Bush administration officials have insisted on a link between the Iraqi regime and terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Intelligence agencies, however, concluded there was none.And
It concludes that postwar findings do not support a 2002 intelligence community report that Iraq was reconstituting its nuclear program, possessed biological weapons or ever developed mobile facilities for producing biological warfare agents.And the sharp, intelligent Republican comeback:
Republicans countered that there was little new in the report and Democrats were trying to score election-year points with it.I'm not going to say I feel stupid or misled; I don't like this man and never believe much of anything he or his council have to say. And, it is, at base, nothing new--people have been saying he lied forever. But for his damned party to dismiss this as election year tactics? To act as if they have nothing to explain to the American people at large or their own band of clueless constituents (how anyone ever, much less still, believes in these people is beyond me)?
***P.S. Did y'all know "prewar assessments of Iraq 'were a tragic intelligence failure'."?***
