INTEL HOAX, REDUX
Kevin is “actually starting to feel sorry for the CIA these days.” He ponders whether “Congress [is] really going to let the Bush administration get away with making the CIA the scapegoat for” the WMD fiasco. Actually, the quotation Kevin cites charges that the Pentagon–presumably under pressure from Rumsfeld and Co.–deliberately distorted the CIA analysis. I’m skeptical of this, but it’s one hell of a charge if it can be proven. Indeed, it would be impeachable. I’ll need a lot more evidence than a vague Newsday story.
