Powell lies finally coming out in mainstream media
    #2009711 - 10/14/03 11:12 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

The person responsible for analyzing the Iraqi weapons threat for Colin Powell says the Secretary of State misinformed Americans during his speech at the U.N. last winter.

Greg Thielmann tells Correspondent Scott Pelley that at the time of Powell?s speech, Iraq didn?t pose an imminent threat to anyone ? not even its own neighbors. ??I think my conclusion [about Powell?s speech] now is that it?s probably one of the low points in his long distinguished service to the nation,? says Thielmann.

Thielmann also tells Pelley that he believes the decision to go to war was made first and then the intelligence was interpreted to fit that conclusion. ??The main problem was that the senior administration officials have what I call faith-based intelligence,? says Thielmann.
?They knew what they wanted the intelligence to show. They were really blind and deaf to any kind of countervailing information the intelligence community would produce. I would assign some blame to the intelligence community and most of the blame to the senior administration officials.?

Steve Allinson and a dozen other U.N. inspectors in Iraq also watched Powell?s speech. ?Various people would laugh at various times [during Powell?s speech] because the information he was presenting was just, you know, didn't mean anything -- had no meaning,? says Allinson.

Pelley asks, ?When the Secretary finished the speech, you and the other inspectors turned to each other and said what?? Allinson responds, ??They have nothing.??
