WMD Report (continued again)

On the presidential commission report on WMDs which found fault with U.S. intelligence efforts, both had run articles which I have previously mentioned. In a post yesterday I noted that CNN had left their “scathing” story as the main “Inside Politics” article all weekend. Fox had added an article which offered another perspective to the report. Its headline was “Ex-CIA Chiefs Dispute Bush Intel Panel Claims.” This AP article was not picked up by CNN. Today, however, CNN ran a short article by a Time author headlined, “No holds barred,” which offers more details on the report which “was blunt in assigning blame for the flawed conclusion that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction (WMD), one of the major reasons Bush gave for invading Iraq.”
