Flaws In the Iraq WMD Estimate

Posted by at 7:34 PM Read our previous post

National Intelligence Council Chairman Thomas Fingar expounds on flaws in the Iraq WMD National Intelligence Estimate.

I found this bit particularly disturbing:
"This will sound harsh, but the terrible NIE that has been blamed for having had such a deleterious impact, in fact was read by almost nobody. It's really quite striking. Because of its classification—it had to be signed out. So, we know that hundreds of people claimed that they were misled by something that they hadn't read. I haven't figured out the explanation for that yet."

Oh, brave new world!
