Delayed Iraq NIE Will Undermine Case For Escalation:
"Yesterday, NPR host Diane Rehm may have revealed why the NIE remains so politically sensitive. On her national radio show, Rehm said:It’s my understanding that the National Intelligence Estimate…is going to suggest that adding troops is the wrong way to go, that it’s not going to improve the situation.

Well, Golly gee! I wonder what Joe Neocon Lieberman and his partner in crime John Sleepyhead McCain have to say about this?
