    This should be a big boost to John McCain's effort to secure a third term for George Bush.

    The Senate Intelligence Committee finally issued its report on prewar intelligence during build up to the Iraq War -- and in the very nice language of the U.S. Senate -- the report confirms that Bush lied to the American people about the Iraq War:

    The Committee’s report cites several conclusions in which the Administration’s public statements were NOT supported by the intelligence. They include:

    Whatever. These senators saw the same intelligence Bush did before the war started and still voted to go to war. This is political whitewashing in an election year to make themselves presentable to the public for election times.

    I'm sure a well timed report with partisanship shining on each and every page will probably help him.

    They did not say he lied, the only place they used the term mislead or withheld is on IRAN.

    No it took a Democratic Controlled Senate to rewrite history and facts to confirm this. And it took them 18 months to do it at that. Magically coming out just before an election cycle.

    The 2002 NIE is clear. This report is a bald faced lie on its own.

    One is of course entitled to their opinion. Olympia Snow and Chuck Hagel disagree with you though.

    Have we?

    I wonder... is it the chicken or the egg?

    Is it that no RGS-approved Republican would ever criticize the president such, or is it that no Republican that criticized the president as such would meet the criteria of RGS-approval?
