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.
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.
