Flawed Intel?

Bush disappointed with intel before Iraq war - 13 May 2008 at 10:51pm - WASHINGTON -- President Bush said Tuesday he was disappointed in "flawed intelligence" before the Iraq war and was concerned that if a Democrat wins the presidency in November and withdrew troops prematurely it could "eventually lead to another attack on the United States."
I'd say he's an idiot for claiming the intelligence was flawed, but I'm afraid he's simply lying. By now, he must be as familiar as any of us are with the pre-Iraq-war NIE, which essentially said that while one could assume whatever one wished, there was insufficient evidence to draw any conclusions one way or another.
