Smells like Cheney

Excerpt from the latest CIA handbook:

Information that does not meet the administration's foregone conclusions will be shelved and the appropriate personnel will be kicked in the teeth.

The Central Intelligence Agency was told by an informant in the spring of 2001 that Iraq had abandoned a major element of its nuclear weapons program, but the agency did not share the information with other agencies or with senior policy makers, a former C.I.A. officer has charged.

I have no way of telling whether the agent's accusations are true or false, or whether the investigations into his behavior are justified or are retribution.

But in light of the whole Rove-Plame scandal, it sure seems plausible.
