Raw Story has broken a story about how the Senate Intelligence chairman "fixed intelligence" and "diverted blame" from the Whitehouse over Iraq.
The bottomline: key leaders betrayed our trust. They used claims for a need for secrecy as a means to fix intelligence and secure a preconceived policy objective -- going to war with Iraq.
They knew that, had the intelligence been handled openly and honestly, they were unlikely to achieve their objective.
Now that the deceptions and manipulations of our leaders are coming to light, how will any future leader be able to secure our trust if it is ever really necessary to restrict the free flow of information to key leaders?
