Senate Hearing on Iraq Pre-War Intelligence

* rawstory:
"Appearing before the The Senate Democratic Policy Committee, former Assistant Secretary of State for Intelligence and Research Carl Ford called upon policy makers to accept part of the blame for intelligence failures, telling them to "not accept the crap we give you."

The proceedings, chaired by Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND), heard testimony regarding pre-war intelligence in Iraq. The Democrats held their own hearings out of frustration with a lack of scrutiny of Iraq intelligence by the Republican-led Senate."

* you can see the whole 3 hour hearings at c-span. look under 'recent programs' for "Senate Cmte. Hearing on Iraq Pre-War Intelligence (6/26/06)" - or c&l has some snippets
