Systematic deception

Posted by: Hammer / 12:38 PM

Here's a good timeline describing the Bush administration's continuing efforts to mislead America throughout 2003-4. Trailers were found in Iraq in April, 2003. By May, the DIA had determined the trailers were not involved in biological weapon manufacture. In February, 2004, George Tenet is still suggesting the trailers were mobile weapons labs.

The trailers did not stain a blue dress; nothing to harm democracy here.


If the May 27 DIA report has never been released, how does the Washington Post know that it said the trailers were definitely not used for biological weapons?

From the story, not the graphic:

The authors of the reports were nine U.S. and British civilian experts -- scientists and engineers with extensive experience in all the technical fields involved in making bioweapons -- who were dispatched to Baghdad by the Defense Intelligence Agency for an analysis of the trailers. Their actions and findings were described to a Washington Post reporter in interviews with six government officials and weapons experts who participated in the mission or had direct knowledge of it.

None would consent to being identified by name because of fear that their jobs would be jeopardized.
