George Norris and Robert Campos, two civilian analysts working for the Army's National Ground Intelligence Center, have received awards for job performance. The analysts are former military men who are experts on foreign and U.S. weaponry. Their work has been cited by the Presidential Commission into the intelligence failure on Iraq's WMDs as being a key failure.

WASHINGTON - Two Army analysts whose work has been connected to a major intelligence shortcoming on Iraq have received awards for job performance over the last few years, according to officials.

The two civilian analysts work at the Army's National Ground Intelligence Center — one of three U.S. agencies criticized by the presidential commission that probed U.S. intelligence on Iraq.

The Pentagon, in a written statement, told The Washington Post the awards for the analysts were to recognize their overall contributions on the job over the course of each of the past three years, and that "supervisors were encouraged to reward individuals on the basis of their annual contributions."

A few questions here. Why are these analysts still employed by the U.S government, let alone given awards for job performance! Hasnt any one been held accountable for the intelligence failures surrounding Iraq's nuclear ambitions?

Just more fuel for the fire.

I have a few questions of my own. Do you have any experience in doing intelligence analysis? Have you reviewed the raw data that the analysts looked at prior to making their conclusions? Do you know how they came to the conclusions that they made? Based on what you know and can prove, was this so-called intelligence failure caused by negligence or purposeful deciet, or was it due to an error in judgement and/or faulty primary data? If it was the former, you might have grounds for termination. Otherwise, I suggest you cut these guys a break and let those that have all the facts make the personnel decisions.

Generally speaking, you can probably hide their work behind a shroud of mysticism and James Bond movies, and say that we cannot possibly imagine how hard intelligence work is. That method may allure the weak-willed, chemical laser.

You are basically underestimating two things:
-the HUNDREDTHOUSANDFOLD MURDER AND KILLING GUYS LIKE THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR.
-the fact that THE PRESS KNEW THE "INTELLIGENCE" ON IRAQ WAS UTTER AND TOTAL NONSENSE, FORGERIES AND LIES

How can a specialized intelligence official be credited with an INFERIOR LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE THAN AN AVERAGE PERSON READING A SERIOUS NEWSPAPER ???
