Don Rumsfeld, fuckwad
No one more than Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz should be blamed for the Iraq War. They were directing D Feith and W Luti, who were also cognizant of their role. The Defense Intelligence Agency, controlled by the Secretary of Defense, and not the Director of Central Intelligence (Head of the CIA), is 80-85% of the total US intelligence budget. DCI Tenet probably made some complaints, but apparently not enough. Secretary of State C Powell wanted to fight again in al-Iraq, according to someone I heard before the Bush administration took office. It's in the last couple minutes of the 40th anniversary of Eisenhower's Military-Industrial Complex speech, which, since our elections are regularly timed, was a week before Bush took office. It was hosted by the Nation magazine.
