WHAT DID PRESIDENT BUSH KNOW BEFORE GOING TO WAR WITH IRAQ? - Radioactivity

08/04/04

David Sirota is co-author of a new story in In These Times which shows the Bush administration knew before the war that it was mis-stating the Iraqi threat. The article chronologically juxtaposes pre-war intelligence documents with the Bush administration’s pre-war statements to show that on each major charge, the Bush team ignored warnings that its cases for war were weak. The article dispels the argument http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/07/09/senate.intel.ap/ that the intelligence community is to blame for the dishonesty about weapons of mass destruction and a purported Iraq-al Qaeda connection. Titled “They Knew,� this article was written by David Sirota, Director of Strategic Communications at the American Progress Action Fund, and Christy Harvey, Deputy Director of Strategic Communications.
