What Fresh Hell Is This?

More evidence Bush lied...

In today's Washington Post:
The former CIA official who coordinated U.S. intelligence on the Middle East until last year has accused the Bush administration of "cherry-picking" intelligence on Iraq to justify a decision it had already reached to go to war, and of ignoring warnings that the country could easily fall into violence and chaos after an invasion to overthrow Saddam Hussein.
And that's just the first paragraph. Here's the fourth:
"It has become clear that official intelligence was not relied on in making even the most significant national security decisions, that intelligence was misused publicly to justify decisions already made, that damaging ill will developed between [Bush] policymakers and intelligence officers, and that the intelligence community's own work was politicized," [Paul R. ] Pillar wrote.
Corruption and incompetence - hallmarks of the Bush Regime.

Is this really any suprise? Even with only a knowledge of world news & governments, and no intelligence info chanelled through me - I could have told Bush that this was a bad mistake to invade Iraq. Is he so political minded that he lets his desire to be a bigger hit than his "Daddy", that he lead into this mistaken war????
