    DoD Report Appears to Confirm Downing Street Memo
    By Jason Leopold
    t r u t h o u t | Report

    Friday 09 February 2007

    A long-awaited report on the veracity of pre-war Iraq intelligence has found that a secretive policy shop exaggerated the Iraqi threat, providing the White House with cherry-picked information about links between Iraq and al Qaeda. The shop, operating out of the Pentagon, was set up by then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Its goal was to lay the groundwork for a pre-emptive military strike against Iraq.

    The report would appear to confirm British intelligence assertions that surfaced in a document widely referred to as the Downing Street Memo that the facts against the threat posed by Iraq were being fixed around the Bush administration's policy leading up to the invasion of Iraq.

    Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.) said the report is a "a devastating condemnation of the activities of the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy. Those activities supported the Bush administration's misleading case for war against Iraq."

    The Department of Defense Office of the Inspector General produced the report, which focuses largely on the work of former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith. Feith's Office of Special Plans sent the Bush administration bogus intelligence on Iraq's weapons program and ties to terrorist organizations that supported the administration's policy.

    An executive summary of the report was released late Thursday by Senator Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Levin has spent the past two years battling the former Senate Republican leadership to conclude its so-called Phase II investigation into pre-war Iraq intelligence.

    pick a card, any card.... on this forum, or any other... the CON men and war enthusiasts everywhere have gone from:

    "the weapons are there, and WILL be found!!!!"

    to
    "they were moved to Syria"

    to
    "the ends justify the means, Saddam had to go"

    and now to

    "this is just vindictive payback that will hurt our nation... let's look to solutions, not blame"

    mmm.... yeah....

    ahhh...got it.....


    This investigation should end this arguement that this invasion was planned long before 9-11. The fact that the republican majority was stalling on it tells us how afraid they are of the truth coming to light.

    make no muistake about it. from Bush's limo getting pelted with eggs on the way to being sworn in to the troop build up in Iraq today....this has been one GIANT plan.....and it has been right there for us to see, read and pick apart the whole time. Few of us have still taken the time to read it and connect the dots. People are aftraid to learn the truth. Sometimes the truth is right ini front of you.
