Downing Street memo: A question for Mr. Bush

In response to the Bush / Blair defense regarding the Downing Street memo:

Mr. Bush, you are on record as saying to Congress and the American people, over and over and over again, on national television, among other claims not supported by pre-war intelligence, that Iraq posed a clear and present danger to national security, when the intelligence that you were given prior to these statements shows that these positions were not considered "credible" by the intelligence community. For instance: the famed uranium-from-Niger assertion, which you used in attempt to substantiate your claims regarding the threat of Nuclear weapons from Iraq: you were told to remove that statement from your speech because the CIA did not consider the evidence "credible" but you used it in your 2003 State of The Union speech in spite of its lack of credibility. How can Congress and the American people take what you say as "credible", when the CIA does not?
