Among other findings, the 900-page Congressional report on 9/11 reveals that U.S. intelligence had no evidence that Iraq or Saddam Hussein had any involvement in the attacks or connection to Al Qaida.
Former Democratic Georgia Sen. Max Cleland who served on the congressional committee said, “The administration sold the connection to scare the pants off the American people and justify the war. What you’ve seen here is the manipulation of intelligence for political ends.”
Cleland also charged the Bush administration purposely delayed the release of the 9/11 report until after the Iraq invasion.
Cleland said, “Had this report come out in January like it should have done, we would have known these things before the war in Iraq, which would not have suited the administration.”
