Facts vs. Conclusions

Jack Kelly points out that the "conclusions" adopted in a report from the Senate Intelligence Committee aren't supported by the facts contained in the report itself -- and they're being used for political purposes by the Democrats.

The Robb-Silverman Commission did not look into the use of intelligence by policy-makers. So one would not use that for Bush/Cheney's role.

Jack Kelley for some reason doesn't state that there are sections of the report that are blacked out and remain classified.

The conclusions are very reasonable in that Cheney relied on "Curve Ball" for all the intelligence on a non-existent nuclear program and also on Chalibi for WMDs while ignoring George Tenant.

I forgot to write the report also stated that both Chalibi and Curve Ball had been determined not to be reliable sources although Cheney decided to rely on them exclusively to make the case for war.

Really sad and too obvious what Cheney had done. A true disgrace.
