Democrats and Pre-war Intelligence

Bloggers and talk radio have been pointing out for a very long time that democrat after democrat saw the same prewar intelligence as did the President and came to the same conclusion as did the President: that Saddam Hussein had an arsenal of weapons of mass destruction. However, not until recently, when the President began pointing this out, have democrats had to account for their statements regarding Iraq and WMD's.

Their defense? A Boston Herald editorial points to a report that claims “no more than six senators and a handful of House members,” had read beyond the five-page summary of the 92-page intelligence document provided by the CIA to members of Congress. Senator Jay Rockefeller, D-WV, recently repeated that claim.

What kind of defense is that? If we believe what Rockefeller says, these people voted to authorize the use of force in Iraq without reading the information that they felt they needed to make that decision. If we don't believe what he says, then it's back to what some of us have been saying all along, that they saw the same intel as the President, and believed that Iraq was a threat and needed to be disarmed.

Interestingly enough, Hillary Clinton, when recently asked whether she had read the intel report, declined to say whether she had or not.

So were the six senators and the handful of House members struck mute after reading the report? I will assume that any part of the CIA report that cautioned against war was less than compelling.

And Hillary can ofcourse do or say whatever she wants because she has the support of the Democrat Ministers of Propaganda... the media wing of the Democrat Party.

This is ridiculous. I don't know of a single teacher who would accept the excuse from a student that, since he didn't read the required assignment, he didn't know any of the information on the test and therefore should not be held accountable for wrong answers.

Why is it then that voters, particularly Democrats, are willing to accept such a lame and ignorant excuse from the people who are claiming that they have been misled. Maybe if they had actually read their "assigned" reading, they could have made an informed decision based on the intelligence. Apparently the democrats are more willing to appear ignorant than wrong.
