Does the U,.S. Government Really think we are all THAT stupid?

According to this morning's L.A. Times, the U.S. government's search for weapons of mass destruction (code name: invisible cloth!) was predicated solely on an unsubstantiated claim from an Iraqi defector:

"Despite persistent doubts about his credibility, Curveball's claims were included in the Bush administration's case for war without so much as a caveat. And when CIA analysts argued after the war that the agency needed to admit it had been duped, they were forced out of their jobs."

Now, I have to ask, are we collectively dumb enough to believe that a declaration of war, causing the loss of thousands of lives, was made without clarifying this? Oh come on, I wouldn't leave my doggie at a boarding kennel without getting at least three references!
