Skelton to Army: Release the Rand report.


Today, the New York Times revealed that the Army tried to bury a Rand Corp. post-war study of the Bush administration’s failures to plan for Iraq. “[T[he study’s wide-ranging critique of the White House, the Defense Department and other government agencies was a concern for Army generals, and the Army has sought to keep the report under lock and key,” the Times wrote. Today, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton (D-MO) wrote to Army Secretary Pete Geren calling on him to “rectify this mistake” by releasing “the full, classified version of the report” to Congress and “to allow the publication of the unclassified summary of the report.”
