Remember the secret Pentagon report that wasn’t secret, wasn’t prepared by the Pentagon, and didn’t actually rise to the status of a “report”, except in the minds of confused Guardian/Observer journalists? Former Clinton apologist turned Guardian columnist Sidney Blumenthal proves himself worthy of his new position:
In April 2004 the Strategic Studies Institute of the Army War College produced a report on the metrics of the Rumsfeld doctrine: Toppling Saddam: Iraq and American Military Transformation. It concluded that the swift victory over Saddam was achieved by overwhelming technological superiority and Iraqi weakness, and therefore using operation Iraqi Freedom as “evidence” for Rumsfeld’s “transformation proposals could be a mistake”. The Pentagon has refused to release the study.
Refused to release? It’s available right here (see third entry under Other Topics).
