Forging Our Way into War

way_of__the_world.jpgLast week, there were headlines about a letter that linked Saddam Hussein's Iraq to al-Qaeda, and seemed to justify the Iraq invasion. But the real story was that the letter had been forged by the CIA on written orders from the Bush White House and back-dated to make it appear that its writer had told Saddam that Mohamed Atta, ringleader of the 911 hijackers, had trained in Iraq. Ron Suskind, a Pulitzer Prize winner for previous work, is author of The Way of the World. The White House calls his report "gutter journalism."
