Murray Waas has exposed a new hole in the pre-war intelligence in his latest article.
The first report, delivered to Bush in early October 2002, was a one-page summary of a National Intelligence Estimate that discussed whether Saddam’s procurement of high-strength aluminum tubes was for the purpose of developing a nuclear weapon.
Among other things, the report stated that the Energy Department and the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research believed that the tubes were “intended for conventional weapons,” a view disagreeing with that of other intelligence agencies, including the CIA, which believed that the tubes were intended for a nuclear bomb.

First we find out that the “Mushroom cloud” story told on MTP by Cheney was actually a manufactured story by the administration. Now we find out that Bush and Cheney knew the aluminum tubes were not for nuclear weapons. The pile of lies by the administration is piling up quick and something needs to be done now.
