Intelligence failures

A hue and cry is arising about the failure to find WMD in Iraq. One of the actually relevant issues there is whether the failure to find WMD indicates a massive failure of our intelligence apparatus. However, what I'm going to write about is the contrast between the demand to investigate these failures with the lesser complaints about clearer failures concerning the 9/11 attacks. Of course, those failures would reflect badly on Bill Clinton. The failure in the Iraq WMD case reflect poorly on President Bush. Could that be the difference?
