The walls are starting to crumble folks. One by one, the CIA agents are tired of getting the blame for faulty intelligence and are speaking out.

In this Walter Pincus/WaPo article this morning we have Paul R. Pillar, a 28 year veteran of the CIA telling us that “Official intelligence on Iraqi weapons programs was flawed, but even with its flaws, it was not what led to the war,” Pillar wrote in the upcoming issue of the journal Foreign Affairs. Instead, he asserted, the administration “went to war without requesting — and evidently without being influenced by — any strategic-level intelligence assessments on any aspect of Iraq.”

Holy Shit Sherlock! The Whistleblowers are coming out of the woodwork. No one would listen to Richard Clarke when he testified back during the 9/11 commission hearings. Will they listen now?

Of course the White House is spinning faster than a top on this and as usual, accuses the accusers of lying.

“Yesterday, the Senate Republican Policy Committee issued a statement to counter what it described as “the continuing Iraq pre-war intelligence myths,” including charges that Bush ” ‘misused’ intelligence to justify the war.” Writing that it was perfectly reasonable for the president to rely on the intelligence he was given, the paper concluded, “it is actually the critics who are misleading the American people.”

Please, go read the article. It is very damning. The Cabal of Fascists in the White House, as I have come to so lovingly refer to them, cannot possibly keep up with all the lies they have told. My hope is that even though it is taking longer than I would hope, they are falling, one day at a time.
