Their master plan of finding WMD's backfired on the Army of idiots. (rough transcript)

Mitchell: ...Peter Hoekstra in fact said, Quote: "Let's unleash the power of the Internet on these documents to see if there was a smoking gun on WMD's"---the intelligence experts were reluctant to release these documents..Skeptics at the time said that all this was being done by conservative bloggers and others on the Intelligence committees to try and bolster their argument that the war was in fact justified in the first place.

These specific dozen documents--they did have a blue print for making bombs and those technical documents could have been helpful to terrorists...The net affect would likely be that it would hurt the administration because it shows that they---once again---were the gang that couldn't shoot straight!---they forced the Intelligence community to do something that the experts didn't want to do and the President himself overruled John Negroponte on.

Sadly, No! has more...
