Elizabeth O’Bagy

From understandingwar.org (Institute for the Study of War)

  • “The Institute for the Study of War has learned and confirmed that, contrary to her representations, Ms. Elizabeth O’Bagy does not in fact have a Ph.D. degree from Georgetown University. ISW has accordingly terminated Ms. O’Bagy’s employment, effective immediately.”

While some of the “small print” may be up for debate, there is no denying the Syrian Emergency Task Force referred to her as “Dr. O’Bagy” when she had yet to complete her studies.  Now I can understand a little excitement once her studies were completed, but this affiliation with the SETF was pre-graduation and their statement was pre-graduation.  Yes, there is a fine line…a very fine red line.
