FOI delivers: Iraq invasion plan 'delusional'

We are trying to break the habit of posting media reports based on documents released under Freedom of Information but this is a really important one.

The National Security Archive (NSA) at George Washington University, has, two years after lodging an FOI application, obtained a slide show about plans to invade Iraq prepared by the top military brass in 2002, a year before the invasion and used to brief the White House and Donald Rumsfeld. The "plan" envisaged 5,000 US troops would remain by December 2006.

The rest as they say is history.....

Under the current Australian Government, material about our thinking on these issues in 2002 is likely to be available in 2032!
