Some information from Frank Rich writing behind the NYTimes paywall, via the indispensable Ed Cone:
Very little has been written about the White House Iraq Group, or WHIG. Its inception in August 2002, seven months before the invasion of Iraq, was never announced. Only much later would a newspaper article or two mention it in passing, reporting that it had been set up by Andrew Card, the White House chief of staff. Its eight members included Mr. Rove, Mr. Libby, Condoleezza Rice and the spinmeisters Karen Hughes and Mary Matalin. Its mission: to market a war in Iraq.
We should be hearing more about this if the Plame investigation has any integrity.
By the way, if I had a dartboard, Karen Hughes‘ face would be in the middle of it. That woman drives me crazy.
