Hadley, Neo-Con, Dissembler

     Stephen Hadley, and I can't imagine why this guy has enough credibility to appear in print, is all over the press with his propaganda efforts to save the Bush administration's reputation re:Iraq

     For instance, in today's Washington Post

While admitting "we were wrong" about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, President Bush's national security adviser on Sunday rejected assertions that the president manipulated intelligence and misled the American people.

     Gosh.  Did anyone actually think the _President_ had been behind the manipulation of intelligence?


     Right Web's Profile of Hadley inclues the following material:

Hadley served as the fall guy when allegations arose regarding Rice’s alleged mishandling of information about Iraq’s purported effort to buy uranium from Niger. According to the Washington Post, Hadley was told by CIA Director George Tenet that the Niger allegations, which were used by Bush in various speeches (including the January 2003 State of the Union Address) and served as a key justification for invading Iraq, were probably bogus and should not be used by the president. Hadley, who claimed that Rice had been unaware of the controversy, told the newspaper, "I should have recalled ... that there was controversy associated with the uranium issue."
