Sure looked like it to me, but I'll take your word for it that isn't what you meant. However both Tenet and subsequent directors,Goss and Hayden, > have dealt with a well entrenched CIA that has been in place for > many years through various administrations. Just because one > changes the director of the CIA doesn't mean you have changed > the CIA. But nobody suggested the CIA had changed. The point was that they were right all along. They told Tenet there was no evidence of WMD; Tenet decided to play kissy-face with Bush anyway. He told Bush what he wanted to hear. And he's been well rewarded for it with that nice Medal of Freedom he got after he retired. Lawson's point was that the report on what the CIA said before the invasion was *put out by the Senate Republicans*, even though it reflects horrendously negatively on the administration. Whether the CIA changes or not over administrations was completely irrelevant. That's why I misunderstood you, because what you claim to have been saying didn't make any sense.
