The Lies Behind The War In Iraq

Colin Powell is speaking out in Britain today regarding this story from two days ago.  He is calling for an investigation into how and why false information from a known liar was fed to him via the CIA.

One might wonder why a government with unparalleled spying and intelligence programs would listen to uncorroborated evidence presented by a known liar.  Or for that matter, from a single source.    The answer can’t be more than a few choices.  It’s either gross incompetence, which is a good enough reason not to give an incompetent bureaucracy even more power and money to destroy our liberties and operate with reckless abandon resulting in the death of hundreds of thousands of innocent people, or there is some attempt at twisting the evidence to meet an end objective of war, in which case  our government officials would be subject to criminal prosecution.    Which is it?
