A letter written by Republican and Democratic leaders of the House intelligence committee reportedly charges that the CIA used out of date, "circumstantial" and "fragmentary" information in its conclusions about Iraq's weapons capabilities, according to The Washington Post. The CIA says it can't comment until it sees the letter from Congress. NPR's Steve Inskeep talks with Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI).
