George Bush is a weapon of mass destruction. 

This has been fun today, when the clouds lifted a bit, and, quoting someone in comments at the Daily Kos, we get to hear the loud yawn of a public waking up from a deep slumber.

All fingers in the Bush administration seem to be pointing at the CIA, blaming the CIA for not objecting to the Niger line in the state of the union speech. The Bushies are hoping the public will buy this pathetic explanation for their lies, distortions and war.

Senator Pat Roberts, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, weighed in just a few moments ago when he released a statement calling the CIA intelligence leading up to the war "sloppy". He also accused the CIA of deliberately leaking reports in order to discredit the president.

I never in a million years thought I would be defending the CIA, but I'm not going to wax sentimental for my contempt of this agency, and urge everyone to email Senator Pat Roberts in protest of his and the Bush and company's attempts to pass this stinker off to the CIA, and specifically, George Tenet. Tell Pat I said "Hi".
