All you need to know...

... about the controversial new National Intelligence Estimate is here.

The same guy who now says Iran isn't trying to get nukes said back in July that Iran IS trying to get nukes.

What's changed between then and now? This isn't just a case of a two year old NIE being outdated at present; this is information from just a few months ago, doubtless information that is still used to assess Iran. How is it that just five months ago we were told that Iran was endangering the world with its pursuit of nuclear weapons, but today we are told they haven't been pursuing nuclear weapons for FOUR YEARS?!?!?!

The primary guy, apparently, is a former Statie who was hired back to work in the CIA in a storm of protest from anti-anti-Bush voices. He's a fiery anti-Bush activist.

I'm shocked, shocked that politics should influence intelligence estimates in this country. Shocked, I tell you.
