Weapons of mass dissent

Why wasn't this the headline yesterday?
Up until the days before U.S. troops entered Iraqi territory that March, the intelligence community was inundated with evidence that undermined virtually all charges it had made against Iraq, the report said.

In scores of additional cases involving the country's alleged nuclear and chemical programs and its delivery systems, the commission described a kind of echo chamber in which plausible hypotheses hardened into firm assertions of fact, eventually becoming immune to evidence.

That's a little different from the "Gee, everyone was soooo wrong!" report all the major outlets were reporting intially.
