Because wherever you go, there you are
Welcome NSA!

Bush was forced to release a summary of the National Intelligence Estimate, a report put together by all 16 US Intelligence agencies. It was written in February of '06, but had been kept under wraps. Based on what came out, it's easy to understand why.

The Conclusion: The War in Iraq has not made us safer; it has increased terrorism, rather than decreasing it.

And this is in the part that Bush declassified. One wonders what's in the redacted parts, or in the more recent NIE report on Iraq that Bush doesn't want to release until February.

Bush had the audacity to question the motives of those who had leaked parts of the report "just before the election." What about those who keep information hidden until just after the election?

Who better serves democracy?
