10-5 bipartisan vote-——that means 2 bozo RINOS voted with this ridiculous travesty.

Do you know who they are?

Iraq and al Qaeda had a partnership, or that Iraq had provided al Qaeda with weapons training, were not substantiated by the intelligence,"

Oh, OK, so the Iraqis were training flight attendants at Salman Pak.

And yet the Senate Intelligence Committee had access to the full range of it and....voted for everything. Including authorizing the President to go to war.

As they gain power, their attempts at historical revisionism will continue. The fantasy that the Bush administration was able to pull the rug over everyone’s eyes is just that, pure fantasy. They made a case, a worst case scenerio, perhaps, but a good case for going into Iraq. No one really challenged it, the Democrats all jumped on board. This is simply a historical CYA by the Democrats over what is currently viewed as a failure (Iraq). There is that old saying, “Success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan”.

The Bush administration misused intelligence to build a case for the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, the Senate Intelligence Committee said in a report issued Thursday.

Uh huh. So how many who are on the Senate Intelligence Committee now were on then? The Committee had access to the same intelligence the President saw. Why did the Dems on the Committee not say something at the time?

Oh, that's right - because Bush DID NOT misuse the intelligence.

Now that we are so definitely winning there the lib media has to do soemthing to change the focus. I can’t see a single new point being made here. It is simply a rehash of the same thing they have been saying since they showed again their cowardice by disavowing their vote to go to war when the winds changed.

Does anybody have a copy of the infamous Rockefeller letter outlining the Democrats’ plans to defeat Bush through Iraq?

This is a fine election-year ploy but isn't really going to pass historical muster in the face of the very public statements on that topic by members of both parties well before Bush was even elected. One grows tired of this ceaseless political posturing but this is the season, after all.

Bush's ability to control public information flow through the mechanism of declassification has very little to do with Congress, whose members enjoy an access to intelligence information quite a bit deeper than the public and certain members of which (the intelligence oversight committee, for one) see essentially everything the President does. In short, this is a CYA that plays well in the media but not very well to anyone who actually remembers what happened or knows how this sort of thing actually works.

Senate Intelligence Committee = Democrat Unintelligent Pigsty.

They’re all just a bunch of meatheaded lying pigs, with forgone “conclusions” that they picked through the facts to “fit”.

Not one of them deserves better than to have their lying faces spat in.

My question for the libs: doesn’t this start to get old even with you? Administration “ginned up”, “left the impression”, “suggested”, etc, etc, without a single example of an actual falsehood or deception. Doesn’t it get old?

"Statements and implications by the president and secretary of state suggesting that Iraq and al Qaeda had a partnership, or that Iraq had provided al Qaeda with weapons training, were not substantiated by the intelligence," according to the committee's exhaustive report on prewar intelligence.

That is odd, because I was alive before the war, and I don't remember anybody telling me that Saddam had anything to do with Al Qaeda. I do remember some Democrats telling me that he had WMD.

In fact, I remember Charlie Rangel, on C-SPAN telling the audience that we should not invade Iraq because if we did, Saddam would use chemical weapons on us, and would be justified in doing so since we would be invading HIS country.
