Well, I guess we should have waited to invade until last year:
SCOTT PELLEY, CBS’ “60 MINUTES”: January ’03, the President, again: “imagine those 19 hijackers this time armed by Saddam’s Hussein,” is that what you’re telling the President?
GEORGE TENET: No.
The Vice President up the ante, claiming Saddam had nuclear weapons when the CIA was saying he didn’t.
PELLEY: What’s happening here?
TENET: I don’t know what’s happening here. The intelligence community’s judgemnet is he will not have a nuclear weapon until the year 2007, 2009.
PELLEY: That’s not what the Vice President is saying.
TENET: Well I can’t explain it.
