Let me ask you both this: all this information he is now trashing, didn't HIS committee have the same access as everbody he is now blaming?
Didn't Jay Rockefeller come out and give press conferences where he says that it was all very distrubing?
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.
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!!
This is just the Senate trying to move any possible blame from itself. We have heard from the current Weapons Inspector, over the past couple of months, that there has been Sarin and Mustard gas found. A stockpile of chemicals stored right next to a stockpile of shells. It does not matter when it was made...Saddam was not allowed to have it...and he claimed that he did not. The weapons inspector has also stated that Iraq's weapons developement was at the point where they could develope weapons in very short notice. THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT THE SENATE SEEMED TO HAVE FAILED TO MENTION IN THEIR DOG AND PONY SHOW PRESSER!
ANY FAILURE OF THE CIA CAN BE DIRECTLY LINKED TO THE SENATE AND THEIR REGULATION PUSHES!!!!
Congress has screwed over the CIA so much it is unreal.
Things like the Church act which did not allow the CIA to share info with other groups and vice versa. Then there is the whole Gorelick issue. He memo to push for "The Wall". The Senate is just trying to cover their own sorry butts.
