Pentagon Damage Control in Action

Yesterday, the Pentagon announced they weren't going to post online their own report explaining how Saddam Hussein and Al Qaida were not linked. It's well known, of course, that the Bush Administration did everything they could in the run up to the invasion of Iraq to make the U.S. public believe that just the opposite was true, so that the invasion of Iraq was associated in the public's mind with the 9/11 attack.

The Pentagon's inane attempt at suppression and censorship was met with a howl of protest and ridicule, including here at Invictus.

Now, ABC News has said that they have requested and did receive a full copy of the report (said to be five volumes long), and they have posted a link to it (PDF) online.

Given the length of the report, you might want to follow dmd76's suggestion over at Daily Kos: to obtain your own hard copy on a CD, go to the US Joint Forces Command feedback page and request a copy of "IDA Paper P-4151". Because they need your physical address to send you the CD, be sure to include it in your request.
