Satisfatied yet?

Oh I hope this doesn't sound too "pessimistic", but, regarding the infamous PDB:

Doesn't it seem reasonable that this document is only the tip of the iceberg? As I think Kevin Drum noted, the PDB reads alarmingly like the cliff notes to the cliff notes of your standard letter to the editor in Foreign Affairs. And, as we all know from Ron Suskind's gracious sharing of White House memos, Bush has things explained to him in the most simple terms possible. It begs the question of whether this memo represents merely the super-watered down version of high level intelligence circulating among executive branch staff pre-9/11 and whether the rest of the group was getting briefings with a bit more meat on the bones.

But maybe that's just some hatred filled conspiracy talk. I do have that book to promote.
