Reid didn't read pre-war Intel report

Thanks to Kira for passing this on to me.

How can that be? He's been saying that BushCo McHitlerburton lied and manipulated intel and evidence. That would imply that he actually read said intel and evidence! From Human Events Online:
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.), who is leading a spurious Democratic campaign that alleges President Bush misled the country into war, admitted last week that he did not read the National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction programs that Director of Central Intelligence George Tenet prepared in 2002 at the request of Senate Democrats specifically so Congress would have up-to-date intelligence as it debated whether to authorize the Iraq war.

The NIE was delivered to Congress at the beginning of October 2002, and Reid voted on Oct. 11, 2002, in favor of authorizing the war.
John Kerry: "I actually DID read the report...before I didn't!" That would explain why he supported the war...before he didn't!
