Just plain stupid

From today’s NY Times comes an analysis of the “crisis” in intelligence regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The piece examines options the Bush Administration might explore in responding to the problem.

Buried in the piece is this choice quote from an unnamed senior Republican:

“They wove this giant story, based on intelligence assessments that in hindsight — and this is hindsight, remember — were wrong. It’s exposed a huge problem in our intelligence gathering. But who wants to take that on in an election year? Or while you are fighting terrorists?”

Let me get this straight: Who wants to take on problems with intelligence when you’re fighting terrorists?
