I recognize that much of the Democrats’ complaining about the use of prewar intelligence on Iraq — including the move Tuesday to force a closed-door session in the Senate — is a lot of political gotcha. I also understand that most members of Congress and a number of other countries thought Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. But I don’t buy the current GOP line that everyone made a mistake so no one is really to blame. The Bush administration led the charge in selling Congress and the American public on the need to launch a pre-emptive war, so it deserves the most scrutiny and accountability for how it used intelligence information.
