A key House committee issued a stinging critique of U.S. intelligence on Iran yesterday, charging that the CIA and other agencies lack "the ability to acquire essential information necessary to make judgments" on Tehran's nuclear program, its intentions or even its ties to terrorism.

"American intelligence agencies do not know nearly enough about Iran's nuclear weapons program" to help policymakers at a critical time, the report's authors say. Information "regarding potential Iranian chemical weapons and biological weapons programs is neither voluminous nor conclusive," and little evidence has been gathered to tie Iran to al-Qaeda and to the recent fighting between Israel and Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, they say."


given that we were in a similar situation as far as inteligence goes prior to attacking iraq, i'm wondewring how long it will be before another "dodgy dossier" apears

The international community will have learnt it's lesson from the Iraq scandal and will demand more hard evidence to back any kind of military action on Iran.

It's an interesting situation, either the Iranian secret service and the countries security services are to tight for CIA penetration or their simply chasing ghosts.

I think we give Iran less credit than it deserves. They certainly seem difficult to controll. I guess once bitten twice shy, eh?

less credit? I saw "credit"!
The credit could give to any county but Iran! For this govenment that dominate Iran today, they can use any methods even kidnaping dipolmat for weapon parts! I have said before in other thread, can I kidnap your family for something which you have given me before but now?
Less cradit?
A govenment anouncd that they are going to kill all of peope who are belong to a race or say, destroy a country which is a member of UN?
Logically, why we do Not allowed one person to kill or theat killing other person in our society no matter any country, because you killing one or to threat killing one means you'll kill anyone (else). You are the killer threat the whole society, so you must be killed first, or unarmed at least! For people in cosiety like so, for a country in our society is same too!
