Senators wonder if Pentagon broke federal law
CNN |
"The leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Sunday that they want to know whether the Pentagon knowingly withheld information from the CIA and ran a secret intelligence-gathering operation in building a case for invading Iraq... [Sen. Jay Rockefeller] questioned whether [Douglas Feith] overstepped legal bounds with a unit he oversaw, the Office of Special Plans, created to analyze intelligence. 'There's always the question whether or not he was running a secret intelligence operation that bypassed the entire intelligence community. And the law says you've got to inform the intelligence community of anything that you're doing,' Rockefeller said... The Pentagon has argued that the Office of Special Plans did not gather intelligence but rather assessed existing intelligence."
