Serious flaws

How is it that we can have politicians who justify a war using blatently poor intelligence information, then gradually move the goalposts so that this justification is no longer needed, and when a supposedly independent report into the intelligence used to make the case for war is published highlighting "serious flaws" in its collation, accuracy and use, it can conclude that NO-ONE was in fact to blame or should be held accountable?

Are we expected to believe that we weren't willfully mislead, and that our intelligence services and politicians are merely incompetent? I'm not sure which is worse. Either way, it doesn't inspire credibility or confidence in Tony Blair or the government, does it?
