The Great Media Intelligence Failure of 2004

Lambert at Corrente has Sid Blumenthal calling the White House on their lies.

Bruce Hardcastle was a senior officer for the Middle East for the Defence Intelligence Agency. When Bush insisted that Saddam was actively and urgently engaged in a nuclear weapons programme and had renewed production of chemical weapons, the DIA reported otherwise. According to Patrick Lang, the former head of human intelligence at the CIA, Hardcastle “told [the Bush administration] that the way they were handling evidence was wrong.” The response was not simply to remove Hardcastle from his post: “They did away with his job,” Lang says. “They wanted only liaison officers … not a senior intelligence person who argued with them.”

A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest…
