Sure, it made for a fine photo op. But based on the Bush administration's decision-making processes there is good reason to believe that A) the people at the NSA who created the mock-ups for public relations purposes died unexpectedly and the people who took over their jobs didn't know that the intelligence they were looking at was meaningless drivel produced for the benefit of manipulating public opinion, or B) the NSA is only showing the Bush administration the same mock-ups that the rest of us get to see.

In either case, the whole show begs the question "Who's really in charge?" as well as "What electronic voting equipment manufacturer elected THEM President?"
