Panel discussion to cover pre-war intelligence

Poughkeepsie Journal

U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey, D-Hurley, will take part in a panel discussion today in New York City regarding the alleged manipulation of pre-war intelligence by the Bush administration.

The event, titled, ‘‘Torture and Lies: Who is Accountable? From Abu Ghraib to the Downing Street Minutes,’’ is being held from 2 to 4 p.m. at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, at 2 W. 64th St. in Manhattan.

Hinchey will be joined on the panel by former New York congresswoman Liz Holtzman and Randi Rhodes, a host on Air America Radio.

The forum is being held in commemoration of the third anniversary of the meeting at #10 Downing Street in London, which generated the so-called ‘‘Downing Street Memo.’’ The memo purportedly offers proof the United States and Great Britain secretly agreed to invade Iraq in the summer of 2002, well before seeking a U.N. resolution to remove Saddam Hussein from power.

The magazine ‘‘The Nation’’ and the Web site are sponsoring the event.
