Blame it on the CIA

You know that we've gone through the looking glass, around the bend, and way outside the envelope when liberal types like me start defending the CIA. But Colin Powell has finally admitted he told an untruth (aka "lie") to the UN and the world about the "Winnebagoes of Death" mobile balloon fillers that posed an imminent threat to our safety. But he says it is because the CIA was "misled," which caused him to be misled.

While I'm sure the CIA made mistakes in evaluating intelligence, the Bushies, including Powell, desperately WANTED to be misled by Chalabi or anyone else who would tell them what they wanted to hear.
