None of the clowns making the "I was misled" argument can point to any piece of intelligence that would have been read differently by non-hawks.

I think we're talking about two different things. You're into the technical partisan infighting. I couldn't care less about that. I'm interested in the rationale for the war.

One just has to ask if the Senate Intelligence Committee has been doing their job for the last 20 years.....Presidents and Administrations come and go. But...

The "in the trenches" CIA and other people tend to stay in their organizations. Heads of the CIA tend to stay only a few years at best.

Who exactly is responsible to check and see exactly what group of people are responsible for what information? And at every level...

And the same thing with the FBI....

What Intel groups gave the Democrat leaders the information that led them to say in the 1990's that Saddam had to go, and all the other things we've heard them say...?

Was there a complete, top to bottom turn around of people in the CIA and FBI, and all the other Intel organizations in the country when GWB took over in 2001?

Does anyone really believe that from Jan 2001 until 9/11/2001 the intelligence communities were peopled by different people in those 8 months?

The individuals shouting "I was misled" had better think about what they are really saying.

Pretty soon, we the people, will ALL KNOW we were misled, and it was not the President of the US who misled us....

WHERE were the Congressional overseers of the Intelligence organizations for this country, and WHAT were they doing for the last 20 years?
