If there are a lot of people out there who think like him, and I'm pretty there are, this revelation is a big deal. Bush trusted a conman over one of Saddam's inner circle, and he did so because, as one of George Tenet's deputies says to the CIA agents trying to get the truth out:
"You haven't figured this out yet. This isn't about intelligence. It's about regime change."
Like something straight out of a Tom Clancy novel.
