” ‘It [the Bush Administration’s case for the Iraq invasion] was not bad intelligence. It was much more. It was an orchestrated effort. It began before the war, was a major effort during the war, and continues as post-conflict distortions,’ wrote [retired Air Force Colonel and military analyst Sam] Gardiner in a fifty-six-page self-published report [that was posted to the Internet on October 8, 2003 titled ‘Truth from These Podia’]. …It was a $200 million PR campaign to deceive the American public.”
