This afternoon on CNN, Bob Novak did a farewell interview with Wolf Blitzer to commemorate the end of his 25-year career with the network (before he heads over to the more comfortable surroundings of Fox News). In the interview, Novak revealed that he had better pre-war intel sources on Iraq than President Bush did:
NOVAK: I said several times on this network that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
BLITZER: How did you know that and the President of the United States, Vice President of the United States were convinced that there were?
NOVAK: Because my sources. I don’t run my own CIA. My sources didn’t think there were — in the military, people I trusted. And the indication of the inspectors indicated there was no weapons.
Where was the leak when we really needed it?
UPDATE: Crooks & Liars has the video.
