Pentagon recalls war talking points document

Thursday June 15, 2006
A one-line email sent to recipients of the Pentagon's Prep book on the Iraq and terror wars attempted to retract the document.
The incredibly lengthy "prep book" for discussion of the Iraq war and US efforts to end terrorism was issued to supporters in Congress, and acquired by RAW STORY. It can be read here.
The 74 page document seems to be an election year guide for Republicans and Democratic supporters of the war, with many of the "points" seeming to be rebuttals to arguments made by opponents of the war.
Other portions seek to categorize opponents of the war as "cut and run" advocates.
The message, acquired by RAW STORY, was just one-sentence long, and follows in its entirety:
From: Scott, Traci CIV OSD LA [mailto:REDACTED BY RAW STORY]
Sent: Wednesday, June 14, 2006 5:41 PM
To: [Redacted by RAW STORY]
Subject: Recall: Prep Book
The sender would like to recall the message, "Prep Book".
