Anyone else notice the Bush White House has a pattern of treating the CIA like garbage? The CIA offers intel, then the White House picks a few tidbits they like and discard the rest.

On one hand, you have the CIA claiming their warnings of 9/11 and intel on Iraq were ignored. On the other hand are guys in the White House tossing out the identity of a CIA agent and saying the CIA didn't give them useful intel (or at least useful for their agenda).

Now, we learn some Republicans in Congress thought the CIA was taking too long to process documents from Iraq and thought they could speed things up by leveraging the power of the Internet. CIA thought it was a bad idea. President Bush gave the green light anyway. The documents got published on the Internet. Turns out there was some nuclear technology in the mix. Oops!

In the Republicans' defense, the plan was to prove that Saddam Hussein was pursuing nuclear technology. However, I don't think publishing that technology on the Internet was the best way to prove it. Maybe next time y'all can let the CIA, ironically headquartered in the George Bush Center for Intelligence, do their job.
