Judge rules agent's lawsuit against CIA can proceed


(Gold9472: This is the first I've heard of this. I know that it has been speculated about that when Dick Cheney made his unprecedented trips to CIA headquarters, it was to "fix the facts around the policy." However, I didn't know someone was fired for not doing it.)


WASHINGTON A federal judge says a fired C-I-A agent can continue with a lawsuit challenging his dismissal from the agency.

The one-time covert agent -- identified only as Doe -- contends he was fired for refusing to alter intelligence the Bush administration wanted to cite in making its case for going to war with Iraq.

President Bush justified the war on grounds that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. No such weapons have been found.

The judge ruled the former agent has the right to argue that his dismissal was based on allegedly false information placed in his file.

The plaintiff claims he was the target of two sham investigations launched by the C-I-A prior before his firing in September 2004.

Frontline: The Dark Side


Frontline interviews ex CIA and govnt officials about the pre-war manipulation of intel. Supposedly even Bush thought the case for war was thin, and of course Powell did too.

Did that special mention this CIA agent?

No, this article doesn't give a name other than "Doe". But the documentary above features tons of people in the "know" who knew what went down with the intel fixing for the war.
