Who cares? All of the intelligence agencies were deceived. It happens. It is my opinion that we were deceived because Hussain was deceived. Very few people wanted their wives tossed alive into a wood chipper or their kids sent to Saddam's rape rooms. So they made it up.Not only that, but what happened to those who pointed out the faults and fallacies in the Bush administration's claims about WMD's?
Who cares. There are many opinions about intelligence work. Not every one of my assessments was accepted by decision makers. It happens.The Downing Street Memo proves that the Bush administration had been informed that its intel was flawed, but that they were determined to go to war anyway.
