ABSTRACT
This article focuses on intelligence used by the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush leading to the Iraq war. In Feb. 2002, the Defense Intelligence Agency concluded that captured Al Qaeda commander Ibn Al Shaykh Al Libi was probably lying when he said Saddam Hussein provided chemical and biological weapons to the terrorist group. The Bush administration, however, still used that claim to sell the war. When the story was written in the "New York Times" and "Post," the administration refused to comment, abandoning their central argument for the war in Iraq: a link between Hussein and Al Qaeda.
