    I seriously doubt we will ever hear such a truthful admission from Bush or anyone in his administration.

    I'm still looking for the truthful admission in his statement. The intell wasn't wrong. It was ignored in favor of a forged "yellow cake" document and an IAEA report that didn't even exist. The IAEA report that did exist was ignored and the inspectors demonized.

    I couldn't locate the nutshell it came in but here's a link to the report.

    For those who can't or would rather not remember how the Bush and Blair administrations built their case for regime change in Iraq here's a refresher course.
