Sucked in by Hoover

Is President Bush moving toward a strike against Iran? ThinkProgress notes that he spent time Friday at the Hoover Institution, where intellectuals are pushing for pre-emptive military action.

This is important in light of last night's 60 Minutes episode featuring retired CIA officer Tyler Drumheller. He and other intelligence officers thought the Niger uranium story linking Iraq to WMD development was false, but the White House did not include that analysis when it made the case for war. As Talking Points Memo notes, the congressional committees investigating the intelligence failures interviewed Drumheller but never mentioned him in their reports.

Where Bush gets his information and analysis is important, as we now know.
