the process.

She can always run for senate in Massachusetts. They don't care about lying on your resume there.
