Rockefeller Plans Investigations Into Pre-War Intel.

Looks like old Pat Roberts can't slam the door on pre-war shenanigans of people like Douglas Feith, who headed up Cheney's and Rumsfeld's own little Intelligence unit, apparently, the sole purpose of which, was to stove-pipe bullshit to the OVP and provide false or very shady evidence to prosecute a war of choice, AKA; a war of aggression, a crime against peace.

This is an investigation we simply must have.

People who say that it no longer matters how we got into this nightmare, only that we are now there and must determine what to do now, are full of donkey crap.

Of course it matters!

How we got into this horrendous quagmire in Iraq is largely the problem.

As vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) was often outmaneuvered by GOP chair Pat Roberts (R-KS), when it came to prewar intelligence. In response to the Pentagon inspector general's report on the Office of Special Plans, however, Rockefeller is hinting that era is fully closed. From a Rockefeller statement, just released:

The IG has concluded that this office was engaged in intelligence activities. The Senate Intelligence Committee was never informed of these activities. Whether these actions were authorized or not, it appears that they were not in compliance with the law.

“In the coming days, I will carefully review all aspects of the report and will consult with Vice Chairman Bond to determine whether any additional action by the Senate Intelligence Committee is warranted.
