Not sure I agree on McCain. He's been campaigning for Bush and was on one of the Sunday news shows repeating the "Clinton had the same intelligence" line over and over again, clearly coached. He also said then and later that he does not believe the intelligence was manipulated. And yet, Atrios has a post on a WSJ journal today that says diagrams Bush claimed we'd found in Afghanistan do not exist. In the comments section to that post c.c. posted the url below to a Knight-Ridder story in the Seattle Times that gives examples of how the public version of the intelligene estimate was redacted, with caveats and contradictory opinions edited out. The fact that McCain would even agree to sit on the committee, given its extremely narrow remit, raises doubts about how he views his role these days. Silberman is outrageous of course, but I've read good things about Pat Wald and it's nice to hear them seconded by you.

McCain was as hell-bent as Bush on getting us into Iraq. His powers of self-reflection are a bit more developed than Bush's, but he might not want to make himself out to be a complete ass in hindsight.

McCain has already exonerated Bush, and is campaigning for him. So much for 'independence.'

I agree with what's been said about McCain in the comments, but I would like to point something out:

"So much for 'independence.'"

Being independent (while belonging to a political party) means you don't tow the party line and that you think for yourself. It doesn't mean that you are anti-Bush or always alone in the wilderness. Perhaps McCain really thinks that Bush was mislead and that the war in Iraq was just. He came to the conclusion himself, although I myself highly disagree with it.

I predict a Bush-McCain ticket.

Past time for Team B. Some suggestions: Hans Blix, Joe Wilson and Valerie Palme, Robin Cook, etc. They don't need access. They have had it.
