PNAC* members Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith ran a newly created office in the Pentagon called "Office For Special Plans"
In this office they cherry-picked bogus intelligence to connect Saddam to 9/11.

Thousands of allied military casualties, millions of civilians killed or displaced, trillions of dollars spent and we're back in the same place, if not in a worse position of Neocon/Zionist domination of the US foreign policy.
*PNAC was essentially a Neocon/Zionist think tank headed by Richard Perle that published papers for Netanyahu in the 1990's based on using the US military to reshape the Middle East. [link]
