It was the worst intelligence failure since Pearl Harbor, but all we get is a measly “no sir, I wasn’t comfortable” from the would-be CIA chief about the White House’s trumping up of intelligence to sell the Iraq war.

Yeah, that ought to about heal all our nation’s wounds….

Crooks and Liars:

On CNN this morning:

[Sen.] Levin: While the intelligence community was consistently dubious about links between Iraq and al-Qaeda, Mr Feith produced an alternative analysis asserting that there was a strong connection. Were you comfortable with Mr. Feith’s office approach to intelligence analysis?

Hayden: No sir, I wasn’t. I wasn’t aware of a lot of the activity going on when it was contemporaneous with the running up to the war, but… no sir, I wasn’t comfortable.
