“There is no evidence that [National Security Advisor Condoleezza] Rice raised major objections to the war [in Iraq] or serious questions about the false intelligence that justified it. As a result, she failed in a basic part of her job as national security adviser, which was presenting the president [Bush] with all the options, particularly dissenting opinions. ‘The dog that did not bark in the case of Iraq’s W.M.D. program, quite frankly, in my view, is the National Security Council,’ David Kay, the [Bush] administration’s onetime weapons hunter, told Congress in remarks aimed at Rice in [August 18] 2004.”
