Posted this as a comment at Digby's place. Am re-posting it here, as I am too lazy to come up with a new thought for this space.

Intelligence agencies warned about growing local insurgency in late 2003

"This was stuff the White House and the Pentagon did not want to hear," the former official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. "They were constantly grumbling that the people who were writing these kind of downbeat assessments `needed to get on the team,' `were not team players' and were `sitting up there (at CIA headquarters) in Langley sucking their thumbs.'"

Even though the writing at PowerTools makes my eyes and brain glaze over, I have seen enough to know that they are of the opinion delusion that the CIA has been actively trying to make Bush look bad. Through leaks or, I don't know, logical thought, or whatever.

After reading this Knight Ridder article, I think that the Tools need to take it a step further. They need to consider whether or not the CIA has been actively funding and arming the insurgency. It's the next illogical conclusion.

If they weren't "on the team," then they must have been on the "other team," right? And maybe they really were on the other team, not just rooting for them? And those IED's must have come from somewhere! The C f*ing I A!
