    I may have missed a link, but no conversation adds up to fact.

    The point at issue was what George Tenet believed. I can state unequivocally that he believed the Iraqis had WMD.

    I see, now that you can't deny that it came from the administration....you're going to claim he had nothing to do with it anyways?

    lol, that's pretty desperate.

    Not clear at all. The reason the snippets are so short is to exclude the context that shows the complexities. It's dishonest editing, in fact.

    No, that wasn't the issue. The issue was the president recognized a lack of evidence but was satisfied by a mere slam dunk comment, one Tenet said was meant not fir the evidence,but that it would sell. Such comment would not work for an honest rationale.

    You miss the point again. I have no interest in what was said later. At the time they believed it.
