Frostburg State University’s United Campus Ministry will present Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, a Pentagon insider who will be presenting “Lies of the Iraq War” Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Lane University Center Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall.
While she worked at the Pentagon, Kwiatkowski’s duties included desk officer and speechwriter for the director of the National Security Agency, and her final assignment was in the Office of the Secretary of Defense as a Policy directorate. Kwiatkowski is well known for chastising the Pentagon’s Office of Special Plans with her insider account on how it manipulated intelligence to justify the invasion of Iraq. Previously, Kwiatkowski served on the Air Force Staff, Operations Directorate, at the Pentagon and worked for the Director of the National Security Agency at Fort Meade, Md. She writes regularly for the libertarian Web site LewRockwell.com and has written a bi-weekly column, “Without Reservation,” for the Web site MilitaryWeek.com. During her presentation, Kwiatkowski will discuss the corrupting political influence on the course of military intelligence leading up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
