CIA warned White House -- no WMD programs in Iraq.
A retired senior CIA official
interviewed by 60 Minutes
claims that the White House ignored intelligence from Iraq's foreign minister, Naji Sabri
in the run-up to the invasion. CIA Director George Tenet delivered the information to President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and other high-ranking officials in September 2002
, according to the CIA official. A few days later the administration said it was no longer interested. "...we said 'Well, what about the intel?' And they said 'Well, this isn't about intel anymore. This is about regime change.' "
The interview airs on CBS, Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
