28. Thanks I saw it last week and one item they mentioned was
the discrepancy with the aluminum tube story. If they figured it out then our elected officials should have figured it out.

At least Durbin voted no and unfortunately he is currently getting most of the bad press because of his recent speech. We should question everyone, regardless of party IMO.

Again leaving the intelligence aside, as Senator Byrd said 'Why are we giving this one man so much power on going to war.'

And we were in the majority in the Senate at the time, why rush this vote?

"BILL MOYERS: What got even less ink than the protestors, was the release of something called the national intelligence estimate. Before voting to give the President war powers, Congress asked the administration to detail all the top secret evidence it was using to justify an invasion.

JONATHAN LANDAY: I got my copy, and I opened it up…

JONATHAN LANDAY: This is the white paper that…

JONATHAN LANDAY: And I came to the part that talked about the aluminum tubes. Now, it said that the majority of analysts believed that those tubes were for the nuclear weapons program. It turns out, though, that that majority of intelligence analysts were-- had no background in nuclear weapons."
