CIA v. Senate Intelligence Committee

I am surprised that the CIA is refusing to declassify significant portions of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on the intelligence used to justify the invasion of Iraq. Why suprised? Because I think the administration's strategy from this point on will be to lay as much blame as possible on the CIA. Without Tenet, the Agency is a scapegoat, something the White House can point a finger toward without having obvious blowback [read: their initial allocation of blame won't be laughable].

That is, of course, unless the Agency has already decided to blow back on its own. Given the rash of leaks confronting the administration at every turn, it may be that Tenet wanted to get out before the Agency fully revolted.
