"The Vice President"


According to Colin Powell's former chief of staff the twisting of Iraq war intel, and the success in silencing dissent among senior intellligence officials, is no mystery. It can be summed up in three words:

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson: I'd answer you with two words. Let me put the article in there and make it three. The Vice President.
