1. wow, look at this quote:
"Knight-Ridder writes that the speed of the leak suggests that senior US policy makers want to make sure the assessment reaches President Bush. These officials say that the bleaker assessments of Iraq seldom reach the president, as they are deflected by Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and other hard-liners, who instead give much more optimistic reports."

Scary, huh? This is the problem with having an incompetent as president.
