CIA Probe Finds Secret Pentagon Group Manipulated Intelligence on Iraqi Threat

Jason Leopold is charging that a "half-dozen former CIA agents investigating prewar intelligence have found that a secret Pentagon committee [the Office of Special Plans], set up by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in October 2001, manipulated reams of intelligence information prepared by the spy agency on the so-called Iraqi threat and then delivered it to top White House officials who used it to win support for a war in Iraq."

This is a not a revelation, but I suppose it's worth pushing until someone musters the energy to call the Bushies on it.
