David Kay misdirects national attention 

David Kay, hand picked by the Bush Administration to serach for WMD and construct the best case supporting the invasion and occupation of Iraq, has done his best for Bush by blaming faulty intelligence and inadequate groundwork by intelligence agencies worldwide, particularly the CIA. For the time being, he has successfully diverted meaningful public attention from "What did the administration know and how did they use it?" to "Why didn't the intelligence community know more accurately about the real status of WMD in Iraq?" Answering the first question would be valuable to the country in determining national character. Answering the second will address some intelligence process issues in play under very specific conditions and many inherent shortcomings of intelligence work in general. It would valuable for the continued employment of a few policy wonks and the Bush campaign staff. Take your pick.
