Iraq threat exaggerated by Pentagon

According to a recently released probe, the Bush administration desperately wanted to invade Iraq, and when intelligence said Saddam Hussein posed little threat the Pentagon deliberately embellished Iraq’s threat to please the Bush administration.

The inquiry, headed up by Senator Carl Levin (D), said that intelligence could only find a “relatively weak” connection between Hussein and al-Qaeda. Levin said the Pentagon overstated the threat posed by Iraq to “support the policy goal of removing Saddam Hussein.”

I'm not surprised by this at all. Just one more reason to vote out Dubya!
