7. They should have titled it "TENET WAS DEAD WRONG"
I think at one point they asked the question as to whether the Bush Administration would have gone to war anyway, even without the CIA intelligence. I heard something like "we will never know". That's about all they said about Bush's intent. To me, this was an attempt to pin the blame on George Tenet and give Bush an excuse. I also note the emphasis CNN made of the fact that Tenet was a Clinton appointee, right at the start of the program.
