Head Scratcher of the Day

First Russian president Putin gave hope to the Bush administration today by revealing that even if the U.S. can't find credible evidence of Saddam's terrorist proclivities, they certainly had it (and passed it along). But they still don't think whatever information they gave us warranted the invasion. But now the State Dept. is saying, "you did? Funny we don't remember that..." So....if such information sharing occurred, it apparently went through non-state department channels. Curiouser and Curiouser. I mean, if this were a Tom Clancy novel the Russkies would have tipped off Jack Ryan directly but I'm at a loss as to how that situation translates into the current administration and intelligence beaurocracy. Did Bush, or Rummy or Condie get a personal phone call from the Kremlin??? If so, then why don't they just freaking *say* so??? Did they directly/indirectly "leak" information to a known CIA operative? OK then - they can blame Tenet once again. Better throw in some popcorn 'cuz I'm dying to see how this one ends....
