SUBJ YET ANOTHER INTELLIGENCE FAILURE REPORT
(NIAMEY BUREAU)--What, no mention of Valerie Plame, the CIA hottie who's name was spilled by Bob Novak and set off a media war that set the front lines of the halls of Congress...The Chilcot Report, by any other name, is still a long drawn out academic bore that relies on newspaper articles, messages from whomever and a host of other sources.
All of them don't add up to a horse's patoot when it comes to the outcome of the war itself. Why bother to fix blame through some concocted thousand page release that repeats what's already been documented. But the bigger question is, why now? Does it matter how the inevitable was going to happen, somebody had to take the fall for 9/11.
It's all too easy for the British to rationalize its way out of its commitment over a decade after the fact, but not much has changed, just the characters are different. As one disgruntled looter from day one when the statue of Hussein fell in Firdos Square put it--
"Instead of one dictator, now we have 1000."
