11. It was a crime by Bush/Cheney, a mistake by those in Congress. I don't believe

most of them knew at the time about the fake intelligence case, and thought it would turn out to be quick and popular like the first gulf war. In other words, they were out of their depth and league on foreign policy, and didn't realize what they were getting into (most in Congress are still this way--maybe even worse). The Bush team had a lot of old hands from the CIA and Pentagon, so even though Bush was clearly just a figurehead, no one thought that Poppy Bush's old buddies would drive the bus into the ditch that badly.
