Ex CIA Director George Tenet: Bush and Cheney targeted Iraq from beginning

There have been claims all along that the Bush administration targeted Iraq for war long before September 11, 2001. Bush and Cheney, of course, have denied such claims.

However, a guy they liked (they gave him the medal of freedom on his way out) has now said it. George Tenet, former CIA director, has said in his latest book, At the Center of the Storm, that Bush and especially Cheney sought to war with Iraq from the earliest days of their co-presidency.

Paul O'Neill said it, and, while respectfully considered by many non-Blue-Staters, it wasn't taken too seriously.

However, this comes from the bowels of the intelligence community, from a highly-respected, though much-maligned, member of the CIA and Bush's inner circle.

Now all we have to do is wait for Rummy to jump in and say, "We made it all up. Every last bit of it."

Hell has frozen over if that happens.
