In 2004, the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee, including 8 Republicans and 7 Democrats, issued a report on "Prewar Intelligence Assessments on Iraq" and unanimously concluded: "The Committee did not find any evidence that intelligence analysts changed their judgments as a result of political pressure, altered or produced intelligence products to conform with Administration policy, or that anyone even attempted to coerce, influence or pressure analysts to do so." In 2015, more than 50 U.S. intelligence analysts formally reported to the Defense Department Inspector General that their assessments were altered by the Obama administration to downplay the threat of ISIS.
