Skip to comments.Politicizing Intelligence – Yet Again
Posted on 09/14/2006 4:41:43 AM PDT by unionblue83
If you thought efforts were over to rewrite history on the lead-up to the war in Iraq and to smear the head of the Iraqi National Congress, Ahmad Chalabi, then think again.
A remarkable pair of reports released last week by the Senate Select committee on Intelligence re-examine for the umpteenth time the pre-war intelligence on Iraqi WMD programs and Saddams alleged ties to al-Qaeda. The reports were produced at the demand of committee Democrats as part of a vast fishing expedition aimed at buttressing their old saw, Bush lied-People died.
Whats remarkable about these reports are not the facts they contain, although they are jammed packed with new information, culled from the more than 40,000 finished intelligence reports produced by CIA on Iraq in the six years leading up to the war.
The absolutely stunning news, totally unreported by the formerly mainstream media, is the scurrilous effort by committee Democrats to falsify the facts, introduce phony and erroneous conclusions, and then parade about on their political high-horse to journalists who never bothered to read the actual reports.
In an unprecedented move for a committee that until 2004 was known for bipartisan efforts to conduct oversight of the intelligence community, the committee chairman Sen. Pat Roberts (R, Ks) actually dissented from the reports published conclusions on intelligence provided by Chalabis Iraqi National Congress, as did most of the majority members.
The full report, accessible as a PDF file here, makes fascinating reading. To understand what actually happened, readers need to turn directly to page 123 of the printed report, which details how the committee arrived at the final version.

In 2002, Kurds presented the CIA with evidence that an offshoot of AQ was in part funded and directed by Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard.

You know, the more I think about this article, the angrier I get.
Roberts has to find a way to get this information out in the public domain more than just a FrontPage article. He should call a major press conference that the media is forced to cover.
And he should sit down with Tony Snow and the president and make sure that this is something Snow talks about during his daily briefings.
It ticks me off also
The Dems think this bs helps them .. if anything it makes me even more determine to make sure they never regain power
I hope a lot of people are feeling the same way.
Friends of mine don't call them DemonRATS for nothing. They lie like a musty, mildewy old rug.
I'm with you but Roberts has not been a strong leader on any of this that I've seen. The bottom line will be people, like you, who keep this information current and then post it when the left makes some outrageous claim based on it.
It's a sad state of affairs as Democrats prove once again they cannot be trusted with national security or protecting USA interests at home or around the world.
Didnt they lose already on Bush lied people died? Why do the dems continue to run losing campaigns?
Morning Sundog :0)
I've been thinking about this all morning, It is afternoon now, and I'm still relatively speechless.
I guess we are all the way down to Ben Franklin's comment, "We have a government, lady, if you can keep it."
I think that is who said it and about what he said, but we are coming to the end of the 'keeping it' part. Someone else said, "The democracy will exist until people realize they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury", I believe it was a Scottish professor.
He underestimated the treachery of those who would vote themselves largesse, for they would follow it with wanton vandalism on the institutions of government.
It is human nature.
