I got your war right here
The emerging possibility that the White House Iraq Group (WHIG) may come under investigation would ensure that all the prewar planning and information warfare would make it into Fitzgerald's subpoena-powered hands.
By way of contextualizing just what that means, Digby points to a report "written by Colonel Sam Gardiner who identified 50 false news stories created and leaked by a secretive White House propaganda apparatus."
In it, Gardiner writes that an aggressive information warfare campaign was necessary as: "Washington and London did not trust the peoples of their democracies to come to the right decisions..."
Digby writes: "It was this story that the White House didn't want exposed and when Joe Wilson started making noises about Dick Cheney and yellowcake, they got very nervous."
Bonus: Following this post, Digby has one you just want to scoop up and parade around to blog-doubters. Just try to find a column or editorial as well-argued.
Responding to a challenge over the distinction between supporting the Iraq War with a slim chance of success or no chance, Digby essentially deconstructs the framing used to sell the war to those on the fence. (Hullabaloo)
