More of the same

This article is upsetting. The interesting thing about it is that you don't get much new knowledge from reading it--everything that comes out is denied by someone, so where's the truth?

"According to the report, CIA officials tried to tell the agency's top officials that Curveball was a suspected fabricator and may have been mentally unstable. The new information includes an alleged warning in a late-night phone call to the agency's former director, George Tenet.

Tenet and his top deputy have both released statements emphatically denying that they received such warnings. Tenet called it "deeply disturbing" that the information didn't get to him."

So George Tenet, who called the WMD debacle a "slam-dunk case," either did or did not get a warning that some of the "intelligence" was unreliable. Great. Everything is clear now.

Democrats continued to do what they've been doing--nothing. But they're still angry, and they still have questions!

"Other lawmakers are angrier. "As far as I am concerned, the CIA threw us a curve ball," said Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan, also a member of the Intelligence Committee."

Thanks, Carl. Maybe next time a war is started for no reason, you'll be livid or outraged instead of just angry.

"Where is the truth?" Hidden in plain sight, as usual. Bush was determined to invade Iraq. He got the "intelligence" he wanted, to justify what he had already decided to do. Everything else is details, and some of the finer details, as you imply, are currently unknowable and probably going to stay that way. The Democrats with a few shining exceptions, rolled over for Bush because of the perceived political clout of a "war president." And the American public ratified the whole deal last November 2. Kyrie eleison.
