    That initial post is from a blog, but it is quoting from the Today Show, the most popular morning program in America, from a Tom Brokaw interview, which I would assume is primetime news coverage, and NPR, the supposedly "left wing" alternative to Fox News. How much more coverage were you looking for?

    I have read the full text of the Brokaw interview. No smoking guns in there. Kay has been consistent since his initial testimony.

    Actually if you read, which might be difficult for you little thing, it's not Brokaw the sources are given.

    NPR = NATIONAL Public Radio. Why is a GOVERNMENT funded broadcaster taking a position?

    Just read this from Michelle Malkin . Excellent:

    "...Intelligence failures are not the same thing as lies. And intelligence failures about Iraqi WMD did not begin with the Bush administration. It is worth recalling that the CIA was way off the mark in its estimates of Saddam's chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons programs before the first Iraq war, too. It turned out then that Saddam was a much more dangerous WMD menace than the experts had realized. The experts then underestimated the threat. This time around, they may have overestimated the threat. But if intelligence mistakes are inevitable, is it better to worry too much about potential threats or to worry too little? Worrying too much -- if that's what happened -- resulted in the toppling of one of the planet's most murderous tyrants. Worrying too little resulted in 9/11".

    Isn't this all just commonsense? And why can't the left and the media get it, like the rest of us?
