... adviser admits, but we did not lie!
While admitting "we were wrong" about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, President Bush's national security adviser on Sunday rejected assertions that the president manipulated intelligence and misled the American people.

Bush relied on the collective judgment of the intelligence community when he determined that Iraq's Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, national security adviser Stephen Hadley said.

"Turns out, we were wrong," Hadley told "Late Edition" on CNN. "But I think the point that needs to be emphasized ... allegations now that the president somehow manipulated intelligence, somehow misled the American people, are flat wrong."
What this means, of course, is that multiple international and domestic problems will inhibit national defense for the foreseeable future.
First, Bush's foreign policy toward North, Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Israel, and the Middle East will be forced through the sieve of this debacle.

Second, Bush's reception in foreign capitals will be unpleasant for the remainder of his term in office.

Third, the MSM will use the meat cleaver of untruth to pulverize everything the Bush administration says prior to feeding it to our toothless citizenry.
This will make for little productivity out of the Bush administration for the next three and ahalf years ... including stopping spending and/or stopping democratic legislation.

Thank God Roberts is a done deal and Alito is fairly certain, though he can expect a rough time before Specture's committee and even a rougher time on the floor of the Senate.
