    Cherry-pickers

    ...should Mr. Bush choose to "cherry-pick" intelligence to justify a future conflict, he has a terrific model to follow in the report issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee on Sept. 8.

    I read the whole 205 pages, and was stunned by the degree to which the "findings" in the body of the report did not support the "conclusions" at the end of it.

    I wasn't alone. The committee chairman, Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, said in his "additional views" that "if the public focuses only on the conclusions adopted by several members of this committee, they will not get the full story. The adopted conclusions are not supported by fact."
