Blame the CIA!

Oliver Willis sees the upside for the Bush administration in the Uranium fallout:

Tenet Takes Blame For Sluggish Economy
(Washington) - One day after CIA director George Tenet accepted culpability for the uranium falsehood in President Bush's state of the union address, he also admitted that the CIA also approved the following text in the President's speech:

"The tax relief is for everyone who pays income taxes -- and it will help our economy immediately"

Tenet now admits that the evidence was both "flimsy and shaky" that tax cuts for the rich would do anything to help the economy, but the CIA allowed the text to be included.
