BUYING THE WAR: Article Library

PRESS COVERAGE BY OUTLET

Below you'll find citations and links to many of the reports featured in "Buying the War." For chronological coverage please see the Interactive Timeline. You'll also find some post-March 2003 coverage of Iraq intelligence, government documents, opinion polls and sites for further research on the media and politics.

Of special note are the multiple mea culpas issued by major media outlets as the extent of erroneous reporting became clear. On May 26, 2004, THE NEW YORK TIMES editors published a critical analysis of its own reporting on Iraq intelligence. Read "From the Editors: The Times and Iraq." The TIMES also collected many of the questionable stories in an online archive.

Like THE NEW YORK TIMES, the WASHINGTON POST published a post-mortem on its Iraq intelligence coverage in 2004. In this case, the analysis focused on the tendency of skeptical articles to appear on the interior pages of the paper rather than as front page headline stories. Howard Kurtz's "The Post on WMDS: An Inside Story" made page 1 of the August 12, 2004 edition.

Among prominent magazines, both VANITY FAIR and THE NEW REPUBLIC published articles and editorials addressing the accuracy of their pre-war coverage. VANITY FAIR's David Rose went back to talk to prominent neoconservatives in January 2007's "Neo Culpa." THE NEW REPUBLIC asked itself the question, "Were We Wrong?" Its answer didn't satisfy some readers who called their response inadequate in a letter to the editor published by THE NEW REPUBLIC in a subsequent issue.

CBS's 60 MINUTES, which had featured the claims of Ahmed Chalabi and other Iraqi defectors, featured Chalabi again in March of 2004 at which point he told correspondent Leslie Stahl that he wanted to testify in front of Congress to set the record straight. In 2004, the Poynter Institute reported on a speech in which Stahl said, "I look on those two stories as mistakes, journalistic mistakes. I made them, and I regret it." In 2007, PBS's FRONTLINE reflected on the journalistic road to Iraq in "Newswar" and on its own reporting, some of which relied on now discredited sources.

OPINION POLLS

Misperceptions about a link between al Quaeda and Saddam Hussein and the extent of WMDs in Iraq continue to surface in public opinion polls. Track them yourself with the links below.

Iraq, 9/11, Al Qaeda and Weapons of Mass Destruction: What the Public Believes Now, According to Latest Harris Poll, The Harris Poll® #79, October 21, 2004
"More surprising perhaps are the large numbers (albeit not majorities) who believe claims which the president has not made, and which virtually no experts believe to be true:

  • 41 percent believe that Saddam Hussein helped plan and support the hijackers who attacked the U.S. on September 11, 2001.
  • 38 percent believe that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when the U.S. invaded.
  • 37 percent actually believe that several of the hijackers who attacked the U.S. on September 11 were Iraqis."
"Al Qaeda-Hussein Link Is Dismissed," Walter Pincus and Dana Milbank, THE WASHINGTON POST, June 17, 2004
"The finding challenges a belief held by large numbers of Americans about al Qaeda's ties to Hussein. According to a Harris poll in late April, a plurality of Americans, 49 percent to 36 percent, believe 'clear evidence that Iraq was supporting al Qaeda has been found.'"

"Many Americans Still Believe Hussein Had Links to al Qaeda,"THE WALL STREET JOURNAL ONLINE, December 29, 2005

Belief that Iraq Had Weapons of Mass Destruction Has Increased Substantially, The Harris Poll® #57, July 21, 2006
"Despite being widely reported in the media that the U.S. and other countries have not found any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, surprisingly; more U.S. adults (50%) think that Iraq had such weapons when the U.S. invaded Iraq."

"Half of Americans Link Hussein and al-Qaeda," Angus Reid Global Monitor : Polls & Research, January 7, 2007
"Many adults in the United States believe Saddam Hussein collaborated with a terrorist network, according to a poll by Knowledge Networks for the Program on International Policy Attitudes. 32 per cent of respondents think Iraq gave substantial support to al-Qaeda, and 18 per cent think the Iraqi government was directly involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks."
