The CIA released a copy of the NIE in 2004 in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, but redacted virtually all of it, citing a threat to national security. Then last year, John Greenewald, who operates The Black Vault, a clearinghouse for declassified government documents, asked the CIA to take another look at the October 2002 NIE to determine whether any additional portions of it could be declassified.
For the first time, the public can now read the hastily drafted CIA document that led Congress to pass a joint resolution authorizing the use of military force in Iraq, a costly war launched March 20, 2003 that was predicated on “disarming” Iraq of its (non-existent) WMD, overthrowing Saddam Hussein, and “freeing” the Iraqi people.

Most of the naysayers here are not brainwashed. We think for ourselves and Q sounds far-fetched and has failed on a bunch of predictions, before they stopped making them, for the obvious reason.
You propping up that 4-6% strawman that Q lent you makes it seem like you might be a pot or maybe a kettle.

It's okay, Daskakik. To each his own. This "dig" is deep and complicated on so many levels. It's a lot easier to naysay than grab a shovel and dig. (4-6%...)
It always baffles me why certain posters show up to fume, spit and belittle those that use Q drops to open doors to questions that need answers.
