Reuters reports: Donald Rumsfeld, “asked about the N.I.E. report that concluded the Iraq war had spread Islamic radicalism, said intelligence could be faulty and sometimes ‘flat wrong.’ ”

  • Really!?!? How enlightening to hear that—three years after we went to war based on faulty and manipulated intelligence.


    Reuters:

    U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said on Thursday there was no way to measure if more Islamic extremists were being created than killed in American-led operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Asked about a U.S. intelligence report that concluded the Iraq war had spread Islamic radicalism, Rumsfeld said intelligence could be faulty and sometimes “flat wrong.”

    Rumsfeld, who was speaking to reporters after a NATO meeting in Slovenia, would not comment on the details of the report, a portion of which was declassified by President George W. Bush.
