From CNN.com – LONDON, England (AP) — A former senior U.S. State Department official says he has come to doubt whether President George W. Bush’s administration presented an honest intelligence case for the war in Iraq.
“You begin to speculate, you begin to wonder — Was this intelligence spun? Was it politicized? Was it cherry-picked? Did in fact the American people get fooled? I’m beginning to have my concerns,” Lawrence Wilkerson, chief of staff for former Secretary of State Colin Powell, said in an interview broadcast Tuesday.
He is beginning to wonder? Where has he been? What world has he been livin’ in? Of course, the intelligence was spun. Cheney more than any other figure in the White House saw the raw data. He was the one who picked out the most crazy, the most scary stuff to present to the American public. Congress never saw the raw data only the data that was put together by the administration (CIA).
