Pentagon office produced `alternative' intelligence on Iraq

A special unit run by former Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfelds top policy aide inappropriately produced alternative intelligence reports that wrongly concluded that Saddam Husseins regime had cooperated with al-Qaida, a Pentagon investigation has determined. The Department of Defense Inspector Generals Office found that former Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith and his staff had done nothing illegal or unauthorized.
