Sure looked like it to me, but I'll take your word
for it that isn't what you meant.

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.
