CIA Officer "forced to change WMD report"

Washington Post story

It is reported that a lawsuit has begun involving a CIA man who was allegedly run out of the services because he didn't agree with the official version. Key:
" Those investigations, the lawsuit asserts, were "initiated for the sole purpose of discrediting him and retaliating against him for questioning the integrity of the WMD reporting . . . and for refusing to falsify his intelligence reporting to support the politically mandated conclusion" of matters that are redacted in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit marks the first public instance in which a CIA employee has charged directly that agency officials pressured him to produce intelligence to support the administration's prewar position that Iraq's weapons of mass destruction were a grave and gathering threat, and to suppress information that ran counter to that view."
One day, we'll get to the bottom of this.
