Doug Feith

Perhaps you don't know this name. Douglas Feith is the man tasked by the Department of Defense (DOD) to run a parallel intelligence operation that Donald Rumsfeld and the Bush Administration could control.

In 2002 the Bush administration found out that they could not adequately control the message from career CIA analysts. CIA analysts tend to be professional. They actually look at the evidence they are presented with. Their opinion on Iraq was that Hussein was contained, had no connection to Bin Laden. and was not a threat to the US.

This message was a problem for an administration that wanted to invade Iraq. So here is the need for a new intelligence operation at the DOD. As I mentioned above, they put Doug Feith in charge of this DOD operation.

Now former CIA employees are beginning to speak up.
