This commission's report looks like a big hit to American intelligence.
The failure to find any WMD after the invasion made that clear. But the fact that the commission, whose members were picked by Bush, found that US
intelligence knows virtually nothing about the nuclear programs of North Korea and Iran
, two of the countries - Iraq was the other one - that
Bush labelled an "axis of evil" three years ago, is alarming.
Indeed the report says that US intelligence agencies know less about North Korea and Iran than they knew 10 years ago.
The international consequences of this finding are likely to be significant. The Bush Administration has consistently refused to become involved in
the EU's diplomatic efforts to persuade Iran to abandon its nuclear program.

This certainly isn't comforting to know. It sure isn't making major headlines although it seems to be rather significant. What does this say to our
President Bush "refused to answer questions about the report."
As the article states, instead of "Curveball", they should have named it "Screwball."
