. . . . The question that the media has failed to ask them is did members of Congress (access it)?
Members of the House and Senate have said that they trusted the Bush, took him (and his administration) at his word about Iraq's WMD (and nuclear weapons ambition and capability) because they did not have access to the same intelligence that Bush had: The NIE.
According to Frontline, that's not true:
Which members of Congress read it and which members didn't?
If all members of Congress had access to it, why didn't they all read it before they voted to take the nation to war in Iraq?
