|Spoke w/ Levin's Office|
I spoke to a charming lady @ Senator Levin's office today. She suggested that Mr. Levin was not who I should talk to- that I should talk to Rockefeller and Roberts instead. The runaround begins.
She did send me this bit that Mr. Levin did in his capacity as an Armed Services Committee member:
Report of an Inquiry into the Alternative Analysis of the Issue of an Iraq-al Qaeda Relationship
by Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) Ranking Member, Senate Armed Services Committee October 21, 2004
As decribed by it's press release:
"The report demonstrates how intelligence relating to the Iraq-al Qaeda relationship was exaggerated by high ranking officials in the Department of Defense to support the Administration’s decision to invade Iraq when the intelligence assessments of the Intelligence Community did not make a sufficiently compelling case. The Intelligence Community’s analysis of the Iraq-al Qaeda relationship as a relatively weak one was as definitive as reliable reporting would permit, and their conclusions were subsequently supported by the 9/11 Commission and the Report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on the U.S. Intelligence Community’s Prewar Intelligence Assessments on Iraq."
