The DoD released a “summary”:http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/documents/DODIG_execsummary_020907.pdf of the report. Essentially, it says that Feith and Co. did shit that they should not have done, but it wasn’t illegal. OSD’s response can be found “here.”:http://www.realcities.com/mld/krwashington/news/nation/16656258.htm?source=rss&channel=krwashington_nation [Via “Spencer Ackerman”:http://www.tpmmuckraker.com/archives/002518.php ]
For more, read these articles from the “_WP_”:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/02/08/AR2007020802387_pf.html and the “_NYT_.”:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/10/washington/10feith.html?_r=1&oref=login Ackerman also has “some details”:http://www.tpmmuckraker.com/archives/002530.php about the SSCI’s investigation.
Given that one of the “slides”:http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/368/clowns-on-parade from their “Iraq is friends with al Qaeda” briefing is a poster child for Teh Stupid, the fact that “some of these same geniuses”:http://www.totalwonkerr.net/1209/npr-on-iran-intel are apparently doing what looks like “comparable work on Iran”:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/02/09/AR2007020902294.html ought to make everyone feel, like, really great and stuff.
