Carter: White House Manipulated Iraq Intel

The Bush Administration's prewar claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction were "MANIPULATED, at least" to mislead the American people, former President Jimmy Carter said Wednesday.

"Protocol" has been thrown out of the window.
The decision to go to war was the culmination of a long-term plan to attack Iraq that resulted from the first President Bush not taking out Saddam, Carter said on NBC's "TODAY" show.
These statements were not made at some weird international conference on human rights: They were made on the motherf*ing "Today" show.

Which means that President Carter's feelings were heard by many average bears.

Carter also said he supports the move by Senate Democrats to force an update on the investigation into prewar intelligence on Iraq, and says Republicans have been dragging their feet on the investigation.
The Dems are on the same page.
Democrats Tuesday used a rarely invoked Senate rule to force a secret session as a way to dramatize their assertions that the Bush administration misused intelligence in the run-up to the war in Iraq.

A bipartisan committee has been appointed to review the investigation.
Under the Bushies, "investigations" tend to focus on "avoiding future mistakes" rather than "past transgressions."

It'll be interesting to see how this investigation shakes out: Not sure the Repubs can avoid it, 'coz too many people are asking questions.

And too many Establishment folks - like Carter - are taking shots.

Next up...President Clinton?

More later.
