The article discusses a report, begun in 2004, by the U.S. Senate intelligence committee concerning the accuracy of public statements by U.S. officials about the Iraqi war with regards to the existing intelligence at the time. Initially dominated by Republicans, Democrats took charge of the report in 2006. Anonymous individuals comment on the hard-hitting nature of the report, the article states, including reports that Vice-President Dick Cheney used debunked reports in public.
