Bush OK's Independent Probe of Prewar Intelligence
Well, ole GW has decided to say "ok" to the independent probe. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the tremendous pressure coming from all sides for him to do so. It's about time.
Also, according to the Washington Post, the Justice Department has given semi autonomy to an inquiry into who in the administration leaked the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame after her husband, former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, criticized the administration's assertion that Iraq had sought nuclear material in Africa. This seems like a complete revenge move on the side of the administration.
Anyway, with two outside probes going, and mounting evidence of deceit, November is looking much less like the sure thing for Bush that I thought it would be.
