Great Grape Scapegoat

Ex-C.I.A. Chief, in Book, Assails Cheney on Iraq:

Mr. Tenet takes blame for the flawed 2002 National Intelligence Estimate about Iraq’s weapons programs, calling the episode “one of the lowest moments of my seven-year tenure.” He expresses regret that the document was not more nuanced, but says there was no doubt in his mind at the time that Saddam Hussein possessed unconventional weapons. “In retrospect, we got it wrong partly because the truth was so implausible,” he writes.

What's implausible is that Tenet, Cheney and the rest of these clowns didn't get exactly what they wanted. Clowns.
