I keep wondering what makes 'Intelligence' so unintelligent, notwithstanding the recent revelations of their 'failure', or rather long 'shortcomings', concerning Iraq's posession of WMDs. When Iraq embarked on a ten-years nuclear weapon program in 1981, they had little inkling on the voluminous scope of this program when the 1991 Gulf war commenced, as explained in my first article
(November 21, 2002). Yet, after the devastation of that war and the spread of IAEA inspectors and CIA agents all over Iraq, they claimed that Iraq was rejuvenating a decapitated nuclear weapon program. They were even (encouraged) to hoist that 'evidence' in 2002 as the linch pin for the American-English invasion and occupation of Iraq, when in fact that program had ceased to exist since the first night of bombardment in 1991.And now
"Strategists who keep close tabs on the war in Iraq are scratching their heads over a sudden shift to large-scale attacks on American bases by the insurgents who heretofore have primarily bedeviled U.S. forces with their roadside bombs and hit-and-run attacks."Iraq insurgents switch strategy, go for major attacks

Only three Marines were lightly wounded' while 'The insurgents .. were thrown back after losing an estimated 19 killed and 15 wounded as fighter-bombers and helicopter gunships summoned by the Marines raked their positions',then you might well ask when and where, indeed, will be the third attack, and the fourth, and the .....Somehow 'Intelligence' and their Think-Tanks are becoming too septic for me.By the way, there are many more damning videos, and not from 'CNN and FOX' , if anybody is interested in seeing where her/his tax money is being blown up.Video grabs showing the attack near Al-Qiam
