Book: Clinton didn't read 2002 Iraq report
by UPI

WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., is among several presidential candidates who didn't read a 2002 intelligence report on Iraq before voting for war.

In the latest Hillary biography written by two New York Times reporters, Clinton reportedly didn't read the classified 90-page National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq claiming there was "compelling evidence" that Iraq was developing a nuclear bomb and had concealed stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons from U.N. inspectors, CNN reported.

Members of Congress had to read the report in a secure location but The Washington Post said in 2004 only six senators registered and read it before the vote authorizing the invasion.

Clinton voted in favor, as did former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., who now says it was a mistake. Candidate Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., said he read the report, while a spokesman for candidate Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., told CNN Dodd hadn't read the document.

In response to the allegations in "Her Way: The Hopes and Ambitions of Hillary Rodham Clinton" by Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta, a spokesman told CNN Clinton's advisers had read it and briefed her before the vote.
