What's the real story??

Bush and Cheney knew what was going to be in the NIE for months. That's not a stretch. It's completely unbelievable that they didn't ask or weren't told what was coming.
They tried to drum up support for a war anyway.
Hoping to rush us to war. Then the NIE would come out and they'd say that no one knew that there was no nuclear program in Iran.
The only question is why they didn't start the bombing.
Could it be that they gave the order and the military didn't do it?
In the meantime one has to wonder why the French president Sarkozy was saying the same things about Iran along with Cheney and Bush.
There's a back-story we're not hearing.
