Transcription by Scott Anderson

ECHO CHAMBER PROJECT: Alright. So why don't you go ahead and introduce yourself and your background.
PRADOS: Okay. My name is John Prados. I'm an author and analyst of international security and intelligence issues. I'm a senior analyst with the National Security Archive in Washington, that specializes in declassified government documents. I'm the author of more than twelve books, many of which deal with intelligence and/or national security issues. Most recent one of those books is titled "Hoodwinked." And it covers the run-up to the Iraq war and shows how the Bush administration essentially constructed a theory -- or a story of how Saddam Hussein was an international threat and needed to be destroyed by United States and coalition invasion.
