COMPARE AND CONTRAST….Three weeks ago, conservative Republicans on the House intelligence committee released a report criticizing the U.S. intelligence commtittee for not being aggressive enough about gathering information on Iran’s nuclear threat. “We think it’s important for the American people to understand the kinds of pressures that we are facing and to increase the American public’s understanding of Iran as a threat,” explained Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-Mich).
Today, the IAEA ? which, you may recall, turned out to be right about Iraq ? wrote Hoekstra a letter complaining that the report contained “erroneous, misleading and unsubstantiated statements.”
I’ve reproduced the Washington Post’s coverage of these two events below. Do you notice any differences? I’ve provided some subtle clues in case you’re having trouble figuring it out.
