These are the words of former State Department intelligence director, Carl Ford, referring to ex-CIA director George Tenet and his deputy John
McLaughlin, for their "fundamentally dishonest" cooking of intelligence to please the White House.
Two former U.S. intelligence analysts -- Ray McGovern and W. Patrick Lang -- argue that the United States can ill afford letting the Iraq War-era
liars off lightly, even if that means taking a hard look back over the past several years:
Lies have consequences.
All those who helped President George W. Bush launch a war of aggression—termed by Nuremberg “the supreme international crime”—have blood
on their hands and must be held accountable. This includes corrupt intelligence officials. Otherwise, look for them to perform the same service in
facilitating war on Iran.
More than 3000 American lives lost, and if we take any life equal valuable, the number is to be counted, if not in, then, decimals of millions.
Because of a "fundamentally dishonest" intelligence.
By the end of the day lives lost for nothing.
Shouldn't there be some consequences for those responsible?
