"Some of the most irresponsible comments - about manipulating intelligence - have come from politicians who saw the same intelligence I saw and then voted to authorize the use of force against Saddam Hussein, These charges are pure politics."

-Bush on Wednesday


"WASHINGTON - President Bush and top administration officials have access to a much broader range of intelligence reports than members of Congress do, a nonpartisan congressional research agency said in a report Thursday, raising questions about recent assertions by the president.
...
The Congressional Research Service, by contrast, said: "The president, and a small number of presidentially designated Cabinet-level officials, including the vice president ... have access to a far greater overall volume of intelligence and to more sensitive intelligence information, including information regarding intelligence sources and methods."
...
The CRS report identified nine key U.S. intelligence "products" that aren't generally shared with Congress. These include the President's Daily Brief, a compilation of analyses that's given only to the president and a handful of top aides, and a daily digest on terrorism-related matters. "

- The Truth on Thursday

Speaking of liars, why does this four term professional liar still have a job?

GOP lawmaker: Saddam linked to 9/11
N.C. representative says 'evidence is clear'

Remember the 'special' intelligence reports only Robin Hayes (not Bush, Powell or Rumsfeld) gets? Except Bush says everyone gets the same reports. Although they obviously don't. I guess when you lie as much as the GOP, you're bound to hit each other with a little friendly fire now and again.
