Bush still playing WMD card--CIA said otherwise.
There is one slight problem with Mr. Bush's summary though: Agence France-Presse reported that during a recent CBS 60 Minutes interview, a retired CIA operative, Tyler Drumheller, said that prior to the invasion of Iraq, the CIA had learned from former Iraqi foreign minister Naji Sabri--who doubled as a covert intelligence agent--that it was highly doubtful that any weapons of mass destruction would be found in Saddam's fiefdom.
"The group that was dealing with preparation for the Iraq war came back and said they were no longer interested," said Drumheller. "And we said 'Well, what about the intel?' And they said 'Well, this isn't about intel anymore. This is about regime change.'"
