Soldier for the Truth - Exposing Bush's talking-points war:Yahoo!!
This story has been on Yahoo since last night. Please take the time to rate it and pass it on....OSP! OSP! OSP!

<snip>In August of 2002, the expanded Iraq desk found new spaces and moved into them. It was told to us that this was now to be known as the Office of Special Plans. The Office of Special Plans would take issue with those who say they were doing intelligence. They would say they were developing policy for the Office of the Secretary of Defense for the invasion of Iraq.

But developing policy is not the same as developing propaganda and pushing a particular agenda. And actually, thats more what they really did. They pushed an agenda on Iraq, and they developed pretty sophisticated propaganda lines which were fed throughout government, to the Congress, and even internally to the Pentagon to try and make this case of immediacy. This case of severe threat to the United States.

4. It's "local LA" news (WTF?). Use this link to write them,

Tell them to make it a national story (and thank them for putting it out in the first place).
