CIA HAD FIX

CIA HAD FIX: WaPo reports that, around 4pm EST, CIA Director George Tenet briefed the president that the agency .had a fix on Saddam and his senior leaders and expected them to be at that location for hours to come. It doesn’t look like we got him, but starting the war in daylight hours in hopes of ending it before it really started was certainly a gamble worth taking.
