The U.S. intelligence community buckled sooner in 2002 than previously
reported to Bush administration pressure for data justifying an invasion of
Iraq, according to a documents posting on the Web today by National Security
Archive senior fellow John Prados.

The documents suggest that the public relations push for war came before the
intelligence analysis, which then conformed to public positions taken by
Pentagon and White House officials. For example, a July 2002 draft [1] of
the "White Paper" ultimately issued by the CIA in October 2002 [2] actually
pre-dated the National Intelligence Estimate that the paper purportedly
summarized, but which Congress did not insist on until September 2002.

A similar comparison between a declassified draft [3] and the final version
[4] of the British government's "White Paper" on Iraq weapons of mass
destruction adds to evidence that the two nations colluded in the effort to
build public support for the invasion of Iraq. Dr. Prados concludes that the
new evidence tends to support charges raised by former White House press
secretary Scott McClellan and by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
in its long-delayed June 2008 "Phase II" report on politicization of
