"Here's ANOTHER fine mess you've gotten me into!!!"
Step One: Assign Blame.

Now that it's becoming more and more apparent that President Bush & Co. manipulated and exaggerated intelligence reports to justify conquering Iraq, the neo-cons have turned to their favorite whipping boy, William Jefferson Clinton, to get them out of this fix. In this article from the L.A. Times, Pentagon officials are now saying that they were simply following the intelligence laid out by Slick Willy's administration.

OK, beyond the fact that this is inching dangerously close to the Nuremberg defense, riddle me this, Batman: Why would anyone start a war over intelligence briefings that are at least two years old from a different President? Is that just bureaucratic laziness?
