Now it’s the Washington Post’s fault …

Yesterday we gave Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan), Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, another citation for great moments in water-carrying.

Looking at the unfolding pre-war intel debacle, Roberts put all the blame on the CIA, telling the Post that “the executive was ill-served by the intelligence community.”

Now he says the Post “mischaracterized” his statement. This from Knight Ridder

Roberts issued a statement late Friday, saying the Post article had “mischaracterized” his statements. “The committee has not finished its review of the intelligence and has not reached any final conclusions or finished a report,” Roberts said.

A Roberts aide, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the senator’s remarks to the Post weren’t meant to be a broad critique of the CIA, but were instead aimed at specific instances of flawed intelligence work, such as the now-debunked claims about Niger sales of uranium to Iraq.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave …
