"By January 2003, NSA [National Security Agency] was turning its giant ears toward the undecided members of the UN Security Council. Three months earlier, largely as a result of its avalanche of phony intelligence, the Bush administration won the support of both houses of Congress for a war with Iraq. With the Country largely convinced, Bush reluctantly went along with [Secretary of State] Colin Powell's recommendation to convince the rest of the world through a United Nations resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq." [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
