Republican attempts to paint the findings as a partisan rehash were undercut by intelligence committee members from the GOP. The committee reports conclusions are based on the Democrats findings because two Republicans -- Sens. Olympia J. Snowe (Maine) and Chuck Hagel (Neb.) -- supported those findings.
Read that again: the "reports conclusions are based on the Democrats findings," with "bipartisan" cover provided by Chuck Hagel and Olympia Snowe.
The stuff on WMD is basically old news, which will be resuscitated by the issuance of this report. Of course, bad intelligence (believed by everyone, including President Clinton and most western intelligence agencies) is different from lying, but that distinction is lost on the Bush-haters.
The discussion of ties between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda is more nuanced in the report than in the news coverage Ive seen and, again, is nothing new: everyone agrees that there were contacts and that there might be (or have been) cooperation where the anti-American interests of the two parties coincided.
