U.S. Senate report cites intelligence flaws in lead up to Iraq war

clipped from
President George W. Bush and his aides built a public case for war against Iraq by exaggerating available intelligence and ignoring disagreements among spy agencies over Iraq's weapons programs and Saddam Hussein's links to Al Qaeda, according to a Senate report long delayed by partisan squabbling.

"The president and his advisers undertook a relentless public campaign in the aftermath of the attacks to use the war against Al Qaeda as a justification for overthrowing Saddam Hussein," said Senator John Rockefeller 4th, the West Virginia Democrat who is chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, in a statement accompanying his committee's 171-page report.
