CIA reports on Iraq

I suspect that most people who intend to comment on Doug Jehl's NYT scoop have already done so, but I wanted to get my two cents in. "The Central Intelligence Agency's station chief in Baghdad has warned that the situation in Iraq is deteriorating and may not rebound any time soon." The warnings were "echoed" in briefings by Michael Kostiw, a senior adviser to Porter Goss (and a shoplifter).

I'm sure everyone's surprised. Iraq is bad and getting worse, those closest to the action are the most pessimistic, and the only way we find out about it is through leaks. God forbid the people should know the impacts of their leader's decisions.
