Pentagon Manipulation

Please take the time to thank Sen. Carl Levin (D – MI) for this.

A “very damning” report by the Defense Department’s inspector general depicts a Pentagon that purposely manipulated intelligence in an effort to link Saddam Hussein to al-Qaida in the runup to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, says the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“That was the argument that was used to make the sale to the American people about the need to go to war,” said Sen. Carl Levin (news, bio, voting record), D-Mich. He said the Pentagon’s work, “which was wrong, which was distorted, which was inappropriate … is something which is highly disturbing.”

No weapons of mass destruction and over 600,000 dead Iraqis. Was the war worth all that?
