Except instead of asking us questions behind closed doors, Cheney was asserting to the public as fact something that we found to be anything but. I found myself yelling at the TV like I was contesting a ref’s blown call in a football game.
What Nada Bakos apparently doesn't understand is that his group wasn't the only intelligence group with an opinion on these things.

He may also be unaware that his group turned out to be wrong on this assessment and Cheney's statement was vindicated by a postwar investigation of captured Iraqi documents.
