Top CIA official confesses order to forge Iraq-9/11 letter came on White House stationery

Central Intelligence Agency's former Deputy Chief of Clandestine Operations Robert Richer says a forged letter linking Saddam Hussein to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks was ordered on White House stationery and probably came from the office of Vice President Dick Cheney, according to a new transcript.
"I would probably stand on my, basically, my reputation and say it came from the vice president." --Robert Richer
Breaking a 25 year code of journalistic principles and practices, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Ron Suskind that broke this story has named his sources and posted the transcript of the interview of his sources.

American Conservative Magazine has investigated the forgery story and acknowledged it is correct but blames the forgery on Bush staffer, Doug Feith.
"An extremely reliable and well placed source in the intelligence community has informed me that Ron Suskind’s revelation that the White House ordered the preparation of a forged letter linking Saddam Hussein to al-Qaeda and also to attempts made to obtain yellowcake uranium is correct... "

The level of lies, corruption and shear dishonesty of the Bush Administration is stunning... how can any principled American condone this?

I'm shocked, shocked, I tell you!

But not as shocked as I am that John Edwards had sex with someone other than his wife (same as John McCain, Newt Gingrich, Ronald Reagan, etc.,.) while they were still married.

Of course the fact that Feith and the rest of those scumbags are no longer working there is the equivalent, to the MSM (and DoJ) of "Move along, move along, nothing to see here."
