On October 8, 2002, Knight-Ridder journalists Warren P. Strobel, Jonathan S. Landay and John Walcott wrote: ” ‘A growing number of military officers, intelligence professionals and diplomats in [Bush’s] own government privately have deep misgivings about the administration’s double-time march toward war. These officials charge that administration hawks have exaggerated evidence of the threat that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein poses–including distorting his links to the al-Qaida terrorist network–have overstated the amount of international support for attacking Iraq and have downplayed the potential repercussions of a new war in the Middle East.’ ”
