Bush Pissed at “Political” NIE Leak

The president said the media accounts of the leak of the National Intelligence Estimate were meant to “create confusion in the minds of the American people” and suggested that the report had been leaked for political purposes.

It is impossible not to wonder if Bush has a sense of his own terrific irony, or if all that tired stuff about him being an idiot is actually, you know, true. By now the White House has considerable expertise in selectively releasing portions of classified government documents. What is really interesting about this story is Intelligence Chief John “Death Squad” Negroponte’s mastery of cognitive dissonance:

On Monday evening, Negroponte rejected the argument that the Iraq war had increased the terrorist threat against the United States.

Negroponte conceded that Iraq had become a training ground for a new generation of jihadists. 

The terrorists which are being “bred” and trained in the killing fields of Iraq are, he says, not “really” interested in directing their murderous psychopathology at the U.S. proper. Right.
