AFTER A YEAR-LONG REVIEW, SENATORS HAVE RELEASED THEIR FINDINGS CONCERNING INTELLIGENCE LEADING UP TO THE WAR IN IRAQ. THE KEY QUESTION? WERE INTELLIGENCE ANALYSTS PRESSURED BY THE WHITE HOUSE TO PRESENT INFORMATION THAT SUPPORTED THE WAR. THE ANSWER? THEY WERE OBJECTIVE, BUT CARELESS.

(SOT Sen. Pat Roberts/R-Kansas - Chairman, Intelligence Committee

What the pres and congress used to send the country to war was intel that was flawed) SOME DEMOCRATS ON THE REPUBLICAN-LED INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE SAY THEY'RE NOT COMPLETELY COMFORTABLE WITH THE REPORT. THEY'RE ADDING AN "ALTERNATE" VIEW, SAYING SOME ANALYSTS "DID" IN FACT FEEL PRESSURE TO EMPHASIZE CERTAIN BITS OF INFORMATION OVER OTHERS.

"IF WE KNEW THEN WHAT WE NOW WE WOULD HAVE NOT AUTHORIZED GOING TO WAR."
THE 500-PLUS PAGE REPORT BLASTS THE CIA, AND ACCUSES THE AGENCY OF NOT CONNECTING THE DOTS AND OVERSTATING EVIDENCE....GIVING PRESIDENT BUSH MISLEADING INFORMATION ABOUT WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION....THE REASON PRESIDENT BUSH TOLD THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD WHY THE U.S WAS GOING TO WAR.

(SOT) Roberts

"this was a global intel failure"
THE REPORT COMES OUT JUST TWO DAYS BEFORE C-I-A DIRECTOR GEORGE TENET OFFICIALLY STEPS DOWN. WHEN ASKED PRE-WAR IF IRAQ HAD WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION, HE REPORTEDLY TOLD THE PRESIDENT: "IT'S A SLAM DUNK". BUT HE DEFENDED HIS AGENCY YESTERDAY IN A GOODBYE SPEECH TO EMPLOYEES.

"These have been eventful years, filled with exhilaration and triumph, pain and sorrow, and yes with questions about our performance, such is the nature of a tough, essential business."

After leaving Lebanon, Corporal Wassef Ali Hassoun will stay at a German hospital for several days for ``debriefing and evaluation.''
Hassoun turned up in his native Lebanon more than two weeks after he went missing from his base in Iraq.
There was speculation he might have deserted, and was heading to Lebanon when he was purportedly kidnapped by insurgents.
Military officials are investigating whether the entire kidnapping might have been part of a hoax.

The paper reports more than two dozen cases of late-model Honda C-R-V sport utility vehicles bursting into flames, shortly after their first oil changes.
No injuries have been reported, but many of the vehicles -- from the 2003 and 2004 model years -- were destroyed.
A federal highway agency says the problem stems from improperly installed oil filters that most likely leaked oil onto the vehicles' hot exhaust systems.
Honda, meanwhile, says it's not planning a recall.
