In an article in Time magazine on April 9, 2006, “Marine Lieutenant General Gregory Newbold, the Pentagon’s top operations officer from 2000 to October 2002…revealed that he retired four months before the invasion [of Iraq] in part because the [Bush] administration had used ‘9/11’s tragedy to hijack our security’ and fight ‘an invented war’ instead of ‘the real enemy, Al Qaeda.’ ”
