The time John McCain and Lindsey Graham relayed bad intelligence on a Sunday talk show

Pot, meet kettle:

The time John McCain and Lindsey Graham relayed bad intelligence on a Sunday talk show

From the piece:

In the 2003 lead up to the Iraq War, McCain and Graham made appearances on Sunday talks shows such as Meet the PressFox News Sunday, and Face the Nationwere they made the case that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and would not hesitate to use them.

"He is lying, Tim, when he says he doesn’t have weapons of mass destruction," Lindsay Graham said on Meet the Press on March 2, 2003. "For 12 years now, we’ve been playing this game, trying to get this man to part with his weapons of mass destruction."

Refresh my memory ...

While the attack on our Libyan consulate was tragic and led to the death of 4 Americans, what kind of damage did faulty intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq war lead to? If Susan Rice is unfit for service what does that make McCain and Graham (and a whole lotta other folks)?
