Intelligence Jeopardy

by justmy2 @ 9/21/2004 11:53:00 PM

Fine men and women, wake up each morning and go to work in Langley, VA with the goal of protecting this country through analysis of intelligence data that is gathered daily

Apparently, their work is not worth the paper it is written on according to the President, at least based on a statement he made today. They are wasting their time...

President Bush, determined to put an optimistic face on deadly turmoil in Iraq, said on Tuesday that the CIA was just guessing when it said the country was in danger of slipping into civil war.

The CIA laid out several scenarios. It said that life could be lousy, life could be OK, life could be better. And they were just guessing as to what the conditions might be like,' Bush told reporters during a picture-taking session with Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi.

The classified document, known as a National Intelligence Estimate, predicted three possible scenarios ranging from a tenuous stability to political fragmentation and civil war.

In October 2002, a National Intelligence Estimate argued that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction and helped the administration justify its decision to go to war. No large stockpiles of such weapons have been found.

That should boost the morale of the fine employees at Langley...

Fine leadership if I do say so myself.....
