    Unquestionably, they are a bunch of very severe incompetents. They failed to timely focus on obvious risks and ignored red flags and warnings. But unsubstantiated speculation that this was intentional and in furtherance of the neo-con agenda seems rather excessive.

    The cover-up, the repeated lies, and the strategic trashing of Clarke are more fertile areas of critique.

      in terms of yielding tangible results (i.e. someone actually being held accountable) I would agree, but it does not at all seem "excessive" to speculae about motive: criminal lawyers do this all the time.
