Description

An investigative piece featured in Mother Jones, this article exposes a secret Pentagon unit which was established just weeks after the events of September 11. The unit, known as the Office of Special Plans, passed on intelligence from Iraq's weapons programs and Al Qaeda ties to Vice President Cheney. According the the questionnaire, the report "also traced the links between neo-conservative Washington think tanks that had for years advocated invading Iraq, and the Pentagon unit, which was under the direction of Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz and Undersecretary Douglas J. Feith."
