One of These Things is Not Like the Other


One of these things just doesn't belong.

Over here we have the latest CIA assessment of potential links between Saddam and al Qaeda. Executive summary: none. Oh, and that deal about Abu Musab al-Zarqawi getting treatment in a Baghdad hospital for an amputated leg? Scratch that, two legs.

Over here we have Don Rumsfeld desparately trying to the square the CIA findings with his own belief system, to wit Iraq and al Qaeda talked about all kinds of things including safe havens and WMD. Only pointy-headed CIA-types refuse to see what that means.

Bottomline, if this pissing match between the CIA and the Bush administration goes on much longer we'll all get hosed.
