Merry Christmas, aWol 

Great to see that WaPo still has actual reporter Walter Pincus in action, but why bury this story on the day before Christmas, I wonder?

The President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board has concluded that the White House made a questionable claim in January's State of the Union address about Saddam Hussein's efforts to obtain nuclear materials because of its desperation to show that Hussein had an active program to develop nuclear weapons, according to a well-placed source familiar with the board's findings.

Right. "Desperation." Got that.

The source said that at the time of the State of the Union speech, there was no organized system at the White House to vet intelligence, and the informal system that was followed did not work in the case of that speech.

Thank heavens the adults were in charge! Seriously, this is just what DiIulio said on the domestic side—there was no policy arm at all; everything was political.

The findings of the advisory board do not appear to add many new details about the uranium episode, but they make it clear that the White House should share blame with the CIA for allowing the questionable material into the speech.

Right. When hell freezes over.... Era of personal responsibility? Accountability? That's for the little people!
