“On Saturday, July 5 [2003], [CIA Director George] Tenet talked to the chief NSC [National Security Council] spokesperson, Anna Perez. As best she could tell, the fact that the 16 words about the uranium [sought in Niger by Iraq] had made it into the State of the Union address was the result of failures in both the NSC staff and the CIA. …Tenet had not reviewed the final State of the Union draft as he was supposed to do.”

 – Bob Woodward, State of Denial, Page 231
