The Blame Game

When reading about Senate Intelligence Committee report on Pre-War Intelligence (which has prompted somewhat misleading headlines such as "Senate Report Said to Fault CIA for Iraq Intel Failures", it is important to remember this key detail:

Under a deal struck between Republicans and Democrats, a Senate intelligence committee report that is highly critical of prewar intelligence on Iraq will sidestep the question of how the Bush administration used that information to make the case for war, congressional officials said Wednesday.

Since the Senate's report only covers the intelligenc community's role in the information used to sell the Iraq War, it only makes sense that it is highly critical of the CIA and by no means lets the administration off the hook.
