Of all the officials that remain employed who should've been fired due to the Iraq debacle, the single most egregious example is Condi Rice. She has proven to be truly, without dispute, the most incompetent NSA in our nation's history.

Despite overwhelming proof to the contrary, she still maintains a stance that is utterly ridiculous:

In July, a bipartisan report by the Senate intelligence committee, which reviewed all of the intelligence on the tubes, said that information available to intelligence analysts "indicated that these tubes were intended to be used for an Iraqi conventional rocket program and not a nuclear program." The report also said that assertions that Iraq was reconstituting its nuclear program were "not supported by the intelligence."

David Albright, president of the Institute for Science and International Security, who has written extensively on the tubes, said that Rice "was grasping at straws" to suggest there is still a debate on the issue. He said there is little dispute within the intelligence community now, with the "overwhelming number of experts and the evidence" concluding the Energy Department analysis was correct.

"I think she is being disingenuous, and just departing from any effort to find the truth," Albright added. (Washington Post)
