Turns out that, with the new National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), Iran is not working as hard on WMDs as the administration has led us to believe. Turns out Bush was briefed on this four months ago. He does not remember. Now the President is having to explain why he held up the NIE, why he talked about World War 3 and why he has been so gung ho on starting a war with Iran with troops he does not have.
Here is the press conference from this morning.
I wonder if Rove will try to blame the march to war with Iran on the Democrats in Congress. You have to admit Karl has a lot of hutzspa. I can hear it now: "The President, and Vice President, did not want to go to war in Iran. They were just responding to pressure from Tom Dachel, I mean Nancy Pelosi, and Ralph Reed, I mean Harry Reid. Yeah, that was it, it was Harry Reid."
