George Tenet, in comments to the Senate Armed Services Committee, disputed VP Cheney's assertion that Iraq had weapon stockpiles and whether there existed a relationship between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaida leader Osama Bin-Laden.
During the hearing Carl Levin and Edward Kennedy pressed Tenet hard on White House assertions about pre-war claims. This will not help the relations between the Administration and the intelligence community. It looks as though this is turning into a "He said He said" fiasco. If they're not careful this will start to steal the spotlight from Bush's stellar re-election campaign.
