According to the Politico, Ron Suskind's new book claims "that the White House ordered the CIA to forge a back-dated, handwritten letter from the head of Iraqi intelligence to Saddam Hussein." The purpose was to falsify an operational connection between Hussein's regime and 9/11 ringleader Mohammad Atta to justify the Iraq war. Stephen Hayes counters: "To believe Suskind's account, then, you would have to believe: 1) that the Bush administration ordered the CIA, in writing, to forge a letter that was a rather obvious hoax; 2) that the CIA, hostile to the Bush administration and leaking against it at every turn, eagerly complied."
