More on Feith

The New York Sun asks some important questions about the overheated reportage on Doug Feith's efforts to check what has been both remarkably faulty and remarkably politicized work on the part of America's intelligence agencies.

As Hugh Hewitt points out, there's much to be gained by having more than one team's set of eyes analyzing intelligence information.

Indeed, what some on the left seem willing to ignore is that reading intelligence is more like unpacking a relatively complex poem than it is like reading a grocery list, where no ambiguities of meaning or interpretation exist.

Amazing that, after searching high and low for anyone who "dissented" from the received wisdom on Iraq and WMD, the Democrats are determined to smear a man who actually did try to elicit some fresh and independent analysis of Saddam/Al Qaeda links.
