Why this White House fails the trust test

Link via DailyKos. The New York Times has an article today that chronicles how they discounted their own nuclear experts about Saddam's nuclear program. This was in 2002 about the aluminum tubes you may recall. Inside the White House they spoke among themselves about how thin their evidence was but that was certainly not how they played it in public.
Mr. Cheney told a group of Wyoming Republicans the United States had "irrefutable evidence" - thousands of tubes made of high-strength aluminum, tubes that the Bush administration said were destined for clandestine Iraqi uranium centrifuges, before some were seized at the behest of the United States.
Now remember, this was at the time that North Korea's nuclear weapons program was in full swing.
