Another significant intelligence officer of the United States has confirmed that the White House "fit" the intelligence to its desire for war against Iraq. Bush/Cheney used the excuse that WMD were all over Iraq, based on "slam dunk" intelligence, and we had to protect ourselves from it. When no WMD was found, Bush/Cheney blamed faulty intelligence.
According to CBS News' 60 Minutes yesterday, Sunday April 23, 2006:
Tyler Drumheller, a 26-year veteran of the CIA, says he saw how the Bush administration, time and again, welcomed intelligence that fit the president's determination to go to war and turned a blind eye to intelligence that did not.
"It just sticks in my craw every time I hear them say it’s an intelligence failure. It’s an intelligence failure. This was a policy failure."
