"In the wake of the Iraq war, it has become clear that official intelligence analysis was not relied on in making even the most significant national security decisions, that intelligence was misused publicly to justify decisions already made (to go to war with Iraq)."

"The Bush Administration deviated from the professional standard...in aggressively using intelligence to win public support for its decision to go to war..."cherry-picking" - rather than using the inteligence communities own analytic judgements. In fact, key portions of the administrations case explicitly rejected those judgements."

"The administration selected pieces of raw intelligence to use in its public case for war..."

"The intelligence community never offered any analysis that supported the notion of an alliance between Saddam and al Qaeda."

How about going out and finding some way to serve your country rather than trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Can you hold your drivel for ONE DAY to honor those that won YOUR FREEDOM!
