It goes to the heart of the justification for War. If true, it totally discredits the case for war in Iraq. It's a HUGE black eye for the Bush administration.
A quick attempt to trivialize the issue isn't at all suprising from Donger or any Con.
I'm guessing that his justification is just to add context to the issue. Which is fair. However, a more meaningful context are the consequences of this story. If Isreal pushed forged documents into the Cheney/Bush intel pipeline... and the CIA discredited the documents... and Bush decided to ignore the CIA and rely on the spy's forged (and discredited) intel in making his most dramatic and public case for war in Iraq...
Then Bush is at the center of the entire storm of lying to make a false case for war in Iraq. And knowingly lying to the American people in order to secure political support for his war.
