    There was no intelligence failure. 700 inspections made by the UN inspection team did not verify a threat, so the UN made the decision an attack was not merited.

    Bush and Dick were the deciders according to the Authorization of Force Resolution.

    Well, now you've denied the article and substituted a headline that's totally off-base. Why did you bother with that source if you claim it is not true. Oh, yeah, the headline.

    Case closed.

    From the article - "He was not asked about allegations that political pressure was brought to bear on the CIA and other intelligence agencies in the run-up to the war."

    This discussion misses the point. The decision to go to war preceded the intelligence. It did not follow it.

    I mean if you're not gonna accept the premise of the article then using that premise to promote the twisted title is downright intellectually dishonest. You don't even believe the article, yet you post it for the twisted headline.

    That discussion misses the point because the lack of a question in an interview (that everyone knows the answer to) doesn't prove anything.

    What Bush said was logically true, but misleading. He was looking at the same intelligence as they were and more.
