Bush Administration Rewrites History
I'm hearing a lot of "we were victims of bad intelligence" coming from the Bush admin lately re the invasion. Seriously, can memories be that short? It's difficult not to forget all the hype leading up to the invasion: senior administration officials were absolutely determined to invade Iraq. Hardly a case of "What choice did we have, the CIA kept insisting that there were proven links to Al Qaeda, and proven weapons of mass destruction! So we had no alternative." OK, the senate report was limited to the issue of the reliability of intelligence, and not the issue of the role of the White House. Seems to me we should be hearing more about the latter. I dont' buy the implication that the Bush-boys were mere victims of misinformation.
