Ex - CIA Agent Says WMD Intelligence Ignored

Howie still doesn't believe it. He still thinks that we haven't yet found WMDs, or that they were spirited away in the middle of the night -- to Syria.

Poor Howie. And his type.

The CIA had evidence Iraq possessed no weapons of mass destruction six months before the 2003 U.S.-led invasion but was ignored by a White House intent on ousting Saddam Hussein, a former senior CIA official said according to CBS.

...The source "told us that there were no active weapons of mass destruction programs,'' (former CIA operative Tyler) Drumheller said in a CBS interview to be aired on Sunday on the network's news magazine, "60 Minutes.''

"The (White House) group that was dealing with preparation for the Iraq war came back and said they were no longer interested,'' he was quoted as saying in interview excerpts released by CBS on Friday.

"We said: 'Well, what about the intel?' And they said: 'Well, this isn't about intel anymore. This is about regime change','' added Drumheller, whose CIA operation was assigned the task of debriefing the Iraqi official.

Unbelievable what the Right has allowed this country to become. Howie,
