i guess tenet didn't read the briefing book
This sort of thing is exactly why I continue to have questions about Iraq: CIA Director George Tenet told a joint hearing of the House and Senate intelligence committees that Saddam Hussein's apparent policy of not resorting to terrorist attacks against the United States (remember, there's no record of his direct involvement since 1993, although Bush does take that one kinda personally) could change if he concludes a U.S.-led attack against him was inevitable.
Tenet, in a letter read before a Tuesday, said that "Baghdad for now appears to be drawing a line short of conducting terrorist attacks with conventional or chemical or biological weapons."
But Tenet went on to say that should Saddam conclude that a U.S.-led attack against his country could not be deterred, "he probably would become much less constrained in adopting terrorist action."
Let's get this straight--The CIA has concluded that an attack on Iraq would make its using WMDs in a terrorist strike more, not less, likely? Great.
