Iran Threat...Played Down?

Seriously? Played down?

Some senior Bush administration officials and top Republican lawmakers are voicing anger that American spy agencies have not issued more ominous warnings about the threats that they say Iran presents to the United States.

Some policy makers have accused intelligence agencies of playing down Iran’s role in Hezbollah’s recent attacks against Israel and overestimating the time it would take for Iran to build a nuclear weapon.

Because of course, the proper lesson to be learned from the over-hyping of the now bogus WMD threat is that we need to be more willing to play up any little shred of "evidence" of the threat posed by Iran.

What boggles my mind is that the neo-cons and hawks in this administration are not already totally and completely disgraced and discredited. Anyone who is this wrong about a threat, this wrong about a war, should never again be allowed to lecture the American people on the need for war.
