Just heard David Corn of The Nation (I think), ask why the second phase isn't out before the election.
And Rockefeller is saying we can work through August, to get the second phase of report out.
DON'T WE REALLY KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON.

I love what Sen Rock said, "With Al Qaeda we failed to connect the dots, with Iraq, there were NO DOTS and we connected them."

The old damed if you don't and damned if you do scenario! This report along with the upcoming 911 report are NOT worth the paper they are written on. All of it is based on hindsight and second guessing thereby USELESS and politically a gotcha game.

I fervently pray we find WMD and render this REPORT null and void and expose 'committees and commissions' for what they truly are........

A PRETENTIOUS WASTE of TIME and TAX PAYERS MONEY!!

Every party has a segment reserved for stupids. Even ours. I think this issue is a dead horse, except for those who want to keep beating it. Few are listening.

Alot of the intelligence and the reasons for going to War were trumpeted by the entire Democratic party and the Clinton administration back in 1998. But, you're right, other countries had intelligence that only proved Bush was right in going into Iraq.

Roberts talking about the 18,000 bodies found in Iraq. Doesn't know how many more resolutions the UN would have had to pass. Thinks the world is a safer place without Saddam. The war and battle plan may have been argued differently, but would have voted for the war.

Iraq from here on out will be used as a means of regaining power, as far as the Democrats are concerned. They've got nothing else to run on. This puts Bush as a distinct advantage, because the Democrats are sandbagging themselves with lies.

We also have to remember Tenet's statement to the 9-11 Committee that it would take 5 MORE years for the CIA to even be up to speed. [Tenet was director for, what, 7 years? No wonder he resigned and ran while he could.]

Have you heard any Republican challenge the Demonrats on their statements regarding Iraq and WMD and calls for regime change and war going back to the Clintoon administration?? What is it with this silence from these incompetent 'Republicans'? What is Roberts doing in response to this Rockefeller Bush bash? I am so angry at Republicans and the Bushies for allowing them to get away with this Bush lied and exaggerated bull. It's time they make the Demonrats explain how they could be 'lying' when they are also on record in saying how Iraq was this threat and voting for a resolution of war. It needs to be brought up, but there is silence from Bush.

I don't know why Roberts is even going along with the Democrats. You think he would at least disagree with Rockefeller at least 95% of the time. They're polar opposites of one another on the political spectrum.

Republicans still act like they are the minority party. They don't know how to act like a majority party.

Dems, the current minority party, act like they are the majority party and they get away with allot of crap. If the situation were reversed and a minority Pub party tried some of that stuff, the Dems would shut them down immediately.

Pubs need to start acting like the Majority party or they will return to minority status for a long time.

Not only with the CIA, but why did the rest of the world, the UN, remain concerned regarding Iraq and WMD and carry on with the belief they had and continued to work on them? And shouldn't we be concerned that Iraq may have very well moved the weapons?

Kerry and Edwards came to St. Pete, Fla. two nights ago and the local channel aired it. Kerry said if he is President America will go to war because it HAS TO .. not because it WANTS TO. THIS IN ADVANCE OF THE (INTELLIGENCE) REPORT TODAY.

Thank the Republicans for putting out such a great report. As for the African uranium charge-seems as if the British had an inquiry and are going to release a report that in fact that did happen, so where are these people in apologizing for that? So many contradictions as this belief of Iraq and WMD is so longstanding by everyone and yet they are acting as if it was just made up by the CIA and administration. THESE SENATORS NEED TO ANSWER FOR THEIR OWN LIES THEN.

It's easy to "blame" the nameless spooks of the CIA. (previous post forgot: /sarcasm)

Saddam DID possess WMD, and Saddam used WMD.

I just heard them dismissing the discovered WMD as being irrelevant since they were left over from other wars. I guess that means old Sarin, VX, etc cannot harm you.

So that advanced binary sarin shell is nothing? Like didn't the UN resolution prescribe that Sadam account for all his WMDs and Sadam even said he did. Yet the quantifiable evidence after the war now (eg. the binary sarin shell and must shells) shows Sadam did not account for all his WMDs, was in violation of the UN resolutions and the evidence is an indicator that there are more WMDs out there.

The republicans just can't be dismissing this stuff ... thats insane. How do people get a way with moving the goal posts like this?

yep. if they have some great piece of info. we haven't heard yet, Now, is the time to drop it on us.

I still want to know what happened to the WMD that the Clinton Admin. said there was. Does the report answer that.
It should have started there.

Someone on Fox just said we have a Perfect Storm in the making with all these reports coming out .. 9-11 report, etc.

They can't BS me......I , in desert storm, and others there today have seen em , touched em ,tested and destroyed em. The Senate Intelligence Commitee is selling camel chit to the sheeple. They do as much damage to our nation as the terrorists when they lie in such a manner knowing full and well that there are people there in country and here that know better.

IMO the CIA would rather claim they goofed and let the polidiots and presstitutes scurry around pissed and proud than to give up their official and NOC sources "during this war on terrorism".

Just my opinion based on what I've seen first hand in the past and am hearing first hand from trusted co-workers still in the business........:o)

Stay safe !

Yes, and where is the administration in pointing this out? Roberts, Rockefeller and the rest of them need to be included in the blame game of this report because EVERYONE has their hands dirty on Iraq and WMD. I'm just shocked by the complete silence from the President in claims that he lied about all of this-he needs to point out that everyone LIED then. He needs to call them on it because at the very least every nation in this world was duped because it was universal in belief that Iraq had WMD and what about Putin's statement that he warned President Bush of Iraq planning terrorist strikes against the USA after 9/11? Silence from the media and the idiots who put together this report. I am so angry because there is no counter to these asinine charges.

Most of the Senate and House Republicans seem afraid for their re-election and unwilling to anger the Democratic attack machine. They will not do anything to attract the attention of the press and Democratic machine because they would endanger their electoral security. The object lessons of the targeted "house managers" of the Clinton era has them totally intimidated.

It's old news. Folks are tired of hearing the President being bashed on the same thing over and over and over again. This will have little impact.

There are two areas folks will vote on: the economy and the War on Terror which include Iraq. Both are strong for Bush. Bush will win.
